Abstract:

Range Target System RTS is a high-fidelity engagement simulator. Short Range Air Defense SHORAD and Forward Area Air Defense System FAADS crews employ their actual weapons in simulated or live fire engagement of sub- scale, 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 put in place 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, along with a detailed description of the Flying Target System major components aircraft, aircraft communications, voice communications mobile launcher, and ground support equipment, as well as a complete listing of needed tools and spare parts. This FTS reference manual is Annex 2 to the separately published RTS Operational Manual.
