ARENA Rangeless Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) Debriefing System Commonly Called


"ADS adds increased training efficiency and effectiveness for operational users"

ADS offers an affordable and proven combination of rangeless, training / debriefing to improve overall operational effectiveness. ADS can be used for single ship transition training, or is effective for multi-ship (virtually unlimited number of participants) tactics training in air-to-air and air-to-surface mission scenarios. ADS was recently flight tested at the USAF Flight Test Center at Edwards Air Force Base, California with successful results.

Rangeless Training

ADS is a proven rangeless ACMI training/debriefing system. ADS replaces cumbersome, expensive fixed ground ranges and tracking antennas, with differential GPS (Global Positioning System), allowing accurate, fast determination of self-location via satellite. ADS can fly

Anywhere in the world, on any training or combat aircraft.

ADS has been flight-tested on both commercial and military aircraft and was successfully fight- tested on two F-16s in combat maneuvers.

Single or Multiple Participation

ADS enables GPS precise, affordable basic and advanced pilot training to include: Transition Maneuvers, Air-to-Air, Air-to-Surface missions. ADS provides PC-based debriefing at squadron level. The ADS Flight Reconstruction System provides the aircraft industry's first low-cost approach to providing immediate post-flight reconstruction of flight dynamics and missile and bomb flyouts using a single GPS receiver and ARENA software processing. No expensive carriage pods or training missiles are required. In addition to standard GPS outputs of position, heading, velocity and time ADS provides information such as pitch, roll, body axis yaw, G-loading, angle of attack, rate of climb, and engine status. When combined together highly accurate flight reconstruction is possible. ADS sophisticated post-processing software provides the user with a realistic image of his aircraft in flight. An external view of the aircraft from any perspective (Gods-Eye) or an out-the-cockpit view with aircraft data display that is presented on the PC-based debrief station. Multiple users may combine data from up to 32 aircraft for mission scenario reconstruction in a dense training or combat environment. With extensive flight testing in military and light aircraft, ADS has proven itself accurate during high "G" maneuvering.

GPS Data Recorder

The GPS data recorder is portable. It may be hand carried or installed permanently in the aircraft.
