Riptide Live TrainingLive Training - Force on Target
Targetry Range Automated Control and Recording (TRACR)
TRACR provides a single common target control system for all Army targets and ranges identified in Training Circular 25-8 with a common look and feel and an integrated Graphical User Interface in accordance with the LT2 Style Guide and in compliance with the Common Training Instrumentation Architecture. The single target control system controls legacy targets (RETS/ERETS), Future Army System of Integrated Targets (FASIT) targets, and allows for legacy commercial-off- the-shelf system adapter integration (via standard interface documentation to allow industry to create their own interfaces and/or adapters).
Description & Capabilities
The TRACR system is a software application that supports the planning, execution and review of scenario-based training at non-instrumented Army training ranges. TRACR allows users to develop automated target control scenarios that support time and event-based target control, as well as triggering via manual control. TRACR permits the user to control the training exercise via prepared scenarios or manual overrides. TRACR collects target engagement statistics and assists the user with the generation and presentation of after action review material. Currently, the TRACR system can be utilized on all live-fire training ranges, from the small arms, lane-based ranges up to large maneuver ranges such as the Multipurpose Range Complex (MPRC). TRACR is a proven replacement for the existing Enhanced Remote Equipment Target System (ERETS) control system and is compatible with FASIT compliant targets.
The TRACR suite provides modular software components to extend capabilities to include score sheets and After Action Review functions (HTML and PowerPoint based), Common Player Unit Gateway support, Situational Awareness, and embedded functions to support the LT2 Video SOA. The TRACR suite has been updated to provide legacy COTS target integration and support for both Meggitt and Saab based range systems.
UOTS provides state-of-the-art urban training facilities capable of training today's Soldiers in a realistic urban environment to ensure Soldiers are prepared to conduct full-spectrum operations in any urban environment. This system monitors and controls the training exercise, processes, and displays and analyzes collected exercise data, prepares and presents standardized training performance feedback, and archives training performance information for external use.
The Digital Range Training Systems (DRTS)
The Digital Range Training Systems (DRTS) provides the training structure for instrumented ranges incorporating digital information systems. DRTS provides the infrastructure for Abrams, Bradley and Stryker live-fire gunnery qualifications.
DRTS training systems replaces obsolete, inadequate training methods and equipment in order to stimulate new weapon systems, stress Warfighters, incorporate the Digitized Force, and provide enhanced training data collection and After Action Review (AAR) capabilities.
In addition DRTS incorporates digital system training as well as integrate multiple ranges and training environments for the training units. DRTS also offers scalable range systems that are designed based on needs and funding capabilities.
Riptide is central to the development of DRTS exercise control and system control.
