SAFETY, CARE, AND HANDLING – (Continued)

Design features of the round shipping and storage container


include:
• A cover assembly containing a latch mechanism
that provides environmental and Electromagnetic
Interference (EMI) seals.
• Pressure and humidity control provided by a
humidity indicator, 2 packages of desiccant, and a
pressure release valve controlling positive and
negative container pressure to two pounds per
square inch differential.
• Four handles for lifting and tiedown and interlocking
posts to provide stack stability.

Rounds may be stacked 8 high in indoor storage, and 4 high


(depending on stack stability) on level, improved outdoor
storage. Use 4-inch dunnage for indoor storage and 6-inch
dunnage for outdoor storage. Do not use dunnage between
stack layers, containers have interlocking feature.
The nose end of rounds in storage must be pointed in the
direction posing the least hazard to personnel and equipment
in case of fire or accidental explosion.
Temporary shelters (tarpaulin covered, shed, etc.). Javelin
rounds may be maintained in this type of storage with storage

M98A1 NSN 1430-01-433-8019
THEORY OF OPERATION

SCOPE
Javelin is made up of the CLU and a one-time expendable
round. The CLU is manportable, reusable, battery operated,
and is the gunner's interface with the round. The CLU
provides passive day/night surveillance, target detection,
classification and recognition, battlefield damage
assessment, CLU status, built-in test (BIT), and missile
software storage capabilities. When a round is connected, the
CLU provides missile status indication, missile software
download, and launch capabilities.

CLU OPERATION
The CLU has four modes of operation: OFF, DAY, NIGHT,
and TEST. The operational modes are controlled by the
power switch.

Figure 1. Power Switch

0003 00-1
0003 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

CLU OPERATION – (Continued)


The CLU may not power up properly the first time it is turned
on. Instead of performing normally, the CLU indicators will
flash. This behavior occurs when the CLU battery is not able
to generate the voltage needed. Leaving the power switch in
DAY position for about a minute, then cycling power will
condition the battery to supply power to the CLU. The power
may have to be cycled on and off several times before the
battery is warm enough to begin normal operation.
Off Mode. Power switch is in the OFF position. In this mode,
no power is applied to the CLU. The daysight can be used for
surveillance, target detection, and recognition. The NVS
cannot be used and the gunner has no missile launch
capability.
Day Mode. Power switch is in the DAY position. In this mode,
power is applied to the CLU. The day FOV can be used to
acquire a target. The gunner has full missile launch capability.
Night Mode. Power switch is in the NIGHT position. In this
mode, NVS cooldown is initiated. NVS cooldown time is
approximately 2.5 minutes. The gunner has full missile launch
capability.
Test Mode. Power switch is placed in the TEST position,
then released. BIT can only be performed when a round is
not attached to the CLU. When a round is attached, the TEST
position is ignored. Results of BIT are displayed on the CLU
display within about 20 seconds of initiation. If a failure is
detected during BIT, the CLU BIT FAILURE 7 indicator will
light.

0003 00-2
TM 9-1425-688-10 0003 00

JAVELIN OPTICAL SYSTEMS AND FIELDS OF VIEW


Javelin is equipped with three optical systems; two in the CLU
(daysight and NVS) and one in the round (seeker). An optical
system is a series of optical elements (lenses, mirrors, filters,
etc.) that gather light at the system’s input and develop an
image at its output. In this case, the output is to the gunner.
The area of a scene that can be viewed at one time through
an optical system is the FOV.
An optical system’s FOV is related to the system’s
magnification. The wider the FOV’s coverage, the less
magnification it has. The narrower the FOV's area of
coverage, the greater magnification it has. Javelin has four
FOVs. They include: day FOV, WFOV, NFOV, and seeker
FOV. The daysight provides the day FOV. The Night Vision
Sight provides WFOV and NFOV. The seeker, found in the
missile, provides seeker FOV.
Daysight. The daysight is like a telescope. It provides day
FOV for the gunner. Day FOV is used when visibility is good.
It is also used to engage a target when the gunner cannot
wait the 2.5 minutes required for the NVS to cool down.

