Military Review

In the US, the computer did not allow to conduct tests for the noise of shooting operational-tactical missile artillery system HIMARS

110
Informational portal Military.com reports on an emergency situation at the Yakima training ground of the Lewis-McCord military base in preparation for testing the operational-tactical missile-artillery system HIMARS. The situation is connected with the fact that the tests were urgently stopped by a computer system. Specialists involved in the conduct of shooting, began to find out why the computer blocked the test activities.


In the US, the computer did not allow to conduct tests for the noise of shooting operational-tactical missile artillery system HIMARS


After checking the data of the computer system, it turned out that the car imposed a ban on shooting due to the fact that it considered the number of trees growing in the immediate vicinity of the landfill to be too large. According to the "version" of the computer, the presence of a large number of trees reduced the effectiveness of using the operational-tactical missile-artillery system to a minimum. Deciding that there is still no practical sense to shoot, the computer system and gave the command to a complete ban on testing.

It should be noted that the HIMARS tests at the Yakima test site of the Lewis-McCord military base should have been conducted to assess the noise level that the system creates. The fact is that residential areas are located in the immediate vicinity of the base, and knowing the noise level is extremely important.

It is not reported yet whether the test team will be cutting trees or will conduct “explanatory work” with the computer.

      the machine introduced a ban on firing due to the fact that it considered too large the number of trees growing in the immediate vicinity of the landfill. According to the "version" of the computer, the presence of a large number of trees minimized the effectiveness of using the operational-tactical missile-artillery system.


      The programmer who wrote this miracle is just fun!
      Now the warriors will investigate and find out that this Russian guy is joking so. (Russians are the main threat of the United States !!!!!!)
      The Greens should write out a bonus.

          Next time will be like that "According to the" version "of the computer, the presence of a small number of Russians reduced the effectiveness of the use of the operational-tactical missile-artillery system to a minimum. Having decided that there was no practical sense in shooting anyway, the computer system gave the command to completely ban the shooting."

          But what if the radar system counted not trees, but the amount of interference, if not surmountable targets? Or was it "frightened" of an explosion in a confined space? Fuck knows by what principle targeting in the doorstep was built. So the probability of an event has to be. Programmers will be able to explain better.

      And, in general, a logical question. Maybe they have a lot of new and beautiful work, but no one knows. Chernukha is driven - then the computer decides everything, then the cost of reworking a pepelats is more than the cost of that pepelats with R&D together, then the minuteman after "maintenance" must be disposed of ... continue? There, it seems, the entire budget is spent on maintaining 500-something bases, kickbacks and stupid maneuvers. Enlighten, colleague Stanislav 1978, what the sensible US Army has created recently.

      Stanislav 1978! 16.12/XNUMX. And who spoke of negative success? In life, sometimes you don’t think about some things by doing them automatically. And when they ask you a question: How do you do this? You fall into a stupor. Really! How am I doing this? Therefore, setting the plus or minus test, you need to look at where the plus and where is the minus. The article does not evaluate tests on a plus or minus scale. Where there is a plus, and where a minus everyone decides for himself. Personally, I don’t know how to evaluate the tests. The computer is blocked. Is it good or bad?

    I don’t even know, on the one hand, it looks like an April Fool’s joke, but on the other I’ve recently seen a film about the American brigade control system, where the commander on the tablet moves units on the map, and the computer determines which of the fighters are located, where the enemy is, where the sectors are shelling and gives infantrymen points for augmented reality target designation + where to move + artillery where to shoot.

    Now imagine how it will work after a nuclear explosion and the destruction of the GPS constellation.
    All fighters have, at best, a blue screen before their eyes, at worst, target designations at random.

    I’m silent about UAVs, but I can go ahead (I put a bottle of moonshine of my production): early or
    it’s too late for the developer to reduce the cost of combining the control channel and the technological channel through which the software is updated. By that time, 100 percussionists were riveted. This is probably where the history of the USA will end without any nuclear weapons.

