27SSG120 Navy Application Turret on Combat Boat 90 Joint Army/Navy programme to be in full operation from SD&D (PDF)Primary focus of tests is put on:Firing precision and accuracyFire on the moveTests also focused at subsystem compatibility; FCC, INS+GPS, MMISSG120 Navy will take full advantage from experience for the Army versionWorlds first truly remotely controlled mortar turretObjective also to pave the way for firing on the move with SSG120 Army version
28Areas of Particular Concern Today's ammunitionOnly qualified for transport in original boxesNot optimised for breech loading and direct fireNeeds a “man in the loop”FuzesNo inductive setter developed and testedNo inductive setting fuze developed for direct firingStub caseLogistic tailSystem responsibility
29Requirements SummaryWinter and summer trials successfully conducted by Swedish Army Combat SchoolThe SSG120 is fully autonomous and automatedThe SSG120 can fire on the move at moving targetsThe SSG120 has a significant development potentialSSG120 meets TRL7 today TRL: Technology Readiness Level in accordance with US definition
