How does the system support electronic map data outside the U.S.?
The Map Station available from Leidos provides a user-definable electronic map database. It supports common map types such as CADRG, CIB, ADRG, TIFF, CAC, Intergraph, and CRP. For areas of the world without electronic map data, the Map Station can process paper charts seamlessly into the existing map database. Multi-datum support includes the earth centered WGS-84 and WGS-72 models. Maps can be further annotated with an overlay editor where overlays can be embedded into the map for subsequent use by the MPS, MUTACTS or in the cockpit.
Can the system be modified to accommodate new airframes?
Yes. Leidos can adapt the MUTACTS technology based on customer criteria. Leidos has made adaptations for both US and foreign aircraft. MUTACTS also supports data from Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) pods for dissimilar aircraft mission debrief.
How does the system support cockpit video playback?
MUTACTS supports the playback of COMM and video recorded in the cockpit synchronized with high fidelity 3-D and 2-D displays through a serial RS-232 interface with a popular video debriefing system. Intuitive VCR-like controls allow the operator to move the replay quickly to points of interest during the debrief.
What types of weapons simulations are supported?
Various weapons including both air-to-air and air-to-ground are supported with precise fly-out simulations and ground target scoring. Accuracy is ensured through the integration of simulations provided by the manufacturer of current weapons systems.
