The MGTS (known to DoD clients as "FlexTrain") is a rapidly deployable, GPS-based instrumentation system. It can be customized for your specific collective training, test and evaluation, policy analysis, or performance assessment. The system can track and record event data for up to 65,000 entities, allowing leadership teams to monitor events in real time and replay scenarios in instrumented after-action reviews.
The MGTS has been successfully deployed in 60 km by 100 km areas and is compatible with all fielded US Multiple Instrumented Laser Engagement Systems (MILES).

Training/Testing as a Service (TaaS) ×
Our Mobile Ground Truth System (MGTS) is available to rent through our Training/Testing as a Service business model. This allows for a la carte pricing to make the most efficient use of your dollar—with no upfront investment.
Before deployment, we customize the mission type, play-box size, terrain, player count, dismounts, and vehicles to fit your needs. Then, we export the MGTS to your operational site and perform continuous sustainment.

From the Lab ×
System Engineering & Integration
We have multidisciplinary engineering capabilities, ranging from open-source software development to hardware design and field integration. The team has pioneered advancements in live-virtual-constructive (LVC) technology and has been a proud provider of Army National Guard training systems since 1995.
Prototype, Test, and 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, including drawings, schematics, software installation files, and procedures. We are present 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.

System Configuration and Information Assurance
We work with our DoD partners using resources from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and industry to ensure that the MGTS continues to have a strong cybersecurity posture. This enables the MGTS to interface with other training and simulation systems without compromising the security of those systems.
Logistics Support and 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.
Through careful planning and project staffing, we prevent problems before they occur. Our field-proven standard operating procedures guide equipment transport from depot to the field and back again. When the time comes to implement a hardware or software upgrade, we thoroughly test the new technology before release.
To the Field ×
We believe that by providing a turnkey 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.
Our Mobile Ground Truth System operates independently via user facilities, power, fuel, and networks. Our field-proven exercise control software suite, , can track up to 65,000 entities 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 100 km into ultra-realistic simulation environments that subject operators to the sights and sounds of natural disaster, security, or combat scenarios. Each event is tailored to the client's unique objectives. 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.
