MTS receives missile test set orders

16th September 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marvin Test Solutions (MTS) has received orders for multiple MTS-206 Field Test Sets, the company announced on 14 September.

The MTS-206 is a portable test set for AGM-65 Maverick missiles, missile sections, launchers, and clusters. The MTS-206-2 adds test capabilities for the AGM-114 Hellfire missile.

The MTS-206 replaces several test sets including TTU-519, AN/DSM-157, AN/DSM-100, and AN/DSM-99, and operates with obsolete target simulators as well as with the MTS-916 modular target simulator.

Steve Sargeant, chief executive officer of Marvin Test Solutions, said: ‘Based on the proven architecture of the MTS-207 ruggedised field test set, the MTS-206 provides all of the capabilities that maintainers require to ensure the performance, safe operation, and mission readiness of these complex systems.’

The MTS-206 family of testers hs been deployed in 17 countries since 2004. The set is controlled by an integrated LCD display and touch screen from distances of up to 25ft. The modular PXI chassis is secured via five shock absorbers to enable the MTS-206 to meet stringent shock and vibration requirements. Built-in heaters for the PXI chassis and the display and control unit allow the MTS-206 to operate in extremely low temperatures.
