Methods, computer-readable media, and systems are disclosed for controlling a turret assembly with two or more gimbaled, swivel assembly sub-systems, such as a gimbaled gun and a gimbaled electro-optical sensor. The turret can be automatically slewed in response to one of the swivel assemblies rotating. A user can switch turret modes reflecting a priority between the gimbaled sub-systems system so that one takes priority over the other(s) during a mission.

Multiple independently gimbaled devices, such as an electro-optical sensor and machine gun, are mounted to a rotating platform on a vehicle. The platform can rotate to prevent one device from blocking the other while aiming at an off-board location. A control system can harmonize the rotation of the device gimbals and rotating platform so that they remain pointed at the same location. The platform can be rotated to place a firing weapon downwind of a sensor or otherwise compensate for effects of one on the other.

A coupler that generates and emits a simulated missile signature for assessing the operational capability of a missile approach warning system. The coupler may be directly attached to the system by an adapter. Couplers may be used in multiplicity, simultaneously or sequentially. The simulated signature may be digitally stored, as may be the results of the assessment. Simulated signatures may also be generated from freeform. The coupler also performs sensitivity testing.

Methods and apparatuses are presented for optimizing performance of a base vehicle platform (e.g. an automobile) and operating the base vehicle platform without human intervention. Some embodiments may receive base vehicle platform data indicative of at least one performance characteristic of the base vehicle platform. Some embodiments may also receive environmental conditions data indicative of at least one characteristic of at least one weather condition or terrain condition, and receive base sensor data from at least one base sensor indicative of at least one up-to-date environmental condition or base vehicle platform condition. Embodiments may then generate at least one module based on the base vehicle platform data, the environmental conditions data, and the base sensor data, such that the at least one module operates the base vehicle platform without human intervention, and dynamically modifies at least one base vehicle platform performance characteristic without human reconfiguration.
