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 Pop-Up Target System PTS component of RTS. All relevant operations and maintenance procedures are discussed, along with a detailed description of the Pop-Up Target System, PTS power and environmental requirements, necessary test equipment, and important safety considerations. This PTS reference manual is Annex 1 to the separately published RTS Operations Manual, ADA230095.
