TADSS Certification

Units are required to have personnel trained on the following device prior to being signed out of the warehouse: MILES, IEDES, Artillery Simulators, Small Arms Simulators, and TC3X.

All training is scheduled through RFMSS <–click here


The Improvised Explosive Device Effects Simulator (IEDES) kit is to provide an extensive kit of equipment designed to be used together in a scalable fashion for Explosive Hazard Defeat (EHD) training. Allows units to safely create simulated battlefield cues, signatures and effects that promote effective learning for EHD. The system allows soldiers to train against counter-personnel and counter-material Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) threats.




The XM-10/ Artillery Simulator is used to provide simulation of IED or Artillery shell impact explosion for training soldiers how to react to these situations. The Devise provides a very robust blast wave and flash, giving a realistic yet safe simulation.






The XM-2A produces the sound and flash effect of live machine gun for training and recognition purpose. This device is portable and easy to conceal and operate. The XM-2A can be operated with a manual trigger wire or by remote control.


The Tactical Combat Casualty Care Exportable, or TC3X, simulates the three main causes of death on the battlefield: airway obstruction, tension pneumothorax and blood hemorrhage, commonly referred to as the “ABC’s” — airway, breathing, and circulation. The TC3X is fully animatronic and effectively simulates the ABC’s through a heavily-monitored internal system, giving feedback to the soldiers through physical movements and vocalizations.
