PacSci EMC / Flight Termination Systems

FLIGHT TERMINATION SYSTEM (FTS)

We know range safety.

PacSci EMC provides safety critical components and subsystems for space and missile flight termination systems.

All of our flight termination sytem products are configured, tested and qualified to the requirements of your range and program. They are designed to effectively protect a system and will prevent inadvertent initiation of a Flight Destruct/Termination System (FTS) or rocket motor ignition. They will work only on command and when commanded.

WHY FLIGHT TERMINATION SYSTEMS?

Every day missions are at stake, lives must be protected and personnel must come home. Range Commander Council RCC-319 provides for the safety of people and missions during flight operations. In the event of an errant flight, a Flight Termination System (FTS) renders each power stage and/or propulsion system non-propulsive

OUR FLIGHT TERMINATION SYSTEMS INCLUDE

– Redundancy
– Physical separation of redundant strings
– Independence from other vehicle systems
– Inadvertent separation destruct system when applicable
– Both engine shutdown and destruct capability when needed
– Reliability > 0.999 @ 95% confidence
