Government-certified and operational design

ľAV’ Flight Termination System (FTS) is a turnkey, self-contained, solid-state, fully programmable system with a flexible architecture to meet the challenges of today’s evolving test and range requirements. ľAV’ FTS is a fully redundant configuration that includes its ground-based Command Transmitter System (CTS) and custom command and control subsystems. It can concurrently provide IRIG/EFTS remote control and flight termination functions from multiple sites spread over a large geographic area via a network of fully redundant and automated transmitters. ľAV provides range safety officers (RSO) with human-machine interfaces (HMI) for mobile command and control during mission execution.
