HAIKS Mortar Fire Direction System

ASELSAN Mortar Fire Direction System (HAIKS) is a technical fire direction and data communications system designed to increase the fire power and first round hit capability of the mortars.   

HAIKS automates the technical fire direction processes in mortar platoon/sections. The system enables the fire direction center and the mortars to perform fire missions fast, accurately and effectively. The system also provides the mortar fire direction centers the capability of digital data communication with other fire support units including company fire support team headquarters, forward observers, maneuver and fire support command posts via tactical radios and wire.   

HAIKS fire direction software implements "NATO Armaments Ballistic Kernel" (NABK). The system computes the firing commands rapidly and precisely. HAIKS can be easily configured in order to support various unit organizations (e.g. 6 gun platoon with two or three sections each having two or three mortars) as required by the tactical situation.
