Designation:

M1200 Armored Knight

Info
Manufactured by: DRS Technologies, Inc.  
Type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Reconnaissance Vehicle  
 
 

The M1200 Armored Knight is a precision targeting US military vehicle.

The Armored Knight evolved from the need to provide enhanced protection to soldiers who perform the targeting mission in a high-threat environment. This latest application of the Knight targeting package on a more survivable platform highlights the versatility of the design.

The Knight is a precision targeting system consisting of a laser designator/rangefinder, day/night electro-optic sensor, digital command and control, blended inertial/global positioning system navigation and targeting, and a self-defense weapon. Its mission is to provide precision far-target location and laser target designation for both artillery and air-delivered general purpose and precision-guided munitions.

The Knight system possesses the targeting accuracy required by todays precision-guided smart munitions, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition and Excalibur.

HIGHLIGHTS

Mission equipment package commonality with these vehicle platforms:

VERSATILITY

The Knight system was designed from the outset to be both platform- and sensor-independent. The next-generation M1200 Armored Knight integrates the base Knight targeting and communications package, in addition to providing improved ballistic protection to the crew. The system employs the Fire Support Sensor System (FS3) and the Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder on the M1117 Armored Security Vehicle.

PRECISION

Knight is the only system in serial production today with targeting accuracy equivalent to the delivery accuracies of todays precision-guided munitions, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition and Excalibur.

Knights position/navigation subsystem combines inputs from a laser rangefinder, inertial navigation unit, global positioning system (GPS) receiver and a vehicle motion sensor to provide precise self-location, navigation, and far-target location data. This data is then automatically formatted within the fire support tactical data system for immediate digital transmission as a call-for-fire or other message. Position and targeting data can also be incorporated into other battlefield command and control systems as necessary.
