A rounds counter for a weapon mount is disclosed. The rounds counter is mounted on the mount in a remote location from the weapon itself, such as to a pedestal supporting a gimbal rotating the weapon mount in azimuth, inside an elevation drive housing, or to other structure. The mounting location is selected to be one where shock loads are relatively high, as compared to other locations on the mount. The rounds counter includes a sensor which senses shock due to the firing of the weapon, such as an accelerometer or strain gauge. The sensor could also be ...
We claim: 1. A rounds counter for a weapon mount, comprising: a) a sensor for sensing shock imparted to the weapon mount from the firing of a weapon held by the weapon mount and generating a sensor signal, wherein the sensor is mounted to the weapon mount in a location remote from the weapon, and b) electronic circuitry receiving the sensor signal and generating a count of each firing of the weapon, wherein the electronic circuitry comprises 1) analog circuitry coupled to the sensor and generating an output analog signal, and 2) digital circuitry compri...
