The MGTS (known to DOD clients as "FlexTrain") is a rapidly-deployable, GPS-based instrumentation system. The system can be used for training, testing, performance evaluation and live operations. The MGTS tracks vehicles and participants to the individual level, allowing unit leaders to monitor events in real-time and replay scenarios in Instrumented After Action Reviews.
The MGTS has been successfully deployed in 60 km by 80 km areas and can track thousands of players.
The system is available on a rental basis and can be tailored for your training, testing, policy analysis, performance assessment, or operational requirements.

From the Lab ×
System Engineering & Integration
Ravenswood Solutions has multidisciplinary engineering capabilities ranging from open source software development to hardware design and field integration. The team has pioneered advancements in Live-Virtual-Constructive (L-V-C) technology and has been a proud provider of Army National Guard training systems since 1995.
Prototype, Test & Evaluation
We develop in-house solutions quickly and effectively. We do substantial testing to validate our design or evaluate other potential solutions. Whether it is testing on the bench top, in the field with the end user, vetting first articles for production, or environmental testing – the Ravenswood Solutions team has done it.
Production & Deployment
Our Product Development team coordinates production runs of systems and components on small and large scales. The team takes prototype and engineering models from first articles through mass production. We create complete build documentation packages to include drawings, schematics, and software installation files and procedures. We are there through production, delivery, acceptance validation, and new equipment training.
Ravenswood has a strategic partnership with GDM Electronic & Medical, LLC, an AS9100 registered contract manufacturing firm servicing the high-tech industry since 1983. Working with the San Jose manufacturer to innovate, incorporate new technologies, and manufacturer here, in the USA, Ravenswood mitigates risk to our customers and maintains the highest integrity of products.
Product Life Cycle Management
We monitor the ongoing health and life cycle of our products, including continued design evaluation, maintenance schedule determination, failure rate tracking, and end of life status for product components. The result ensures product quality, availability, and up-time are at the highest standard.

System Configuration & Information Assurance
We work with our DoD partners using resources from DISA, NIST, and industry to ensure that the FlexTrain system continues to have a strong cybersecurity posture. This enables the FlexTrain system to be interoperable with other training and simulation systems, without compromising the security of those systems.
Logistics Support & Product Life Cycle Management
Through careful planning and project staffing, we prevent problems before they occur. Our field-proven SOPs guide equipment transport from depot to the training area and back again. When the time comes to implement a hardware or software upgrade, we thoroughly test the new technology before it is released to the field.
To the Field ×
We believe that by providing a turn-key logistics and technology package, we allow operators to focus on the mission at hand, optimize resources, and exploit opportunities. We assure all events occur on time, as planned, and are fully-resourced.
The Ravenswood Solutions Mobile Ground Truth System (MGTS) is self-sufficient, operating independently from user facilities, power, fuel, and networks and can provide Training-as-a-Service (TaaS) for up to 3,000 players. Our field-proven software suite, , can track up to 65,000 entitities with unrivaled fidelity.
We have converted urban areas as small as 1 km x 1 km, and barren terrain as large as 60 km x 80 km into ultra-realistic simulation environments that subject operators to the sights and sounds of natural disaster, security, or combat scenarios. Each is tailored to unique training, testing or performance assessment objectives. Finally, our After-Action-Reviews, complete with video, audio, and GPS-synchronized playback, have been hailed by users as an invaluable and irreplaceable learning and assessment tool.
