WHY FTS?

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. We walk every customer through RCC-319 requirements they need to satisfy, ensuring mission assurance.

OUR FTS INCLUDE

– Redundancy
– Physical separation of redundant strings

– Inadvertent separation destruct system when applicable
– Both engine shutdown and destruct capability when needed
– Reliability > 0.999 @ 95% confidence
