INSTRUMENTABLE-MULTIPLE INTEGRATED LASER ENGAGEMENT SYSTEM COMBAT VEHICLE TACTICAL ENGAGEMENT SIMULATION SYSTEM (I-MILES CVTESS)

PM TRADE

Mission

To simulate both the firing capabilities and the vulnerability of the vehicle as well as to serve as a means to objectively assess weapon effects during training. To provide unit commanders an integrated training system for use at home station local training areas and instrumented training areas. To replace Basic MILES, M2000 and MXXI target systems and field in accordance with the Army-wide distribution plan.

Description

Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Combat Vehicle Tactical Engagement Simulation System (I-MILES CVTESS) is a laser-based training device to be used on Abrams, Bradley, and Opposing Forces (OPFOR) tanks and fighting vehicles to provide real time casualty effects. It is an evolutionary approach for replacing older CVS systems equipment currently used in force-on-force training exercises with devices that provide better training fidelity for combat vehicle systems. It will reinforce crew duties, reward proper engagement techniques and develop tactical maneuver skills of armor and mechanized infantry combined arms teams up to brigade level. It provides unit commanders an integrated training system in force-on-force and force-on-target training events at home station training areas through instrumented training. The system interfaces with instrumentation systems at Combat Training Centers (CTC). The I-MILES CVTESS modular design will accommodate new weapons, ammunition and vehicle types. The U.S. Army will use and field I-MILES CVTESS worldwide in all geographical areas.
