Job Description

The FMS/D software is a portable, user-friendly, real-time, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL), digital simulation of the various PATRIOT radar, launcher, and missile configurations.

While FMS/D is the main Software Product out Lab is responsible for, it is actually part of a suite of Software Products developed by the FMS/D Lab that simulate other parts of the PATRIOT weapon system. The FMS/D program produces highly visible products used around the world for training of soldiers on the PATRIOT weapon system, and to test other systems that interoperate with PATRIOT.
