Elbit Systems launches HattoriX fire support system

6th December 2018 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems has launched a new man-packed fire support system called HattoriX for passive, precise and rapid target acquisition, the company announced 29 November.

HattoriX is designed to enable tactical teams - including forward observers, forward air controllers, joint terminal attack controllers, reconnaissance teams, field intelligence and special forces - to rapidly and independently acquire Category 1 (CAT-1) targets with a tap on a touch-screen display. The system increases the effectiveness of engaging time sensitive targets while reducing collateral damage.

Featuring a payload agnostic mission computer that runs proprietary software, photogrammetry algorithms and an augmented reality overlay of real-time C2 data, HattoriX performs automatic fusion of geographical information system database, pre-loaded target data, payload visual feed and C2 information, enabling the user to intuitively issue CAT-1 targets without using any emitters, and feed acquired targets and additional target information (image, video, description) into any battle management system.

Interfacing with any EO payload of choice, HattoriX is comprised of a Goniometer, a mission computer, a touch-screen display unit and a lightweight tripod. It also includes a remote-controlled configuration for extended force protection. 

According to the company, the system is already operational with an undisclosed client.
