Range Safety

Range safety

AIRtec’s range safety services ensure clear test range areas for exercises involving live fire, rocketry or other hazardous events.

AIRtec safely and efficiently eliminates range safety concerns, while simultaneously providing mission flexibility during complex range scenarios.

AIRtec’s range clearing platforms efficiently use maritime radar and EO/IR surveillance to provide reliable range imagery.  Our platforms are equipped to relay AIS information over-the-horizon to identify and track small targets, and use AUTOCAT to communicate directives to potentially conflicting surface traffic. Satellite data link (Iridium) and accompanying portable, PC-based ground stations are used for additional range safety support.

AIRtec also utilizes reliable and redundant technology for flight termination; we can also provide rapid recovery of downed assets.

Our range safety past performance includes:
– Ongoing range safety for Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division.

– Range safety missions for NASA, Wallops.
– Maritime Radar Surveillance, Range Clearing & AUTOCAT for the Atlantic Test Range, Pt. Mugu and Fleet Forces Atlantic Exercise Coordination Center (FFAECC)
