QinetiQ’s POINTER™ static solution is specifically designed to support networked firepower for Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) and installations.
POINTER (Base Protection)
POINTER is a networked cueing system which works with the majority of in-service sensors. The system locates targets and provides information directly to those who will react. This delivers a fast, accurate and co-ordinated response that protects infrastructure and bases and their surrounding area, and saves lives.
Giving a precise visual indication of a target and its position, POINTER provides information on the range and bearing to target, enabling a call for indirect fire. The system can be:
fitted to wall-mounted protected weapon stations (Sangars)
used with any sensor, network or weapon mount
integrated with all crew served direct fire weapons and light vehicles
It is simple and intuitive to use, with a minimal training burden.