0003 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

JAVELIN OPTICAL SYSTEMS AND FIELDS OF VIEW –


(Continued)
Night Vision Sight. The NVS is an imaging infrared (IR)
system. It converts an infrared target into a visible target
image. This allows the gunner to see during daytime and
conditions of limited visibility. The NVS has two fields of view:
WFOV and NFOV.
Wide Field of View. The WFOV provides the gunner with a
4x magnification of the target scene. With an area of
coverage approximately 6° x 4°, WFOV covers a large or
wide area compared to NFOV. This allows the gunner to scan
a large general area to detect potential targets. However, the
gunner will not be able to distinguish target detail. As a result,
WFOV is used for surveillance and target detection.

Figure 3. Wide Field Of View

0003 00-4
TM 9-1425-688-10 0003 00

JAVELIN OPTICAL SYSTEMS AND FIELDS OF VIEW –


(Continued)
Narrow Field Of View. The NFOV provides an infrared
image with 9x magnification of the target scene. With an area
of coverage approximately 3° x 2°, NFOV covers a smaller, or
narrower, area of the scene than WFOV. The gunner would
have to move the CLU back-and-forth and up-and-down in
NFOV to cover the same area as WFOV. The gunner only
uses NFOV after locating a potential target. This lets the
gunner see a potential target’s details more clearly so the
gunner can determine whether or not it’s a target. Therefore,
NFOV is used primarily to classify and recognize a target, but
it can be used for battle assessment also.

JAVELIN OPTICAL SYSTEMS AND FIELDS OF VIEW –


(Continued)
Seeker Field Of View. The seeker FOV provides an infrared
image as seen through the missile with 9x magnification of
the target scene. Images in seeker FOV are not as detailed
due to the limitations of the optics of the seeker. This FOV is
used to lock on to a target and engage it.

SEEKER OPERATION

Seeker Activation. The CLU must be attached to a round


before the seeker can be activated. Squeezing the seeker
trigger when in DAY mode of NVS mode can activate the
seeker. Once the gunner squeezes the seeker trigger, it
initializes software download from the CLU to the missile. The
seeker begins to cool down and the missile powers up, the
1 and < indicators will light up on the CLU display until
the seeker is ready for use (10-15 seconds). The CLU display
will change from either ., /, or 0 to 1. Track gates will
appear and flash, the < indicator will go out and the 2
attack indicator will come on.

Track Gate Adjustments. The gunner uses track gates to


lock the seeker onto the target. Track gates are adjusted
using the GATE ADJ/CTRS & BRT switch. Track gate
adjustments can only be done after seeker activation and
prior to lock-on.

0003 00-9
0003 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

MISSILE OPERATION

Missile Attack Modes. The Javelin can kill a target at two


thousand meters. In addition, the missile has two gunner-
selectable attack modes (top or direct). Each mode has its
own peculiar flight path or "profile" for reaching the target.
Top Attack Mode. In top attack, the missile comes from
above the target to impact and detonate on top of the target.
This capability allows you to attack a vehicle from the front,
the rear or a flank position. Generally, armored vehicles have
less protective armor on top. By striking the top of the vehicle,
the missile penetrates the vehicle and still has enough
explosive force remaining to do extensive damage inside the
target vehicle. This mode greatly increases the probability of
a kill.
Top attack is the default missile mode when the seeker is first
activated. The exact profile of the missile during flight
depends on range to the target and is determined
automatically by the missile on-board software.
If the target is under a protective structure, using top attack
may cause the missile to impact and detonate on the
structure instead of the target. To avoid this, the missile can
be programmed for direct attack.

Figure 9. Top Attack Mode and Flight Paths

0003 00-10
TM 9-1425-688-10 0003 00

MISSILE OPERATION – (Continued)

Direct Attack Mode. In the direct attack mode, the missile


impacts and detonates on the side of the vehicle. The direct
attack mode flight allows the missile to reach a target that is
under a protective structure at a maximum range of 2000
meters. To do this, the missile flies a more direct route from
the gunner to the target vehicle. Direct attack can be selected
only after the seeker is activated when the gunner pushes the
ATTK SEL switch on the right handgrip. As in top attack, the
exact profile of the missile flight path depends on the range to
the target.

TARGET ENGAGEABILITY

TARGET ENGAGEABILITY
The gunner uses the stadia in CLU display to determine if a
target is in-range of the Javelin missile. The stadia are based
on the size of an average main battle tank – approximately
10-feet wide and 20-feet long. A tank approximately 20 feet (6
meters) in length, when seen in a flank aspect, bridges the
gap between the stadia at the Javelin's maximum range
(2,000 meters), exceeds the stadia at closer ranges, and
does not bridge the stadia at longer ranges. An approaching
or retreating tank (front or rear aspect) is approximately 10
feet (3 meters) wide, and bridges half the stadia gap at
maximum range. The turret of the main battle tank is
approximately 10 feet (3 meters) in length and width and is
judged in the same way as a front/rear target. Two different
stadia methods are used to determine if targets are in-range.
The stadia method used is based upon target aspect. The
two methods are full-stadia and half-stadia.

