CATS explained

The Combined Aerial Targets Service (CATS) is a separate 20-year contract to satisfy the UK MOD with a worldwide service of subsonic aerial targets for training and testing weapons systems. Aerial target systems include Banshee, Voodoo, Mirach and Pop-ups. CATS operates at some of the LTPA air ranges as well as other locations around the world. Whilst the CATS contract is also managed by QinetiQ it operates under separate terms and conditions from the LTPA contract.
