To provide a single common target controller for all Army targets and ranges identified in Training Circular 25-8 Ranges with a common look and feel and an integrated Graphical User Interface in accordance with the LT2 style guide and in compliance with the Common Training Instrumentation Architecture. The single target controller controls legacy targets (RETS/ERETS) and FASIT targets and allows for commercial-off-the-shelf system integration (via standard interface documentation to allow industry to create their own interfaces and/or adapters).
The TRACR system is a software application that supports the planning, execution and review of scenario-based training at non-instrumented Army training ranges. TRACR allows users to develop and prepare automated target control scenarios that support time and event-based target control as well as triggering via manual control. TRACR permits the user to control the training scenarios via scenario or manual overrides and control. TRACR also collects target engagement statistics and assists the user with the generation and presentation of After Action Review (AAR) material. Currently, the TRACR system can be utilized on all live-fire training ranges, from the small arms, lane-based versions up to large maneuver ranges such as Multipurpose Range Complex (MPRC). TRACR is a proven replacement for the existing Enhanced Remote Equipment Target System (ERETS) control system and is also compatible with FASIT-compliant targets. The TRACR suite provides modular software components to extend capabilities to include score sheets and AAR functions (HTML and PowerPoint-based), Common Player Unit Gateway support, Situational Awareness and embedded functions to support the LT2 Video SOA. The TRACR suite has been updated to provide legacy COTS target integration and support for both Meggitt and Saab-based range systems.
