SABRE Ballistics, a Sydor Technologies Company, is beginning in this fiscal quarter the shipment and installation of the first of four site installations of the SABRE Air Weapons Scoring System (AWSS). The AWSS provides interactive air force pilot training by utilizing real-time feedback regarding the accuracy and effectiveness of the pilot’s performance while in flight. This interactive feedback improves pilot training and allows instrument tuning that provides a significant economic return from the reduced number of sorties and flying hours. The AWSS consists of transportable camera sensor arrays focused on a bomb court and acoustic sensor arrays focused on the strafing court. These sensor arrays stream processed data to command centers, which communicate in real time with the pilots. As part of the contract, SABRE Ballistics is also supplying the turnkey installation of command viewing and equipment towers. The system utilizes a configuration similar to SABRE Ballistics’ land based Mobile Artillery Scoring System (MASS).

“The AWSS contract was previously announced just under a year ago. After the commercial aspects were completed SABRE immediately began diligent work to ensure all milestones were achieved well within the customers expected delivery dates. Executing on this contract is a major project for SABRE and our SABRE team has developed a great synergy with our outsource partners to stay very aligned on the complex, turnkey details of an installation in a typically remote base location,” stated Glenn Hopkinson, Vice President, UK Operations, SABRE Ballistic Division.
