Project Overview

REC2A is a project that aims at creating an integrated system for close air recognition. It will be guaranteed the compatibility with similar systems belonging to the armies of NATO countries.

General objectives and estimated results

The technical objectives are aiming at an integrated system for close aerial recognition, which will be used by terrestrial troops for air exploration of the tactical situation on the battle field of the enemy, processing and interpretation of data and taking the right decision with regard to the warfare actions, with minimal loses from the enemy side. The technical objectives of the project, as we have planned them, are the following:

  • Concept study regarding the REC2A system (the ballistic launching system, carrying vector, time-fuse, expulsion mode, parachuting mode, optoelectronic, transmission-reception, image processing devices, image processing software);
  • Study regarding the operating requirements imposed to the system modules and to the whole REC2A system;
  • The standard functional-constructive scheme of the REC2A system modules;
  • Design of the experimental model of the REC2A system;
  • Establish the technical characteristics and defining the REC2A system modules;
  • Elaborate the functional-constructive scheme of REC2A system modules;
  • Design and experiment the REC2A system modules, presentation and demonstration of their functionality and utility;
  • Set up the techniques and the design methods, measure, verify ad control of several optoelectronic devices intended for obtaining a quality image of the interest targets found at a average distance (app. 300 m), on day and night time (visibility ensured by an external source);

Creating this system at experimental model level and solving the main technical and technological problems represent the quantifiable objectives of the project, objectives that will represent the basis for developing next a product which will enter in the exploitation of the beneficiaries, ensuring compatibility with similar systems belonging to armies from NATO member countries, and further taking part to an European regional cooperation project.

The scientific objectives are represented by correlated studies with numerous experiments that would lead to mastering the phenomena that take place in the acceleration process, trajectory flight, release and unfolding of the parachute, operating, registration, encryption, tele-transmission, reception, storage and processing the video information, in accordance with the technical objectives previously described. We mention the following scientific objectives:

  • Design several models of the flight of the ammunition carrier equipped with miniaturized device for acquisition and transmission of images, establishing the flight equations of the ammunition;
  • Elaborate and verify the analysis software of the flight, for estimating the peril and risk areas;
  • Elaborate and verify the theory with regard to combination, initiation, deflagration or explosion of the mixture and simulation of the interior ballistic at the mouth.
