  2. 2. Mk 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapon System Description: The Mk 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapon System (CIWS) is an integral element of the Ship Self-Defense System (SSDS) and the anti-air warfare defense-in-depth concept. CIWS is a radar-controlled, rapid-fire gun designed as a fast-reaction terminal defense weapon against anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs) penetrating outer fleet defenses. CIWS is capable of firing 4,500 rounds of penetrator ammunition per minute and is integrated with a search-and-track radar and weapon-control unit. A unique closed-loop fire control system that tracks both the incoming target and the stream of outgoing projectiles gives CIWS the capability to correct its aim to hit fast-moving and maneuvering targets. Enhancements to existing CIWS capabilities include the new High Order Language Computer (HOLC), which improves Phalanx performance against high- speed maneuvering targets. The Phalanx Surface Mode (PSUM) which uses electro-optical systems to provide day/night detection capability and enables the CIWS to engage small surface targets, slow-moving air targets, and helicopters has been developed and is scheduled for operational testing in FY 1998.
  3. 3. Mk 15 Phalanx CIWS Program Status: More than 400 CIWS systems have been deployed at sea on U.S. warships since the system was first tested in August 1973. Development and Operational Testing (DT/OT) of the HOLC fire-control system was completed in FY 1996, using the Self Defense Test Ship. Testing of the Phalanx Surface Mode capability continues in FY 1998. Developer/Manufacturer: Raytheon Missile Systems Company, Tucson, Arizona.

  9. 9. M61 Vulcan The M61 Vulcan is a hydraulically or pneumatically driven, six-barreled, air-cooled, electrically fired Gatling-style cannon, which fires 20 mm rounds at an extremely high rate. The M61 and its derivatives have been the principal cannon armament of United States military fixed- wing aircraft for fifty years. The M61 was originally produced by General Electric, and after several mergers and acquisitions is currently produced by General Dynamics. The Vulcan is a Gatling gun: each of the cannon's six barrels fires once in turn during each revolution of the barrel cluster. The multiple barrels provide both a very high rate of fire—around 100 rounds per second— and contribute to long weapon life by minimizing barrel erosion and heat generation. Mean time between jams or failures is in excess of 10,000 rounds, making it an extremely reliable weapon. The success of the Vulcan Project and its subsequent progeny, the very-high-speed Gatling gun, has led to guns of the same configuration being referred to as Vulcan Cannon, which can sometimes confuse nomenclature on the subject.
