BQM-167A

The BQM-167A Air Force Subscale Aerial Target (AFSAT) is the only subscale aerial target platform operated by the U.S. Air Force. The primary role of the BQM-167A is to provide U.S. Air Force aviators with the worlds most realistic and comprehensive end-to-end weapons-release training.

With an industry-leading fuel capacity of 115 U.S. gallons, the BQM-167As operation time-on-station is more than double that of the legacy platform it replaced. The longer available flight time means more presentations per launch, significantly reducing the targets cost of ownership.

The versatile design of the BQM-167A supports various mission requirements by accepting a wide array of internal and external payloads including scoring (vector and scalar), Identification Friend-or-Foe (IFF), passive and active radar augmentation, electronic countermeasures, infrared (IR) augmentation (plume pods), and internally stored chaff and flares.

Based upon the proven success of the U.S. Air Force BQM-167A aerial target, the BQM-167i provides discriminating international customers with the worlds most realistic end-to-end weapons-release training. With an operational ceiling of 15,000 meters and a top speed of .93 Mach, the BQM-167i allows international users an unparalleled opportunity to test and train against threat-representative target systems at altitudes and speeds otherwise unavailable with competing target platforms.

Boasting an industry-leading fuel capacity of 284 liters, the BQM-167i promises unrivaled value by delivering up to three times more presentations per launch than other target systems in its class.

The versatile design of the BQM-167i supports various mission requirements by accepting a wide array of internal and external payloads including towed targets, smoke oil, scoring (vector and scalar), Identification Friend or Foe (IFF), passive and active RF augmentation, infrared (IR) augmentation (plume pods), chaff, and flares.
