Fire Support Information System
TECHFIRE is a fire support information system for mortars and artillery howitzers that automates and accelerates all the tasks related to the direct or indirect fire, in a single gun or a weapon unit, allowing increased precision and control over supporting fire processes.
Through its interactive, user-friendly graphical user interface, the system enables operators to deal with all kinds of fire control process data and offers a wide range of applications allowing users to exchange a great variety of operational information and orders. Moreover, it is compatible with all available communications systems, data management systems and laser rangefinders.
TECHFIRE improves precision and provides different ballistic solutions for mortar and artillery units.
PCC: Platoon Commander Computer: Module for Fire Support Coordinator. Controls, coordinates and commands the Fire Units, the Forward Observers and the Targets.
