Boeing has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Air Force for the development of a next-generation Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System (CRIIS) that will help improve the accuracy and realism of joint service test and training activities. CRIIS sets a new standard for time-space-position information, or TSPI, replacing the Advanced Range Data System developed in the 1980s.

Through CRIIS, the services will be able to test and train on numerous aircraft and weapon systems via a secure datalink while reducing the total number of training configurations. Because of its small size, the system can be transported by a single person or installed easily on aircraft like the F-22 Raptor.

"The Boeing CRIIS team brings proven program management and systems engineering expertise and dynamic industry leadership to successfully support the warfighter," said Tony Jones, vice president, Training Systems and Services, a division of IDS Support Systems. "We have assembled the best of industry to provide the lowest-risk solution, while ensuring the highest probability of program success for our customer."

Boeing's proposal includes an advanced data link, superior TSPI, next generation encryption and advanced testing methodologies. The Air Force is expected to award the contract in May 2008.

"The proposed solution will allow warfighters to test and train on aircraft and weapon systems at levels never before reached," said Jones.
