TIS Enables Realistic Evolution of ATT Salvo Tactics


TPSS Initiated Shutdown (TIS)

  • ATT target did not die after successful test engagement
  • TPSS Initiated Shutdown (TIS) will calculate the range to an incoming ATT in real time
  • TIS processing will shutdown the target when the ATT is sufficiently close
ATT Salvo
