To provide modern digitally-instrumented ranges capable of training evaluating and stressing todayís Soldiers and their modern equipment in a realistic train-as-you-fight environment.
The Instrumented Ranges/Digital Range Training System (IR/DRTS) program is the enabler of range modernization for tactical vehicle training. IR/DRTS provides the infrastructure and instrumentation for Abrams, Bradley, Stryker, and , Aviation platform live-fire gunnery training and qualifications, and the ability to conduct Combined Live Fire Exercises (CALFEX). IR/DRTS facilitates individual, collective live-fire training and qualification per Training Circular 25-8 with enhanced training data collection and After Action Review (AAR) capabilities. IR/DRTS addresses emerging doctrinal requirements and enables new training techniques. IR/DRTS addresses the need to replace aging live-fire training infrastructures with a modern suite of digital capabilities. These training systems replace obsolete, inadequate training methods and equipment in order to stimulate new weapon systems, stress Soldiers, incorporate the Digitized Force, and provide enhanced training data collection and AAR capabilities. The instrumented ranges utilize all available combat systemís capabilities and digitally integrate them to manage forces undergoing individual and collective live-fire training and qualification exercises.