FULL-STADIA METHOD

The full-stadia method uses the full distance between the


stadia to determine if a target is in-range. The full-stadia
method is applied equally for the day FOV, WFOV, and
NFOV stadia.

Day FOV Stadia. The full distance between the day


FOV stadia is represented by the day FOV upper stadia.
Apply the day FOV full-stadia method as follows:

0007 00-1
0007 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

FULL-STADIA METHOD – (Continued)

1. Move the day FOV upper stadia to the target,


keeping the target between the day FOV upper
stadia.

Figure 1. Day FOV Upper Stadia

2. Place one side of the day FOV upper stadia on one


edge of the target. If the opposite edge of the target
touches or exceeds the other side of the day FOV
upper stadia, the target is in-range.

Figure 2. Day FOV In-Range Target

0007 00-2
TM 9-1425-688-10 0007 00

FULL-STADIA METHOD – (Continued)

3. If the opposite edge of the target does not touch or


exceed the other side of the day FOV upper stadia,
the target is out-of-range.

HALF-STADIA METHOD

Figure 10. Day FOV Lower Stadia

The half-stadia method uses half the distance between the


stadia to determine if a target is in-range. The half-stadia
method is applied differently for the day FOV, WFOV, and
NFOV stadia.

Day FOV Stadia. Half the distance between the day


FOV stadia is represented by day FOV lower stadia.
Apply the day FOV half-stadia method as follows:
1. Move the day FOV lower stadia to the target,
keeping the target between the day FOV lower
stadia.

OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS

SCOPE
The procedures in this work package will be used when
operating Javelin under unusual conditions.

NOTE
CLU indicators may flash on and off during initial
power up. This indicates that the battery needs
time to warm up before CLU can power up
properly. Power the CLU in the DAY position for
30 to 60 seconds. Turn power switch to the OFF
position, then back to the DAY position. If
indicators continue to flash, repeat the process.

OPERATION IN COLD WEATHER


To maintain operating efficiency under these conditions,
perform the following procedures:

NOTE
Extreme changes from cold to warm areas, such
as moving the equipment from the cold into a
heated area may cause condensation to form,
particularly on lenses.

1. When a cold CLU is brought into a warm area, allow


equipment to reach room temperature before
cleaning lenses.

0013 00-1
0013 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

OPERATION IN COLD WEATHER – (Continued)

CAUTION
Use extreme care when removing condensation
from lenses to avoid scratching.

2. Use gentle wiping motions with lens paper (Item 12,


WP 0021 00) to wipe off condensation before putting
CLU into operation.
3. When ice has accumulated on CLU housing or
optical lenses, deice as follows:

NOTE
An oil film will be left on lenses cleaned with an oil
based deicing fluid. Use only approved non-oil
based deicing fluid to deice the CLU.

a. Apply isopropyl alcohol (Item 8, WP 0021 00) or


approved deicing fluid (Item 9, WP 0021 00) on
areas of ice accumulation.
b. Allow solution to soak for approximately one
minute.
c. If ice accumulation was on lenses, clean lenses
(WP 0011 00). If ice accumulation was on CLU
housing, wipe off condensation before putting
equipment into operation.

0013 00-2
TM 9-1425-688-10 0013 00

OPERATION IN TROPICAL CLIMATE


To maintain operating efficiency under these conditions
perform the following procedures:

NOTE

• In tropical climates moisture conditions are


more acute than normal. Ventilation in closed
areas is usually very poor, and high humidity
can cause condensation to form on equipment.
• The CLU battery will discharge in about 30
minutes when used at temperatures over 120˚F
(49˚C).
• The NVS cooldown time can take about 3.5
minutes when used at temperatures over 120˚F
(49˚C).

1. When equipment is brought into an area of high


humidity, allow equipment to reach room temperature
before cleaning equipment.

