Paper Abstract

The Visually Guided Vehicle uses the newly available microvideo systems combined with a miniature radio control system to allow precision delivery of non-lethal pyrotechnic combined with a miniature radio control system to allow precision delivery of non-lethal pyrotechnic effects at ranges of 1000 to 2500 meters. The man portable device contains a rocket powered, tube launched vehicle which powers to apogee and glides downward into the desired location. This semi-powered design saves significant weight. This paper will highlight the test data, photographs, and videotape of both the electronic components used in the design and the final non-lethal effects made possible by the complete system.
