The DGT comes with two power cables (Figure B-5): one for use with 110VAC power (cable W2) and the other for use with 220VAC power (cable W1). Each is 8 feet long.
Instructor station shipping containers (Figure B-6, page B-5) are made from olive drab-colored polyethylene. Soldiers can stack these containers four deep. Each has specially shaped inserts to prevent damage to the components. The shipping container resists dust and water. The base and cover each have two carrying handles, one on each end. The container has four latches on each side and three latches along each end.
Figure B-6. Instructor console shipping container.
a. The container bears the stenciled message on each end in two places: CAUTION, 198 POUNDS, 4-MAN LIFT (MALE ONLY).
b. The shipping container has an identification number and a part number stenciled on the right side of the base along with an arrow icon: REUSABLE CONTAINER P/N 13363801.
c. The instructor station identification and part number are stenciled on the top of the container cover: INSTRUCTOR STATION DRAGON/DRAGON INDOOR P/N 13363800. This part number includes the instructor station and shipping container.
d. The caution HANDLE WITH CARE, REUSABLE CONTAINER is stenciled on both ends of the base.
The student station consists of the Dragon unit, the weight assembly, the student headset, a special-purpose cable, the student station's shipping container, disks, and an operator's manual (Figure B-7).
Figure B-7. Student station components.
The Dragon unit (Figure B-8) consists of a sight assembly, bipod assembly and retaining strap, and launcher assembly. The student views the mission through the sight assembly. The retaining strap secures the bipod assembly during storage. The bipod assembly supports the launcher and sight assemblies. The launcher assembly simulates the Dragon launch tube.

a. Sight Assembly. The DGT sight assembly (Figure B-9) operates as either the daysight or nightsight, depending on the mission loaded at the instructor console. The sight displays the mission visual signals. The sight assembly attaches to the Dragon launch assembly.

SIGHT GRIP CONTROL (CTRS)
(1) The sight assembly has a daysight grip, a switch to select the daysight or nightsight, an eyepiece, a brightness control (BRT), a contrast control (CTRS), a sight focus ring, a thermal sight grip, and a headset jack. The eyepiece simulates both the daysight and nightsight eyepieces.
(2) On its right side (Figure B-10), the sight assembly has a safety and a right-hand trigger grip. Before the student can pull the trigger, he must first depress and hold the safety with his thumb.
(3) The sensor port, power connectors, video receptacle, and recessed analog, digital, and audio jacks are located on the rear panel of the sight assembly (Figure B-11). The trainer may record launch tube movements from the reflector assembly via a sensor port. A CAUTION label designates the sight assembly as a sensitive electronic device.

b. Bipod Assembly. The bipod assembly (Figure B-12), which supports the launcher and sight assemblies, attaches to the front end of the launcher assembly.
c. Launcher Assembly. This assembly houses the pull-down sensor (Figure B-12). The sensor measures the force with which the student is pulling down on the launch tube. The weight-drop assembly and bipod attach to the launcher assembly.

The weight assembly (Figure B-13) drops to simulate the effect that occurs when the Dragon missile leaves the launch tube. A pin in the center of the weight assembly attaches it to the rear of the launch tube. The weight assembly drops 0.6 seconds after the soldier depresses the trigger.

The headset (Figure B-14, page B-5) allows the student to hear the instructor's commands as well as the audio portion of the mission. A 3-foot long cable and a headphone plug connect the headset to the sight assembly.
