AbstractThe Range Division of the 412th Test Wing has recently had to incorporate high power RF transmission, remote monitoring and remote operation of systems to support the new Range Safety function incorporated within the Range. The sub-systems that make-up the Range Safety System are: Command Transmitter System (CTS) Command Panel System (CPS) Instantaneous Impact Prediction (IIP) (modified TECCS) Range Safety Data Display (ADAPS) Range Safety Data Recording (RaSDR) Flight Termination Test Set Being aware of the increasing importance of cost associated with ground and flight testing, the Range has structured its systems around Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) hardware and software and remote operations where ever and when ever possible. This paper will outline the Ranges approach to Range safety addressing the rational behind the system design and making the customer happy. We will also discuss typical operations and how the Range maintains redundancy and RCC compliance.
