WASHINGTON. The United States Air Force (USAF) will use the Collins Aerospace/Leonardo DRS P6CTS as its official air combat training program and has selected the Collins Aerospace Tactical Combat Training System – Increment II (TCTS II) as the preferred solution.

The P6CTS trains air combat personnel to operate in contested or congested environments through live/virtual/constructive (LVC) training and synthetic injection capability for live (SITL) enhancements. The training system also includes individual multi-level security encryption (MILS), which enables full-fidelity threats and weapon simulation sharing between platforms with different levels of security.

Collins Aerospace officials report that the P6 CTS program was funded to replace 100% of old combat training systems at approximately 55 USAF training fields. Initial Operating Capability (IOC) for the program is scheduled for late 2022 at Naval Air Station Fallon, Nevada with full-rate production (FRP) beginning in early 2023.
