Abstract : The Multiple-Station Range Target System (RTS) is a high-fidelity engagement simulator. Using RTS, Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) and Forward Area Air Defense System (FAADS) crews employ their actual weapons in simulated or live-fire engagement of subscale, fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. RTS permits training and evaluation of individuals, crews, and platoons; provides detailed crew performance scoring and feedback; and can be moved from one location to another and rapidly deployed for a new training exercise or test application. This reference manual describes the Flying Target System (FTS) component of RTS. All relevant operations and maintenance procedures--are discussed, and a detailed description of the major components of the Flying Target System (aircraft, aircraft communications, voice communications, mobile launcher, and ground support equipment) and a complete listing of needed tools and spare parts is provided. This FTS reference manual is Annex 2 to the separately published Multiple-Station Range Target System Operations Manual. Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD), Subscale aircraft, Engagement simulation, Forward Area Air Defense (FAAD).
