Simultaneous MANPADS gunners and aircrew training

Incredible adaptability

All MANPADS adjustable

MAAT is typically used with replicas of the SA-24, however, its incredible adaptability allows modification to any type of MANPADS. For authentic and accurate training Guardiaris can design the exact weapon replica of the customer's choice (Fim-92 Stinger, Type 91 Kai, FN-6, HN-5, QW-1, QW-2).

Versatile & flexible training

MAAT is not just for training of MANPADS gunners. Aircraft and electronic-warfare crews that respond to detected missile alarms are trained as well. MAAT simulates rocket launches and triggers a missile detection alarm on any MAWS equipped aircraft with UV sensors which detect UV radiation in solar blind regions. It allows long-range operation up to 5 km.

Efficient training

During a surface-to-air attack exercise, electronic flares can be manually or automatically engaged after being triggered by the MAWS detection. MAAT simulates the exact pattern of missiles, which results in the true-to-life training experience.

The tripod version

The tripod version relieves the gunner of the 17 kg for endurance training of helicopter crews in “detect – react – manoeuvre” and countermeasures deployment.

Ultimate After-Action Review

Comprehensive After-Action Review enables operator, gunner or pilot performance monitoring in real-time. An automatic report is generated for each missile launch and allows instant analysis and personalization of training plans.
