    ACMI (Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation System)


    INTRODUCTION

    Success in the modern air-to-air combat arena depends on effective and realistic peacetime training. The nature of peacetime training requires accurate and detailed mission debriefs. Accurate reconstruction of the mission events is a challenging aspect of the mission debrief. AERO has developed Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation System which has revolutionized the training concept of Air Force.

    SYSTEM CAPABILITIES


    The ACMI system is designed to be range-less i.e. it can be operated without any restriction in any area. The system records the "Time Space Position Information" (TSPI) of all the aircraft involved in the training exercise along with their essential parameters onto a removable data storage. The important parameters are shared amongst participant's aircraft as well on ground for real time debrief. The capabilities of the system include:

    * Acquisition of aircraft data (MIL-STD-1553 or RS-232 bus)
    * Exchange of data between the participating aircrafts using real time data link .
    * Capture of “Weapon Employment Events”” (release/firing command).
    * Notification to pilots of weapon event results such as hit and miss for missiles for real time kill removal functionality.
    * Real time warnings to the pilot such as collision kill/miss etc..
    * Recording of time synchronized relevant information for post mission debriefing replay like chaff/flare dispenser, RWR, EW etc.
    * Post Launch missile fly out and bombing accuracy calculations.



    DEBRIEF STATION CHARACTERISTICS


    The debrief ground station software consists of three major parts:

    * Pre-mission configuration
    * Debriefing and Mission Recreation.
    * Report Generation and System Management.

    Recreation of mission includes graphical regeneration of mission as well as providing of information in numerical form that is essential for carrying out an effective debrief.

    Pakistan developing combat drones


    Islamabad, which publicly condemns attacks by US drones on militants in tribal areas by the Afghan border, has built its own

    Email Jon Boone in Karachi guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 13 November 2012


    Pakistan is on the cusp of joining an elite group of countries capable of manufacturing unmanned aircraft capable of killing as well as spying, a senior defence official has claims.

    Publicly, Islamabad, which officially objects to lethal drone strikes carried out by the CIA along its border with Afghanistan, says it is only developing remote-controlled aircraft for surveillance purposes.

    But last week, during a major arms fair held in Karachi, military officials briefed some of Pakistan's closest allies about efforts by the army to develop its own combat unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

    "The foreign delegates were quite excited by what Pakistan has achieved," said the official, who was closely involved with organising the four-day International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (Ideas). "They were briefed about a UAV that can be armed and has the capability to carry a weapon payload."

    The official said Pakistan wanted to demonstrate to friendly countries, principally Turkey and the Gulf, that it can be self-sufficient in a technology that is revolutionising warfare and which is currently dominated by a handful of countries that do not readily share the capability.

    "It does not have the efficiency and performance as good as Predator," he said, referring to the US combat drone widely used to attack militant targets. "But it does exist."

    He gave no details about the capabilities of the aircraft, or even its name.

    Huw Williams, an expert on unmanned systems at Jane's Defence Weekly, expressed doubts that Pakistan could have succeeded in progressing very far from the "pretty basic" small reconnaissance drones, which the country publicly exhibited at the weapons show, including the Shahpar and Uqab aircraft developed by the state-owned consortium Global Industrial and Defence Solutions.

    "The smaller systems are not greatly beyond that of a model aircraft," he said. "But the larger, long-endurance drones are a step up in technology across the board."

    Only the US and Israel are currently believed to have drones that can fire missiles. China and Turkey are also working on large-scale combat drones.

    Both countries exhibited models of drones at the sprawling Karachi conference centre, which included Pakistani companies marketing everything from guns that shoot around corners to inflatable tanks intended to fox surveillance aircraft.

    The big claims about Pakistan's developing drone capacity highlights the enormous interest in the technology from armies around the world.

    "Everyone has been asking us whether our drones can carry weapons," said Raja Sabri Khan, chief executive of Integrated Dynamics, a company that showed off a wide range of small and mid-size reconnaissance drones. "But that's a business for the big boys only."

