Training and Technical Resources Integrated Performance Support System (TRIPSS™)


Imagine a customized training and technical data support solution, lowering costs, while making training and technical data available to all users whenever and wherever* up-to-date information is needed.

With the Training and Technical Resources Integrated Performance Support System (TRIPSS™), imagination is reality as operators, maintainers, and system administrators are immersed in a total training and technical support system. TRIPSS provides just-in-time learning and 3D interactive technical operations and maintenance support at the point and time of need.

What is TRIPSS?

TRIPSS is a customized, interactive 3D training and technical data solution. Integrated into a high-end, graphical user interface, TRIPSS provides operators, maintainers, and system administrators with on-demand, 24/7 access* to vital processes, procedures and technical support data to get their jobs done safely, quickly, and accurately.

How TRIPSS Works

TRIPSS is a standards based, database-driven system with options to be networked or used as a stand-alone system. TRIPSS can be accessed on desktops, laptops, and tablets.

TRIPSS’ high-end graphical interface allows users to access a suite of tailored logistics and training tools including:

  • 3D Interactive Modeling providing a System-to-Component interactive method of locating Lowest Replaceable Units (LRUs) and their associated Removal and Replacement (R&R) procedures (Job Aids)
  • Interactive Job Aids combining step-by-step procedures with 3D procedural animations and their corresponding engineering drawings and technical manuals/procedures
  • Course Tracking System (CTS), a learning management tool that allows managers to assign, track, and report training, and allows students to launch training and track progress
  • Computer-Based Training (CBT) including training simulations and assessments, and integrated with CTS to report course completion
  • xSync Video Training providing 24/7 access* to instructor- led training with synchronized presentation media and training resources
  • Document and Media Library for any media format providing Technical Manuals, GOTS/COTS documents, engineering drawings, program documents, and multimedia resources
  • Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) working hand-in-hand with Job Aids and maintenance procedures by functioning as a quick reference guide or checklist for procedural steps, configurations, and/or settings
