Marvin Test Solutions Secures $3.2M Order for Modular Military Precision Guided Target Simulators

Maintainers Now Can Replace Multiple Obsolete Testers for Maverick, Paveway, and Hellfire Missiles With Modular MTS-916 System

Irvine, Calif. – June 10, 2014Marvin Test Solutions, a trusted provider of globally deployed innovative test solutions for military, aerospace, and manufacturing organizations today announced it garnered a $3.2M contract for its MTS-916 Modular Target Simulators from an overseas military customer. A state-of-the-art, target simulator for optically guided weapons, the MTS-916 replaces multiple obsolete target simulators for AGM-65, TGM-65 Maverick and AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and guidance sections, as well as MAU-169 Paveway target seeker kits.

“We have a long and successful history designing and developing innovative military systems to make test easy and overcome obsolescence. We used this experience to create the MTS-916 to  meet the critical need for an accurate and reliable target simulator that can reliably test the new generation of optically guided weapons and integrate seamlessly with legacy maintenance and sustainment systems,” said Major General Steve Sargeant, USAF (Ret.), and CEO of Marvin Test Solutions. “In addition to being highly sought after to replace wide-spread obsolescence in target simulators, the MTS-916 is also a cost-effective solution.”

The MTS-916 combines visible TV/CCD, infrared (IR), and laser seeker support into a rugged, compact system. Its modular design features two main subassemblies, simplifying system repair and maintenance. The MTS-916 offers maintainers a ruggedized system that meets MIL-STD-810 temperature, shock, vibration, and humidity requirements as well as MIL-STD-461 EMI specifications. It can be used for I-level and D-level maintenance and can also operate in harsh environments. Since its release, the MTS-916 has been successfully deployed globally in many countries.

MTS-916 and MTS-206 Provide a Rugged Flightline Solution
Used in conjunction with the state-of-the-art MTS-206 portable test set for the AGM-65 Maverick and AGM-114 Hellfire Missile systems, the MTS-916 target simulator delivers high reliability, offers a reduced footprint, and features better automation than the legacy test sets it replaces. The combination of the MTS-206 and MTS-916 provides a rugged flightline solution for testing, troubleshooting, and boresighting of missiles.

The MTS-916 target simulator is compatible with the legacy AN/DSM-157 guided missile test set (GMTS) and is designed to replace the manually operated AN/DSM-129 and AN/DSM-787 legacy target simulators.
