TADSS is responsible for managing, warehousing, shipping and dispersing of training aids, devices and simulators. TADSS devices and training simulators are issued either on a temporary (short) or long-term loan basis from the TADSS branch to meet various unit training requirements for training missions or future deployments. TADSS has unexploded ordinance training kits that units can obtain on a temporary loan basis to develop IED reaction/detection scenarios and add realism to urban assault and security training. They also have a large inventory of Graphic Training Aids (GTAs) available for issue.

TADSS is responsible for the training and operation of sophisticated training simulators such as the Engagement Skills Trainer (EST 2000), Call for Fire Trainer (CFFT), High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle Egress assistance trainer (HEAT) and the Improvised Explosive Device Effects Simulators (IEDES). The EST 2000 provides training in marksmanship qualification, collective battle skills and shoot/don’t shoot scenarios. The CFFT is an observed fire-training system that provides simulated battlefield environments for instructing Fire Support Specialists. The purpose of the HEAT is to train Soldiers on the effects of rollover and to conduct drills that will provide the skills to react properly during a rollover or an egress situation. The IEDES is our newest and most realistic detection and reaction training against IED threats through simulated battlefield effects. Within the Fort Gordon area of support, the sophisticated training simulators are available to authorized units at Fort Gordon and active Army, Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve units. To schedule/reserve a simulator, call 706-791-1791/0348 or visit

The EST 2000 Virtual training Center is in Building 29610 on Barnes Avenue at Fort Gordon. Hours are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

As well as loaning and issuing training aids and devices, TADSS is the installation and regional property book manager for these items. TADSS is required by Army G-3 to maintain and account for all devices fielded to Fort Gordon and used by our customers on the Materiel Army-wide Tracking System or (TS-MATS).

TADSS Branch also manages non-MOS producing Troop Schools for the installation (Quarterly Company Commanders/First Sergeants Course; Warrior Leader Course OML; Combat Lifesaver Course coordination; and MTTs available in support of the installation).
