Digital Range Training System


The Digital Range Training System (DRTS) provides an immersive training environment for all vehicle crews. Training includes Abrams, Bradley and Stryker operations and dismount integration.

During training exercises, DRTS provides realistic threat, neutral and friendly simulations. Soldiers’ decisions and movements are captured through audio, video and digital technologies. The system analyzes the exercise and develops an interactive after-action-review with a single click.

DRTS ranges include:

Facilities – Range operations centers, after-action-review theaters and battle position facades, including buildings and trenches

Hardware – Digital interface, cameras, data recording equipment and targetry systems with audiovisual effects

Software – Scenario development, system control, exercise control and after-action-review production

DRTS integrates gunnery and tactical systems for individual and crew qualification and platoon-level collective training. The system also integrates Apache live fire for air-to-ground training scenarios.

Lockheed Martin designed DRTS to be flexible, building upon the Army’s Live Training Transformation standard.

Rooted in Affordability

Affordability is built into every aspect of the DRTS program. System components such as improved field cameras reduce maintenance support while added functional capabilities like the single-click after-action review, improved diagnostics and fault isolation tools simplify system operations
