Air Combat Training

Preparing air combat pilots for real world conflict.

In today’s threat filled world, militaries are relying on training and simulation to prepare their forces. Leonardo DRS’ Air Combat Training Systems (ACTS) draws on more than 60 years of innovation in the development of training systems to prepare pilots for combat.  

Our training and simulation solutions are proven in their effectiveness and have been delivered to military customers worldwide. Leonardo DRS has successfully supported coalition training for the U.S. and allied forces in Europe, The Middle East and Asia.

As the world’s premier supplier of high-tech, air combat training technologies, Leonardo DRS offers low-risk solutions that exceed customer requirements. We provide air forces the ability to autonomously test and train anywhere and anytime with proven, reliable, range-less capabilities. Our hardware includes both airborne and ground based systems to simulate real combat. Training with both ground constructive threats and air constructive threats massively increases operational realism and adds depth to exercises.

These ground and air systems have more network capacity than previous models and allow for autonomous and tethered operations. Low support cost and future upgradeability make Leonardo DRS air combat training easy to integrate. The equipment is compatible with a variety of platforms, from the F-16 A/B to the UH-1Y. Training missions can even be configured in flight and creates more effective and efficient training missions.
