Improved Moving Target Simulator (IMTS) (Stinger Missile Trainer)

The Stinger Missile Trainer is a 40 foot dome with projected terrain and aircraft images. The dome allows the trainees a full 360-degree surround scene and 70 degree vertical field of view. The system trains up to three gunners individually or simultaneously, to identify, acquire, and track airborne targets, and then launch a Stinger missile.

InterSense worked with EER Systems (now L-3 Com GIS) and AEgis Technologies to free the trainees from tethers and cables that where connected to training weapons.  

The designed interface sends all of the acquisition, lock, and fire data along with tracking to the IS-900 processor via the InterSense wireless link.  A custom, high accuracy, inertial-acoustic tracking station is mounted inside of the Stinger Missile tube with two holes drilled for the ultrasonic receiver microphones.  The IS-900 SoniStrips are mounted under the center projection tower to provide a 20 foot diameter tracking area.
