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 operations manual describes the major RTS components targets, range control station, data acquisition station, position-location station, and laser ballistics simulator, RTS set-up procedures, RTS system preparation and installation procedures, and RTS operations, maintenance, and supply. Two separately published annexes to this manual exist. Annex 1 describes the Pop-Up Target System operations and maintenance. Annex 2 describes the flying Target System operations and maintenance. These three manuals provide the maximum documentation necessary to support RTS.