CAUTION
Use extreme care when removing condensation
from lenses to avoid scratching.
2. Use gentle motions with lens paper (Item 12,
WP 0021 00) to remove any condensation from
equipment.
3. Inspect Javelin connectors and clean as necessary
before making connections (WP 0011 00).
4. Turn electrical equipment on once a day to eliminate
moisture.

0013 00-3
0013 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

OPERATION IN DESERT CLIMATE


To help keep foreign particles out of the equipment, perform
the following procedures:

CAUTION
Foreign particles in connectors may cause faulty
operation. Keep foreign particles such as sand,
dust or dirt out of the equipment.

NOTE
• The CLU battery will discharge in about 30
minutes when used at temperatures over 120˚F
(49˚C).
• The NVS cooldown time could take
approximately 3.5 minutes when used at
temperatures over 120˚F (49˚C).

1. Make operating areas as dust-proof as possible using


available materials.
2. When equipment is not in use, keep lens covers
closed and protective covers on connectors. Keep
CLU stored in carry bag.
3. Wipe off accumulated sand on equipment cases and
other painted surfaces. Clean CLU lenses, CLU
interface connector, and round interface connector
(WP 0011 00).

TARGET ENGAGEMENT DURING LIMITED


VISIBILITY CONDITIONS

Limited visibility conditions, such as smoke, flares, burning


vehicles and or debris, may exist in a gunners sector of fire.
Use the following rules when engaging targets under limited
visibility conditions:

Smoke
When smoke is visible on the battlefield, the gunner’s ability
to engage targets in DAY mode of operation is limited.
Operation in NVS NFOV or WFOV is recommended when
engaging targets in a smoky battlefield environment. If the
target enters in a dense cloud of smoke and the tactical
situation permits, break lock and wait until the target clears
the smoke before continuing the engagement sequence. If
other targets are in the sector of fire, break lock and engage
other targets.

Flares, Burning Vehicles and/or Debris


Flares, burning vehicles, and or debris may emit a large
amount of infrared (IR) clutter. When flares, burning vehicles
and or debris are visible on the battlefield and the target is
approaching an area of IR clutter, break lock and allow the
target to travel past the IR clutter area before continuing the
engagement sequence. If other targets are in the sector of
fire, break lock and engage other targets.

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Lock-On Quality
Lock-on quality is important because it affects the accuracy of
the missile. Seeker Lock-on Quality lists lock-on problems
along with meaning, effect, and action to be taken during a
mission.
If the seeker does not lock-on, the problem may be that the
track gates are adjusted too large, too small, or they are not
centered on the target when lock-on was commanded.

Track Gates Too Large


When the track gates are too large, they include part of the
surrounding terrain. This is undesirable in that the seeker
may lose the target during missile flight and impact on the
"ground" part of the target, instead of the "vehicle" part of the
target. If the track gates are too large, the gunner should
break-lock, adjust the track gates so that they are smaller,
and relock-on to the target. The gunner may try repositioning
the track gates about the target and attempt lock-on, again.
This should be done until a good lock-on is achieved.

Figure 10. Poor Lock-Too Large and Acceptable Lock

0015 00-21
0015 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Track Gates Too Small


When the track gates are too small, the track gates only
surround a portion of the target instead of the complete
target. If the track gates are too small, the gunner should
break-lock, adjust the track gates so that they are larger, and
relock onto the target. The gunner may also try repositioning
the track gates about the target and attempt lock-on, again.
This should be done until a good lock-on is achieved.

TM 9-1425-688-10 0015 00

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Unstable Track Gates


If the track gates seem to jump from one position to another
at lock-on (unstable), the seeker does not have a good lock
on the target. This is caused by some object in the track
gates that may not be seen by the gunner. However, the
seeker can see the object and is trying to incorporate it into
the lock-on solution. The gunner should break-lock, decrease
the size of the track gates, and attempt to lock-on to the
target again.

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Break-Lock and Corrective Actions


A break-lock occurs after lock-on when the seeker crosshairs
and the tracker gate flash. A break-lock situation can occur
under one of the following situations: Seeker trigger release,
target reaches cover, failure to maintain tracking rate, and
target enters IR clutter. Break-lock lists these conditions
along with meaning, effect, and action to be taken during a
mission.
Release of Seeker Trigger. If the gunner releases the
seeker trigger after lock-on is achieved either by accident or
on purpose and before missile launch, then break-lock will
occur.

