Textron Systems has unveiled a new simulation technology that is meant to help train military users to counter missile and laser threats.
The Phantom Dual Threat Emitter works to mimic the features of missile warning sensors and laser warning receivers and can operate with ground, maritime and aerial platforms, Textron said Wednesday.
The portable, rugged technology is a joint offering of Textron’s electronic systems and ESL Defence divisions.
Steve Mensh, senior vice president and general manager at Textron Systems Electronic Systems, said the business designed the system to facilitate threat defense training in the range and in the field.
According to the company, the Phantom Dual Threat Emitter is also intended to simulate pulsed laser and ultraviolet threats.
Textron offers a portfolio of systems for defense customers to test long-range aircraft survivability equipment.
