TACTS/ACTS Worldwide Deployment

The TACTS/ACTS functionality has been expanded from a purely air-to-air environment, to include air-to-ground and surface-to-air engagements. FAAC designed and developed software to represent a fully functional Integrated Air Defense System (IADS). Many of the 14 operational ranges located worldwide have been upgraded to incorporate this feature, including the lead ranges located at NAS Fallon, Nevada, and Red Flag Measurement and Debriefing System (RFMDS) at Nellis AFB, Nevada.

The IADS environment

The IADS environment incorporates an early warning network, centralized command and control, surface-to-air missiles (SAM’s), anti-aircraft artillery (AAA), associated weapon system sensors (including radar and electro-optical modes), EA-6B support jamming and self-protection countermeasures effects on both RF and IR weapon performance, RWR device simulation, and terrain masking. The ranges accommodate scenarios for air-to-air, air-to-ground, surface-to-air, and Electronic Warfare systems involving the simultaneous operation of up to 36 high activity aircraft (plus 100 low activity aircraft), making the TACTS/ACTS ranges the most sophisticated training environments in the world. For the TACTS/ACTS ranges, FAAC has developed models of over 100 weapon systems, including 20 different threat air-to-air missiles, 25 different threat SAM/AAA systems, and 28 threat emitter types.
