Sadly only in russian. That's only math modelling tho, unknown if anything on this topic was already done in metal or if it will be at all.

Technology Maturation efforts are often only funded from yr to yr. As one can see SLRC funding goes into FY2022 and even rises.

Preface: This is my day job. I haven't work on this system myself But I know those who have and I have work on similer style systems. So this is coming from experience. So have my five cents.The folding platforms for the loader/gunner looks to be botched: too small and narrow, metal tends to be slippy and the deployment sequence is slow and done manually. Wouldn't a simple independent collapsible stool do the work better (you can adjust its position in function of terrain topography and your own physiology)?
The Hydros can probably be speed up a bit, but that probably a limiting factor of it being on a humvee. Which was design in the early 1980s and was not made with this in mind and is on its way out. So they probably DID the bare minimum amount to get it to work.The retraction time also for the stabilizing rear bars looks too slow (hydraulics). Given that's the main factor preventing the vehicle to move after firing, shouldn't they have put more money here?
Also it lacks a storing box.
The Army wants to fund ways to extend the range of its Precision Strike Missile – which is still under development – out to 1,000 kilometers or more in fiscal 2022, according to documents accompanying the service’s budget request....
....The Army is also requesting $188.5 million in research and development dollars for PrSM that would support the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the program and the integration of the Land-Based Anti-Ship Missile (LBASM) seeker.
I had this idea [silly?] that you take the exact local terrain color breakdown for what I called RACIT Rapid Camouflage Integration Technology. Basically using detailed imagery analysis you could print out and make uniforms (for small units like SpecOps) to instantly match the exact colors and in the proper percentages prevalent in the area of the operation.One World Terrain, which provides 3D maps as a training tool, just proved it can do more while deployed.www.defensenews.com