    I read with interest the mockingly mocking comments of VO readers regarding the unsuccessful tests of the HIMARS operational tactical missile and artillery system.
    The author of the article writes very incorrectly. The Military.com portal says that the Americans decided to test this complex in conditions close to urban.
    Judging by the photo, this complex does not allow launching missiles in an upright position. This means, only one thing, that tall trees and houses will not allow the rocket to hit the target, which the computer issued. So the programmer screwed up here - I don’t know. You personally would not want the rocket explosion to occur near the launch complex with ammunition and a large supply of rocket fuel.
    The second one. The trees that are close to the start are probably a fire. And the article on this portal says that it was necessary to remove vegetation near the complex.
    Third, the Americans measured the noise level of rocket launch in urban conditions. And they came to the conclusion that it is not acceptable for the population and therefore it is impossible to carry out training launches in the vicinity of settlements.
    And finally. Russia is unlikely to test such systems in close proximity to settlements, and even more so in a dense forest - a fire in the taiga is provided. Who then save these complexes will be from fire and self-destruction.
    And the fact that the author of the article created a mockery from the description of these tests does not characterize him as an intelligent person.

      Not certainly in that way.
      Judging by the articles, they do not experience MLRS, but the possibility of training firing from this particular training ground.
      Accordingly, two problems arose: the first: noise and local residents, the second: trees and wildfire.
      Computers did not introduce any prohibitions and had nothing to do with the military and fire control. They worked on models. Predicted noise levels and forecasting the possibility of forest fires.

      Point by point:
      1) "Americans decided to test this complex in conditions close to urban."
      The development of HIMARS first became known in the 1994 year. AT 2002 year, The United States Marine Corps has agreed with the U.S. Army to acquire 40 HIMARS systems. Their deployment began in the year 2005. In July 2007 Years, Marines from the Fox Battery of the 2nd Battalion, 14th Marine Regiment were stationed in the Iraqi province of Al-Anbar. This is the first Marine Corps unit to use HIMARS in combat. "That is, this complex was tested in BATTLE CONDITIONS 9 (NINE !!!!) years ago. In addition - "Judging by the photo, this complex does not allow launching missiles in a vertical position. This means only one thing that tall trees and houses will not allow the missile to hit the target, which the computer issued" - this complex is banal MLRS of high power (such as our Hurricane and Tornado). Moreover, the missile itself is adopted in 1983 year, though on a different installation ..
      2) One must be a full American, so that after 80 years of existence of the MLRS, one does not need to know what trees are not desirable in front of them when shooting.
      3) "the noise level of missile launch in urban conditions. And we came to the conclusion that it is not acceptable for the population and therefore it is impossible to carry out training launches near settlements." - again, that for 80 years it did not become known that MLRS were very noisy and not worth shooting near cities ????
      4) "In Russia, it is unlikely that such systems are tested in the immediate vicinity of settlements, and even more so in a dense forest - a fire in the taiga is guaranteed. Who will then save these complexes from fire and self-destruction." are planning, if the Russian Federation is covered by a third of forests?

      USA - 400 PU, as of September 2011 of the year
      The US Army
      US Marine Corps
      Singapore
      Singapore Army - 18 PU, as of September 2011 of the year. The contract for a total of $ 330 million was executed in July 2010.
      United Arab Emirates
      Army - 20 PU (ordered)
      Canada
      Canadian Army - 20 PU (ordered)
      Jordan - 12 PU and 432 missiles, as of 2012 year

      P.S. most likely the author of the article is truly right and the Americans are trying to teach the computer to fully maintain the system (possibly except recharging, or maybe with it) in order to eliminate the human factor and increase the accuracy of shooting. Otherwise, complete nonsense ....

    Classic stuffing that does not disparage them in any way. Throwing in with the aim of "look what technology we have, a computer that counts trees. Now imagine what a cool army we have." Such computers, which count trees, apples, and so on, exist in single and test copies. This is not yet widespread. So there is no program or computer error there. It just doesn't exist.

    After checking the data of the computer system, it turned out that the machine imposed a ban on firing due to the fact that it considered too many trees growing in the immediate vicinity of the landfill.
