Distributed power supply of a laser weapon system
An energy storage device (301-350) stores electric power and line (301a-350a) outputs electric power. A control device (201-250) is connected to storage device through line (201a-250a). The laser-active medium (7) which is optically excited by electric power in optical radiation output (601a-650a) is changed. The control device (501-550) provides electric power from storage device through line (501a-550a). The control devices and lines are arranged in assembly (901-950) which transfers optical radiation output to laser active medium. The assembly is operated in individual manner.

Method and apparatus for engaging targets at different range
The invention relates to a method and an apparatus for engaging targets at different range with the aid of ballistic projectiles which are fired from a compressed-gas weapon (1), the gas pressure of which can be regulated. In order to engage targets at different ranges in a simple manner, without changing the elevation angle of the weapon, the invention proposes that the compressed-gas weapon (1) be connected to a fire control installation (7). In this case, the fire control installation (7) determines the muzzle velocity which is required in order to hit the target from the range to the target or target region, as predetermined by the user of the compressed-gas weapon (1) or as determined automatically by means of a laser rangefinder, and the elevation angle of the weapon barrel (3), as determined automatically for example with the aid of an angle sensor (5), as well as the mass of the projectile of the corresponding round. The fire control installation (7) then uses this velocity value, together with a table which is stored in a memory (10) in the fire control installation (7), to determine the gas pressure required for firing the projectile, and produces an actuating signal which appropriately adjusts the gas pressure in the compressed-gas weapon (1).

Illumination system for weapon optics
An illumination system for weapon optics includes a light source and one or more channels that direct light from the light source onto adjustment interfaces of a weapon optical device, such as windage and elevation turrets of a scope. An illumination system for weapon optics may also include an illuminated level device for positioning the weapon level in relation to the surface of the earth. An illumination system for weapon optics illuminates adjustment interfaces of a weapon optical device such that markings on the adjustment interfaces can be read in low-light and no-light conditions.

Determination of indicators of the hit probability of a weapon system
The method involves identifying the scenario parameters (36) of a weapon system, and reducing a global representation (42) of the weapon system to a representation (46a,46b,46c,46d), adapted to an indicator (24a,24b,24c,24d), based on the determined scenario parameters. The indicator is determined based on the reduced representation. A position or location of weapon system is provided in the scenario parameters relative to a target to be taken. The global representation approximates a branch of a parameter space from the scenario parameters. Independent claims are also included for the following: (1) a method for determining a representation of weapon system; (2) a computer program stored on a computer-readable medium for determining an indicator for the striking probability of a weapon system; and (3) a weapon system with sensors for determining the scenario parameters.

Laser detonated projectile apparatus
An intelligent projectile that can be detonated at a predetermined range via a wide angle infrared laser. The projectile is fitted with a detector that is sensitive to the frequency of a wide angle laser beam that is attached to the weapon. Using the range obtained by the range finder, the wide angle laser beam is fired when the projectile is in proper position relative to the target. To prevent the projectile from exploding prior to its being fired, a series of batteries is held in a track via compressions springs. The springs must be compressed via centrifugal force due to the projectile spinning as a resulting of rifling in the weapon. Once, sufficient centrifugal force is reached, the batteries will slide into a "contact" position so that the projectile can be detonated. The apparatus fits within standard 40 mm shell casings and can be fired by conventional grenade launching weapons.This application is a continuation-in-part of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 08/349,375, filed Dec. 5, 1994, which is a continuation-in-part of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 08/303,860, filed Sep. 9, 1994 which is a continuation-in-part of U.S. Pat. application Ser.
