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 Pop-Up Target System (PTS) component of RTS. All relevant operations and maintenance procedures are discussed, and a detailed description of the Pop-Up Target System, PTS power and environmental requirements, necessary test equipment, and important safety considerations is provided. This PTS reference manual is Annex 1 to the separately published Multiple-Station Range Target System Operations Manual.
