Air Combat Training Capabilities


High Fidelity, High Accuracy Live Simulations for Combat Air Forces

As the world’s premier provider of high-performance airborne and ground system air combat training technologies, Leonardo DRS provides air forces the capability to autonomously test and train anywhere, anytime with proven, reliable, range-less test capability.

Live, Virtual & Constructive (LVC) Training

Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) EnablerFrom an environment involving real people operating real systems, to a completely simulated environment involving imitation systems, Leonardo DRS has the Live, Virtual & Constructive (LVC) capabilities to enable a complete training solution.

Embedded Aircraft Training

Embedded TrainingLeonardo DRS and our partners work together to integrate embedded training (ET) software applications with our Live Air Combat Training products. For example, our M346 aircraft Embedded Tactical Training System (ETTS) enables ET through interoperability with the P5 Combat Training System (CTS).

Sustainment / Depot

Sustainment / DepotLeonardo DRS provides on-site or depot-level maintenance and repair of parts, assemblies, or sub-assemblies for all DRS training products.  This includes conducting engineering investigations (EIs); conducting analyses and diagnostics of failures and deficiency reports (DRs) submitted by end users; deriving corrective measures and incorporating modifications and enhancements into end items.  We are experienced in generating failure reports and implementing engineering change proposals (ECPs) for corrective measures. 

Leonardo DRS also tracks baseline changes and maintains the Government-approved system configuration for hardware and software.  During the conduct of performing diagnostics of malfunctions and failures, we are adept at component modification or alternate repairs/replacement of components that are no longer available.
