JETS is a new target designation system for artillery. A compact device the size of army binoculars and a mass less than 2,5 kg is able to determine all the necessary target data and transfer them to real-time gunners. Together with a tripod and additional batteries, the kit weighs less than 10 kg - this is several times less than the target designation system used by the American army now.
This is a completely new advanced technology that is a paradigm shift in how field artillery can be used on the battlefield. JETS can turn a howitzer or self-propelled artillery gun into a giant sniper rifle- said Lieutenant Colonel Michael Frank, Head of Soldier Precision Targeting Devices.
The US Army ordered JETS systems in September 2016 of the year, and over the past year they passed a series of tests, including strength (for landing). All tests were successful, and now the US armed forces have begun final testing of the system. If it is successful, then in the middle of this year, the American gunners will begin to receive JETS for service, reports "Warspot"