    Khan has been deliberately refocusing his company's efforts on smaller drones, many of which are launched by hand, which are mostly intended for civilian use.

    A Pakistani army colonel attending the exhibition, after recently finishing a tour fighting against militants in the country's border region, said such small drones were a vital tool.

    "We have these small drones, but not enough of them and we do not always get them when we have operations," said the colonel, who did not wish to be named. "They are excellent for observing the Taliban, their movements and deployments."

    It was the seventh arms fair hosted by Pakistan intended to show off the country's defence industry.

    Organisers conceded that this year had not been a major commercial success but were pleased with the turnout after the last event in 2010 had to be cancelled.

    Several exhibitors said Pakistani companies – many of which are directly owned by the country's military – offered a cheaper alternative to developing countries looking to buy everything from tanks to computer simulators used to train pilots.

    Integrated Dynamics, a privately owned unmanned aerial vehicle company, has sold ten unmanned aerial vehicle systems to the Pakistan Armed Forces for perimeter surveillance, during the International Defence Exhibition and Seminar being held in the coastal city of Karachi.


    Raja Sabri Khan, Chief Executive of Integrated Dynamics, said that ten Skycam systems had been bought by the Pakistan Armed Forces. The Skycam is a hand-launched micro-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can fly at an altitude of 300+ metres over a range of 5 to ten kilometres. A complete Skycam system comprises two UAVs with cameras, a ground control station, data and communication links and antennas. The Skycam costs $1 000. Speed is 10-30 km/h and endurance is 30 minutes.

    Karachi-based Integrated Dynamics in the past produced UAVs primarily for the Pakistani military but is now moving into the civil arena, where it is focusing on markets like law enforcement, surveillance, surveying etc. The company manufactures 15 different UAVs, most of which are small – the smallest weighs just 800 grams.

    Khan said that his company has exported its products to such places as the United States, Australia, Spain, Libya and South Korea. The Border Eagle system is being used by the United States for border patrol. Khan added that potential South African customers had approached the company regarding the use of its UAVs for anti-poaching missions. However, no sales have yet been forthcoming from South Africa.

    Khan emphasised the peaceful nature of UAVs, saying the vast majority are built without weapons. The company has launched its Drones for Peace initiative, which is a collaboration between academia and Integrated Dynamics to showcase the peaceful uses of UAVs and other unmanned vehicles to the general public.

    A wide variety of Integrated Dynamics’ UAVs were on display at IDEAS 2012, including its Skycam 1 and 2 lightweight vehicles and Hummer vertical takeoff and landing UAV. These are being promoted under the Drones for Peace project. The UAVs can carry cameras or thermal sensors. Both platforms weigh less than 2 kg.

    Some of Integrated Dynamics UAVs include the Desert Hawk, Border Eagle, Hornet, Hawk, Vision, Shadow and Vector systems, designed for conventional landing and take-off, but which can be modified for ramp-launch and parachute recovery systems.

    Target and decoy UAVs include the mini jet-powered Tornado decoy, piston Nishan Mk II and jet-powered Nishan TJ-1000. Integrated Dynamics’ main civilian products are the Rover and Explorer systems, which can be operated in both UAV and RPV (Remotely Piloted Vehicle) modes.

    Pakistan’s UAV industry is fairly well developed and is expanding rapidly. Several companies produce UAVs, including Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (Uqaab, for the Pakistan Army and Ababeel and Baaz target drones), Air Weapons Complex (Bravo+/Jasoos II for the Pakisitan Air Force) and Integrated Defence Solutions (Huma-1). In collaboration with Selex Galileo, Pakistan Aeronautical Complex has started manufacturing the Falco UAV.

    Privately owned UAV firms include Satuma (Surveillance and Target Unmanned Aircraft), which produces UAVs like the Flamingo, Jasoos, Bravo+ and Mukhbar.
