INTERCOMPATIBILITY OF BRIDGE LAYERS MS-20 AND MG-20, PIOTR MAKULSKI
Abstract. The paper discusses two designs, developed by OBRUM, of the so-called layers placed on military bridges MS-20 and MG-20, the purpose of which is launching and retrieving the bridge span from over an obstacle. Specifications of the PM-20 bridge span are given. Differences in the design of the bridgelayers performing the same functions are presented. Reference is made to the obtained intercompatibility effect of the layers enabling the same bridge span to be handled by two independent vehicles: wheeled MS-20 and tracked MG-20.
CONTROL SYSTEM FOR Z10 CRANE ON MS-40 SUPPORT BRIDGE, TOMASZ MAKOWSKI, SZYMON PAWŁOWSKI
Abstract. The subject of matter of this article shows new concept of Z10 crane installed on associated bridge. It is the new version of engineering vehicles which are constructed in OBRUM. The paper presents solutions of control, data analysis and communication. Possibility of using a universal control panel is discussed.
IMPACT OF LIFE CYCLE COST ANALYSIS ON THE PONTOON BRIDGE CONCEPT SELECTION, ZBIGNIEW KAMYK, CEZARY ŚLIWIŃSKI
Abstract. The article discusses main issues in relation to life cycle cost analysis (LCC) of armament systems. Examples of the application of LCC in civilian bridges are provided. Furthermore, the structure of LCC for a pontoon bridge used in the Polish Armed Forces is analysed and a model for cost estimation with regard to LCC is presented. The LCC analysis was carried out for three concepts of a new pontoon bridge made of varying materials and the results of these analyses, as well as the probability of the application of LCC in the process of selecting the new design of the pontoon bridge for the Polish Army have been explored.
STAND FOR TESTING ADD-ON ARMOUR, MAREK Ł. GRABANIA, ANDRZEJ PILNY
Abstract. The paper describes a stand designed by the OBRUM's Design Office for testing ballistic resistance of additional armour. Discussed are the basic features of the stand that enable testing compliance of armour modules with the requirements of STANAG AEP-55. Collapsible design of the stand makes it a portable piece of equipment that may be carried using the available means of transport. The design enables testing armour provided with an additional component – spall liner. Possible areas of application are presented.
IMPLEMENTING THE NIGHT VISION EFFECT WITH THE USE OF A DEPTH MAP, MICHAŁ BUGAŁA
Abstract. The article presents a method of implementing the night vision effect applied in the Jaskier image generator of the JASKIER simulator. The operating principle of a night vision device is discussed along with image processing procedures with the use of modern computer graphics techniques. The effects obtained are summarised in conclusions.
