Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is
known for innovation, design, quality and production
of superb tactical training products for warfighters.
SAIC delivers cutting-edge solutions to respond to your
training challenges f r o m basic Multiple Integrated
Laser Engagement System (MILES) components to the
most recent MILES variant, the Combat Vehicle System
(CVS), and exciting, emerging efforts like One Tactical
Engagement Simulation System (OneTESS), Operational
Test -Tactical Engagement System (OT-TES) and
geometric-bearing (GB) systems.
Here are some of our innovations that provide future i
capabilities today:
Wireless Systems
Wireless systems are easy to install and adaptable to the
user. Wireless means there are no cables that can be

Common Components and Interoperability
Common components and interoperability throughout
SAIC's dismounted and mounted systems allow you to
combine capabilities of different wireless components
to fit unique training needs. This lowers production
costs and provides the opportunity to procure more
systems to support your training objectives.
Driving this technology is a powerful base of
experienced professionals. SAIC technical personnel
have been involved in virtually all generations of MILES
fielded today. SAIC engineers hold a number of patents
in the tactical engagement system field and are soughtafter experts in the industry.

replaces the burden of previous, cumbersome products.
This helps save valuable installation time and provides

Lightweight, Low-Power Components

seP

Lightweight, low-power components minimize
interference with training and weapon systems,
especially for the dismounted warfighter. This enables
you to train as you fight. SAIC replaces the heavy,
outdated equipment and batteries of the past
significantly ease the warfighter's load. This enables
tough, realistic training without distracting cables and
harnesses of past systems. Batteries recharge on the go,
using embedded solar panels or vehicle battery power.

Individual Weapon System (IWS)

SAIC's fifth generation, wireless, IWS lightweight design provides maximpm flexibility
and adaptability to the warfighter during training. IWS is lightweight, small and lowpower, making it one of the lightest individual live instrumentation systems fielded to
date. The total weight of the small arms transmitter (SAT), wireless user interface (WUI)
and wireless detector is less than 0.5 kilogram.
IWS supports individual and crew-served weapons configured to fire the NATO
5.56mnn, NATO 7.62mm, .50 CAL, AK 7.62mm, 5.45mm and 12.7mm ammunition
types.

targets, such as bridges and buildings, with a highfidelity detection system for real-time casualty
assessment in a MILES-based live training environment
or combat training center.
,TVS is software-adaptable to support the full range of
tracked and wheeled logistics, utility and light armored
vehicles in service today.

Features include the following:
Eighty externally programmable vehicle types and
probability of kill (PK) tables
• Proven instrumentation interface-compliant at all
three Army Combat Training Centers
• PMT 90-S002 MILES Communication Code (MCC)
standard-compliant
• Liquid crystal display (LCD), membrane switch panel
and audio speaker for ease of user interface

With an increased focus on security operations, combat
in urban terrain and close quarters combat, today's
warfighting environment has made the personal c
sidearm a key component of the individual warfighter'
equipment. These weapons demand a high level of
skills in target identification, rapid decision-making and
precision during engagement. This capability allows the
warfighter to train and exercise the full range of force
options in a realistic live training environment.
The SAIC Mini MILES product line can be quickly fitted
to a warfighters standard issue service 'sidearm. Our
in-barrel conversion kit provides a MILES firing solution
without weapon modification and yet retains all of
the normal soldier-to-weapon procedures, from target
identification and engagement to ammunition reload.
The SAIC Mini MILES can be used dry fire or with a
special blank round uniquely adapted to provide the
tactile and auditory cues of small arms engagements.
The Mini MILES device fits into a barrel insert and is fully
interoperable with legacy and existing MILES and WES
systems and seamlessly integrates with existing training
ranges or systems.

Air Defense Weapons Systems (ADWS) MILES Kits

The ADWS MILES expands force-on-force live training
capability and fidelity from infantry-based and
armor-based exercises to the inclusion of simulated
air defense engagements—ground to air, and air to
ground. The ADWS provides an adaptable, wireless,
tactical engagement and instrumentation system for
contemporary air defense weapons manufactured
domestically and internationally
The ADWS delivers a high-fidelity detection system for
,real-time shot assessment in MILES-based live training
environments or combat training centers across the
globe. Through its modular design, the ADWS is an
interoperable solution that simulates the firing and
actual effects of a variety of air defense weapons in
both contemporary and older MILES-based technology
environments and combat training centers (CICs).
The ADWS provides MILES kits for the following air
defense weapons systems:
