Abstract (en)

The method involves transmitting at least one division time (Tz) to the programmable projectile, determining a point in time (Pz) of its division into multiple projectiles, which is corrected by means of a correction factor (K). The transmission occurs in the area of a conveyance path of the projectile (18) between a magazine of a gun and a beginning of the flight path of the projectile. A delay time dependent on the chosen transmission place is added to the division time. An Independent claim is provided for a corresponding arrangement implementing the method.

Abstract (de)

Bei diesem Verfahren erfolgt die Uebertragung der Zerlegungszeit im Bereich des Förderweges der Geschosse (18) zwischen einem Magazin eines Geschützes und dem Beginn des Flugweges der Geschosse (18), wobei die Zerlegungszeit (Tz(Vo_typ)) mittels einer von der gewählten Uebertragungsstelle abhängigen Totzeit korrigiert wird. <IMAGE>
