P5 Combat Training System/Tactical Combat Training System (CTS/TCTS)
The P5 CTS/TCTS is the program of record air combat training system for the U.S. Air Force plus many allied air forces.
The system allows the U.S. Marines, Navy and Air Force to train on a common platform with coalition partners. It sets the standard for joint, multiservice and coalition training.
P5 CTS/TCTS has been delivered to more than 30 ranges worldwide. This system is comprised of easily transportable components with advanced security features, real-time weapons simulations and live monitoring functions.
P5 CTS/TCTS incorporates a long-range datalink to continuously transmit and receive the Time, Space, Position Information (TSPI) of each aircraft during the exercise and to send Real-Time Kill Notifications (RTKN) to the aircrew via synthesized voice communications. The system can be used in tethered/range operations for monitoring and managing the exercise on the ground or at sea aboard aircraft carriers.
In addition, the P5 system can also be used without ground stations for untethered/range-less operations, allowing pilots to train “anywhere, anytime.” Either approach provides realistic, real-time training for air-to-air, air-to-ground and surface-to-air combat training missions.
