is MILES 2000?
The Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System, or MILES 2000, is a laser-based
training system in which soldiers and marines fire infrared "bullets" from
the same weapons and vehicles that they would use in actual combat. These
simulated direct fire events cause realistic audio/visual effects and "casualties."
The exercise events and casualties are recorded, replayed and analyzed in
detail during After Action Reviews (AARs).
Why MILES 2000?
MILES 2000 is the first MILES system to truly replicate the ranges and lethality
of actual weapons. Both the fidelity of weapons simulations and alignment
retention of MILES 2000 are far superior to the older MILES. Realism is
also enhanced by unique player ID codes, which ensure accurate data collection
for the highest quality AARs. MILES 2000 is flexible as well, allowing commanders
to tailor the equipment to meet the needs of their training exercises
DRAMATIC COST SAVINGS
Along with providing realistic training, MILES 2000 will save customers
millions of dollars in life-cycle costs. This feature will save the U.S.
Army more than $10 million per year on batteries alone. MILES 2000 is designed
with extensive built-in test capability as well, which minimizes the need
for additional test equipment and maximizes the training time.
LOWEST RISK TO FUTURE CUSTOMERS
