Mission

Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapon System 2 (I-MILES IWS 2) - Simulate both the firing capabilities and the vulnerability of soldiers as well as a means to objectively assess weapon effects during training; to provide unit commanders an integrated training system for use at Home Station and Combat Training Centers. IWS 2 is compatible and interoperable with the fielded MILES family of training devices and will replace basic MILES target systems at Home Stations and Combat Training Centers (CTCs) Army-wide in accordance with the Basis of Issue distribution plan as the next generation of IWS.

Description

Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System Individual Weapons System 2 (I-MILES IWS 2) is a man-worn system, providing real time casualty effects necessary for tactical engagement training in direct fire force-on-force and instrumented training scenarios (Home Station Instrumentation Training System – HITS and Maneuver Combat Training Centers - MCTCs).  Use of the system, from squad thru brigade level exercises, reinforces good tactical maneuver skills by training Soldiers how to avoid being shot, as well as rewarding good target engagement ability.  The IWS 2 kit is comprised of an individual body harness and helmet halo for target vulnerability on Soldiers and an unobtrusive Small Arms Transmitter (SAT) that mounts on a Soldier’s weapon to replicate weapon range and effects. Event data can be downloaded for use in a stand-alone or instrumented After Action Review (AAR) and training assessment. The IWS 2 replaces Basic and MILES 2000 man-worn systems at home stations and instrumented sites Army-wide in accordance with the I-MILES Basis of Issue (BOI).
