The Rattler Ground / Air Launched – Supersonic Target (GAL-ST) (Rattler) is a Canadian made, low-cost target designed to replicate anti-radiation missiles and supersonic high-diver threats in an innovative and cost-effective manner.
The Rattler can be air launched by the QTS produced Banshee Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and operated simultaneously by the QTS produced Universal Target Control Station (UTCS). By being air launched from the Banshee UAV, the Rattler provides an increased profile range over comparable threat representative targets and offers the capability to present multiple targets after separation.
The Rattler provides a threat-representative profile with its supersonic capability, mission flexibility with the ability to be air launched from a Banshee UAV, maneuverability at supersonic speeds and increases training availability due to its low-cost design.
