Clear2Fire Laser Safety System

Your challenge is our progress

Clear2Fire is a safety interlock that only allows lasing when it's safe. We would like to illustrate how this works with a compact laser weapon system. Clear2Fire generates a common operational picture by obtaining situational awareness data from several sources including the weapon system’s data. Based on the data sources and the user’s input, the laser would be inhibited or it would be allowed to fire your target.

 

As you can see here, situational awareness data can include the given airspace, satellites within the field of view, the terrain, and your safety zones. Weapon system data can include its geodetic location, orientation, gimbal direction, and the systems’ health.

BENEFITS

  • Helps prevent unintentional illumination of assets
  • Helps prevent friendly fire
  • Allows operation of laser system in urban environments
  • Aid in battlefield integration of laser systems

Preventive Fire Logic Based on:

  • Time, position, orientation, laser state
  • Air Picture
  • Laser Clearinghouse (LCH) Data
  • 2D and 3D safety region data
  • User input from Graphical User Interface (GUI) or Command Interface

A combination of hardware, software, and 20-years of development

  • Performs all safety calculations
  • Provide graphical user input
  • Safety configuration tools
  • 8 independent laser controls
  • Only interface to the lasers
  • Provides failsafe interlock
  • Only two states: inhibit / allow
  • Can control 8 independent lasers
  • All input to C2F is via UDP Ethernet packets
  • C2F processor can be fully virtualized
  • C2F state logging (for reporting and analysis)
  • 8 TTL interlock signals (more available on request)
