Aerial target simulator IVTs-M1

Aerial Target Simulator ATS-M1

The ATS-M1 Aerial Target Simulator is intended for training combat crews of close-in and short range air defense missile systems of the brigade (regiment), battalion and army corps levels in the Air Defense Forces, Air Force and Navy when conducting live firings against simulated contemporary and advanced aerial targets as well as for testing and refining air defense missile systems under development.

The ATS-M1 Aerial Target Simulator is mounted in place of the standard warhead of the 9М28Д (9М22У) rocket of the "Grad-1" salvo system.

The ATS-M1 Aerial Target Simulator's technical characteristics enable simulating modern small-size, high-speed air attack assets.

The ATS-M1 Aerial Target Simulator allows simulating air targets in the radar band of 2-4 cm.

In accordance with the Republic of Belarus' Defense Minister's order No 825 dated 06.11.2002 the ATS-M1 Aerial Target Simulator was adopted for service with the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus.
