NC-130H Airborne Seeker Evaluation and Test System (ASETS)

NC-130H Airborne Seeker Evaluation and Test System (ASETS)


Kirtland AFB, New Mexico (NM), US
65-0979/ET (AFRL'S ELLA - Getting Electric Lasers Airborne)

The NC-130H Airborne Seeker Evaluation and Test System (ASETS) is an airborne platform for Developmental Test and Evaluation of air-to-ground and air-to-air seekers and sensors. The ASETS is one of the many Measurement Systems and Facilities (MSF) supported by Eglin's Simulation and Signature Division. The turret measures 50 inches in diameter and extends 70 inches below the aircraft. Because of the low ground clearance of the C-130, a unique retractor mechanism lifts the turret inside the aircraft during takeoffs and landings, and deploys the turret outside the aircraft during testing. The turret has over 7 cubic feet of payload space, and can accommodate up to 300 pounds of equipment. The turret contains a five-axis gyro-stabilized gimbal system that maintains line of sight (LOS) stability of +/- 125 microradians in pitch, roll, and yaw axes. The purpose of the 95-GHz Airborne Radar Measurement System (95-RMS) is to collect high resolution Millimeter Wave (MMW) clutter and target-in-clutter data to support the development of smart munitions. The 95-RMS has been used on the Airborne Seeker Evaluation and Test System (ASETS) as part of the Airborne Instrumentation System (AIS). This sensor forms an integral part of a multispectral instrumentation suite (95 GHz radar , 3-5 & 8-12m IR cameras) known as the Airborne Instrumentation System (AIS). The AIS and all of the associated data acquisition systems, video recorders and support equipment are installed in a specially modified USAF C-130A (ASETS).
