To provide objective scoring for aviation gunnery crew qualification and training.
AWSS is an objective scoring system that supports live Army aviation gunnery training. AWSS provides scoring for 2.75-inch training rockets, both point detonation and multipurpose submunitions. AWSS provides area scoring and hit location for a variety of machine gun weapons and laser scoring of the Hellfire training missile. Four systems are provided for U.S. training exercises and are deployed as needed to support home station training events. The fifth system is stationed in Grafenwoehr, Germany, and supports training both in Germany and in other European countries. The sixth system is stationed in Korea and supports Pacific theater training events. A seventh tailored system is in Camp Buehring, Kuwait. An annual scheduling conference, held in conjunction with the Aviation Master Gunnerís Conference, prepares a baseline schedule for the deployment of the U.S. systems for the following fiscal year.
