AIR-TO-GROUND LIVE-FIRE TRAINING
Rapidly train and assess the performance of a pilot in air-to-ground combat.
The Strafe system is completely automatic, allowing multiple pilots to be in the air at once while the Windows®-based software can record details of the pilot, aircraft call sign, aircraft type, stores and attack profile for analysis/de-brief upon landing. The system produces instantaneous results back to the control tower for relay to the pilots or for later analysis. The targets are acoustic, meaning that only supersonic projectiles will be recorded reducing errors from rubble or stones.
Both systems are designed to be accurate and to provide real-to-life environments for training pilots. By training outside, the pilots are also subjected to environmental factors that they would not be aware of when training using a simulator such as wind and straining their eyes due to the sun.
