The technology currently available on aviation test and training ranges is insufficient to support current and future operational needs. The capabilities of modern, 5th Generation weapon systems have outstripped the existing range capacities. The result is a gap in the range’s ability to support proper employment, realistic operational testing & training, and ever-increasing operations security (OPSEC) requirements. To represent the growing scale and complexity of these threats, protect our employment methods, and adequately train the operational forces, a secure and flexible range construct is needed for highly capable advanced platforms with rapidly evolving tactics. This paper presents the results of recent efforts to understand and accommodate new, blended range training infrastructures that are able to present flexible and consistent Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) based environments in a secure fashion.
