SECTION II. EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
EQUIPMENT PURPOSE, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES
PURPOSE OF MILES SIMULATOR SYSTEM, LASER: M1 TANK
The MILES Simulator System, Laser: M1 Tank, permits the vehicle and crew to take part in realistic combat training exercises. Actual firing conditions of all vehicle weapons are simulated using laser beams. Blank ammunition and a Hoffman device add to the system's realism.
Laser detectors mounted on the M1 tank and worn by crew members sense enemy fire. MILES system electronics determines the accuracy and simulated damage of enemy fire. The system also detects the type of weapon directing enemy fire against the M1 vehicle.
Operates in temperatures from -35°C (-26°F) to 62°C (144°F).
Compatible with all other MILES training devices.
High visibility CVKI strobe light signals vehicle "NEAR MISS," "HIT" or "KILL".
M2 Transmitter (1).
Simulates firing effects of Tank Commander's M2 machine gun by transmitting a special coded laser signal. Mounts on cooling jacket of M2 machine gun.
M240 Transmitter (2). Simulates firing effects of Loader's M240 machine gun by transmitting a special coded laser signal. Attaches to barrel of M240 machine gun.
Detection Belt System (3). Receives laser pulses from MILES-equipped opposing weapons. Generates, amplifies and routes electrical signals to the control console for determining whether signal was a "NEAR MISS," "HIT" or "KILL". Mounts on sides, front and rear of M1 turret.
Hoffman Device Simulator (4). Simulates firing signature of main gun. Mounts on main gun cannon tube.
Combat Vehicle Kill Indicator (5).
Flashes strobe light for a "KILL", "HIT" or "NEAR
MISS" indication. Mounts at left front lifting eye station.
Blank Firing Attachments (6). Permit using blank ammunition in M2 and M240 machine
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS (CONT)
Coax Machine Gun Microphone (7). Actuates coax machine gun transmitter. Attaches to lower machine gun barrel.
Main Gun/Coax Machine Gun Transmitter (8). Simulates firing effects of the 105 or 120 mm main gun and coaxial M240 machine gun by transmitting a coded laser signal. Fits into main gun breech.
Control Console (Loader Control Assembly
LCA) (9). Receives detected laser pulse signals from detector assemblies. Decodes these signals, and actuates appropriate audio and visual alarms. Provides electrical signals to fire main gun/coax machine gun transmitter. Contains a key receptacle for initializing system, silencing intercom alarm and resetting system. Mounts on left side of turret on tank support plate.
Battery Box (10).
Contains two 6-volt batteries for operating main gun/coax machine gun laser transmitter, control console and detector belts.
