Abstract:

This document provides a detailed analysis of the MILES systems Volume I and a final hardware design disclosure Volume II of the 11 systems that comprise the current Engineering Development ED phase of MILES. The problem was to design and build a tactical training system for the U.S. Army that simulates the weapons, weapon characteristics, and weapon effects of a family of weapon systems including infantry, armor, and aircraft. The design of the initial 11 systems allows for expansion, flexibility, and compatibility with the total 1980 MILES family of weapons. The key elements of the systems are the low power pulsed laser transmitters used to simulate the weapons and the inexpensive silicon photodiode solar cell detectors used to receive the laser transmission. Audio and visual indicators display the effects of weapon fire with kill, hit, and near-miss indications. The weapons of the infantry-man or target vehicle are deactivated by the receipt of a kill signal. Author
