advanced gunnery training system

Definition/Scope: (PEOSTRI) The Abrams advanced gunnery training system (AGTS) is a family of gunnery training simulators for vehicle commander/gunner teams for M1A2 System Enhanced Package (SEP), M1A2, M1A1, M1A1 SA, M1A1 FEP, LAV-25 vehicles. It is rapidly transportable and deployable and features a high-fidelity crew compartment replicating the vehicle’s turret and fire control system in both physical and functional aspects. The AGTS presents the vehicle commander and gunner with a full range of simulated engagement situations. The system trains both fully operational and degraded-mode gunnery techniques under a wide variety of conditions. The pre-programmed computer-controlled exercises vary in target type and number, range, vehicle and target motion, and visibility. The AGTS-based systems are capable of networking to provide section, platoon and company collective gunnery training. A pre-brief After Action Review (AAR) capability is provided for exercise management and conducting AARs.OLD VERSION State-of-the-art simulation device used to train gunners and commanders of the Abrams Main Battle Tank, Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and the Light Armored Vehicle.
