|Support & Capability Solutions|
John Cockerill Defense maintains a 'cradle to grave' philosophy to the design, developement, introduction into service support and through-life support for all Cockerill weapons systems. This professional support approach optimizes the total cost of ownership to the customer throughout the entire service life of John Cockerill Denfese equipment. this whole-life support includes:
-Integrated logistics support (ILS): all Cockerill weapons systems are designed for maintainability from the outset and are intimately supported during introduction into service to the customer organization. This includes the development of technical publications, operator and maintainer training developement and delivery up to Master Gunner level, spares and supply chain optimization, special tools and test equipment, life cycle cost modelling and obsolescence management.
-Through life support (TLS): John Cockerill Defense Through Life Support team offers a Maintenance Management Information System (MMIS) that allows the customers to optimize preventive maintenance of their weapons systems. It can also provide dedicated in-country support and engineering support for the mid-life upgrade of all Cockerill weapons systems and for other manufacturers turrets.
-Training & Simulation: John Cockerill Defense designs and carries out world class training, encompassing the complete training spectrum. Covering both the theoretical and practical aspects, these trainings in particular include exercises with live firing and with John Cockerill Defense simulators. The latter can be virtual immersive, mobile, embedded and inter-connected to allow for training at platoon level. John Cockerill Defense also provides sub-calibre training devices for all Cockerill weapons systems.-Capability Development: John Cockerill Defense is constantly innovating in order to best anticipate the growing and evolving demands of modern land forces in terms of firepower, mobility and protection requirements. These innovations share the same objective:to provide the optimal level of capability and support to in-service and new Cockerill weapons systems.
|The Cockerill CSE 90LP turret incorporates a gunner's day sight as standard, with night vision (image intensifying or thermal imaging) as an option. The weapon is aimed at target using an electro-mechanical gun and turret drive system. This permits fast movement of gun and turret during normal operation, and excellent slow-speed target-tracking for precision engagement. A laser range finder and ballistic computer permit precise target engagement. The gunner's sight image may be displayed at the commander's station to permit full command and control. For its self-protection, smoke grenades launchers can be fitted to each side of the turret to create smoke screen or close defence.|
