Abstract : The primary purpose of the Practice Guided Weapon (PGW) is to train pilots on target acquisition and launch sequence procedures. In addition, the PGW, because of its similarity to the Guided Weapon Mk 1 Mod 0, is an ideal training device for aircraft handling, loading and maintenance crews. On a typical training flight using the PGW, the pilot is given a flight plan and targets are designated. The pilot makes simulated launches against these targets while his maneuvers are recorded on video tape inside the PGW. After the flight, the pilot and instructor view the video tape recording. In addition to the visual display of the flight, audio tones are present, indicating Lock-On, Intent-to-Launch, and azimuth/elevation tracking error. The video playback machine, supplied as associated equipment, has features for augmenting tape splicing and for sound dubbing. The sound dub feature facilitates recording of training tapes or recording the pilots' and instructors' comments on practice flight tapes during playback after the flight.