0015 00-25
0015 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Target Reaches Cover. Break-lock can also occur when the


target disappears from the seeker FOV and goes behind an
object or a terrain feature (i.e., hill, woods, buildings, etc.).
• If the target does not reappear then the gunner must
re-acquire a new target before expiration of the BCU,
or terminate engagement.

Figure 13. Target Reaches Cover

0015 00-26
TM 9-1425-688-10 0015 00

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Failure to Maintain Tracking Rate

• If the gunner allows the crosshairs to move off the


target (outside the track gates), the crosshairs start to
flash. The gunner must move the crosshairs back on
the target (inside the track gates).

Figure 15. Maintaining Tracking Rate

0015 00-28
TM 9-1425-688-10 0015 00

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

• If the gunner does not maintain his tracking rate and


allows the crosshairs to move even further off the
target (outside the track gates) both the crosshairs
and track gates start to flash and break-lock occurs.

TROUBLESHOOTING – (Continued)

Infrared Clutter
Infrared (IR) clutter is defined as a scene where the
surrounding area or background radiates as much heat or
more heat than the target itself. This results in the target
being washed out or undetectable with Javelin system. IR
clutter may be natural or man made. When the target enters
an area containing high IR clutter, the gunner may have to
attempt to lock-on to the target with smaller track gates or
wait for the target to leave the IR clutter area before he can
lock onto the target. The seeker may also break-lock due to
the lack of temperature variations or if the background is
hotter than the target.

INTRODUCTION TO PREVENTIVE
MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES

SCOPE

Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are


scheduled maintenance actions used to make sure that the
Javelin is ready for operation at all times. Inspect the Javelin
regularly and carefully so that you can find any defects and
correct them. Follow these rules when performing PMCS:

Before and After Operation. Always keep the following rules


in mind when performing PMCS procedures.

Before you operate. Always keep in mind the


WARNINGS and CAUTIONS. Perform your BEFORE
(B) PMCS prior to the equipment being removed from
its company area or performing its intended mission.

After you operate. Always keep in mind the


WARNINGS and CAUTIONS. Be sure to perform your
AFTER (A) PMCS after the equipment has been taken
out of its mission mode or returned to its company
area.

If Your Equipment Malfunctions. Follow the malfunction


procedures as prescribed in WP 0015 00. Report deficiencies
on DA form 2404 (Army) or NAVMC form 10245 (Marine
Corps).

0016 00-1
0016 00 TM 9-1425-688-10

Whenever Necessary. Perform routine checks. The following


checks and services should be performed whenever you see
that they are necessary:
• Check for loose screws, nuts, and bolts.
• Cover unused receptacles.
• Check for frayed cables.
• Store items not in use.

If Your Equipment is Reported Not Ready. Do not attempt


to operate the equipment unless otherwise directed.

Purpose of the PMCS Table. Your Preventive Maintenance


Checks and Services table lists the inspections and care of
your equipment required to keep it in good operating
condition.

Purpose of Item Number Column. This column is used as a


source for item numbers for the “TM Number” column on DA
Form 2404, Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Work
Sheet, in recording results of the PMCS.

Purpose of the Service Intervals Column. The interval


column of the PMCS table tells you when to do a certain
check or service. The columns headed “B” and “A” contain
a bullet (•) opposite the appropriate check. For example, if a
given check is performed before operation, a bullet will be
opposite the check in the “B” column; if the check is
accomplished after the operation, a bullet will be in the
column headed “A” and if the same check is made at all
intervals, a bullet will be in each applicable column.

0016 00-2
TM 9-1425-688-10 0016 00

Purpose of the Item to be Inspected/Procedures Column.


The procedure column of the PMCS table tells you how to do
the required checks and services. Carefully follow these
instructions. The items to be inspected and the procedures
are listed in the same column; the procedures are indented.
Major groups are listed in all-capital, bold letters. The items
within each group are listed in lower-case, bold letters. The
procedures are a brief description of the procedure by which
the check is to be performed. Illustrations are integrated
within the procedures. The procedures contain all the
information required to accomplish the checks and services.

Equipment is not Ready/Available if: Procedures Column.


This column tells you when and why your equipment cannot
be used. Entries in this column are keyed specifically to
checks listed in the “procedure” column for the purpose of
identifying, for the check, the criteria that will cause the
equipment to be classified as not ready/available because of
an inability to perform its primary mission. An entry in this
column will:

• Identify conditions that make the equipment not


ready/available.
• Deny use of the equipment until corrective
maintenance has been performed.

0016 00-3
