FTCGS-1 Flight Termination Control

The Flight Termination Control Ground System Series FTCGS-1 is a fully integrated, dual redundant flight termination control system comprising of a 19” Main Unit with two external transmission modules. Distance between the shelter based Main Unit and the external Transmission Modules, which are to be mounted at the antenna mast, can be up to 50 meters. The design is made with respect to the stringent reliability demands of today’s test ranges.


The FTCGS-1 is designed to meet the RCC319/92 standard. There are several options available to meet specific frequency, tone sequence, programming, output power and remote control requirements.
