Description

The ATMOS is wheeled self-propelled howitzer truck, with on the rear part a Soltam Systems 155mm/52 calibre towed TIG 2000 system. ATMOS has been developed by the Israeli Compnay Soltam Systems as a private venture. Now Soltam is a subdivision of the Israeli Company Elbit Systems. According to Soltam Systems, wheeled self-propelled guns are not only cheaper to procure than their more common tracked counterparts, but have lower life cycle costs and are easier to operate and maintain. In addition they also have greater strategic mobility as they do not have to rely on Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET) to be redeployed over extended distances as do their full-tracked counterparts. Based on SOLTAM Systems 60 years of battle proven systems, offering the advantage of high fire power, mobility and short response time, ATMOS is rapidly deployed and operable in all terain. The modular ATMOS system is available with different qualified in-service trucks and gun caliber. The need for light, long range, fast moving artillery has been recognized for the new battlefield environments, especially in countries, in which terrain conditions, roads, rails and bridges put limitations to weight and size of traditional self-propelled artillery systems. Artillery units are called upon to engage a variety of targets, gapping long ranges, expecting counter battery fire within minutes of commencing fire. Soltam Systems is offering a complete solution tailored to meet any customer requirements, this includes complete and advanced artillery force built-up of all levels of battery, battalion and brigade comprising weapon systems, integrated with the electronic suits, battle management system through FDC units, FO units with target acquisition (ground and UAV), meteorological stations, all connected via digital command, control and communication systems. The ATMOS Soltam is transportable in a C-130 Hercules medium transport aircraft and does not require heavy equipment transporters in order to be relocated over long distances. The artillery system is operated by a crew of four or six, including two loaders. In april 2011, Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced April 6, 2011, that it was awarded a contract to supply self-propelled artillery and accompanying systems to an African country. In October 2012, Elbit Systems announced a contract for the delivery of ATMOS 155mm autonomous artillery system to a Far Eastern country.

 
Variants
- SOLTAM ADMOS D30: A D30 122mm Russian-made howitzer is mounted at the rear side of the truk chassis in place of the 155mm howitzer.

Armament

The basic upper gun system is Soltam System's most modern 52 calibre NATO Standard gun system, achieving a range of 41 km. Being a modular system it can adopt any other Soltam's or customer's gun. The ATMOS can be also equipped with a Russian M-46 gun 130 mm. The high firing rate of three projectiles per 20 seconds is achieved by using a unique new load assist device. Sustained firing rate is 70 projectiles in 60 minutes. The ATMOS howitzer carries on board 27 projectiles and charges ready to fire, and all the equipment, which are essential for operating the artillery piece efficiently and autonomously. The ATMOS is fully integrated with an embedded electronic suite. Together with the automatic laying system and automatic loading system it enables accurate navigation and autonomous operation, reduced crew, and increased fire power and accuracy.

Design and protection
The cab is armour protected and withstands small arms fire and shell fragments. The ATMOS is fully operated by four crew members. The vehicle's protected cabin can host six crew members and their equipment.
Mobility
The system comprises of any 6x6 or 8x8 serviceable truck with modified protected cabin and special supporting structure, APU driven hydraulic and electric systems, on board ammunition storage, ammunition handling and automatic loading systems. The first prototype of ATMOS was mounted on Tatra 6x6 truck. The maximum road speed is 80km/h and the range is 1,000km. The V-12 diesel engine is rated at 315hp at 2,200rpm. The ten-speed transmission has power-assisted mechanical gear shifting.
Accessories
The ATMOS uses precise and modern tactical computation, sensors and has a Multiple Round Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) capability.
The electronic suite is comprised of tactical computers, an INS navigation system, muzzle velocity radar, day and night sight, a digital communication link, and target acquisition systems. Elbit Systems offers a complete solution tailored to meet any customer requirements. The system includes complete and advanced artillery force build-up of all levels of battery, battalion and brigade comprising the weapon systems. It is integrated with the electronic suites, a battle management system through FDC units, FO units with target acquisition (ground and UAV), and meteorological stations. The components are all connected via digital command, control and communication systems.
