Advanced electronic target system
When training on a shooting range, paper targets allow for shooters and the instructor to know exactly where a round was fired, however, when operating in a dynamic environment requiring both speed and accuracy, paper targets only provide information relating to the accuracy.
We utilise a sophisticated electronic target system and sensors which can be mounted within a range of target silhouettes as well as on doorways and entrances anywhere within a training environment to provide objective and quantifiable data; with times measured to the millisecond.
Use a range of projectiles
All of our equipment is designed to be used with a range of training projectiles, including Simunition, paintballs and BB’s.
Reports can be produced to analyse reaction times, time from enter a room to engaging the first target, time between engaging target and target being eliminated; if the scenario requires a target to be hit more than once, as well as overall times to clear a room and complete set objectives.
All of this is done automatically, without the need for participants to carry out any additional actions and without the need for a stopwatch!
The system can be used either with or without visual ques to provide users with immediate feedback when targets are hit and can also be set to illuminate in a variety of colours as well as multiple times.
This therefore allows for a variety of potential scenarios to be created which can require participants to process what they are seeing and decide what action to take depending on the briefing they have received; similar to what they would have to do in real world situations.
The interactive system is wireless which therefore allows for excellent force on target training as well as the addition of as many or as few targets as required.
Training which engages the participants
Portable & effective
Our advanced targets can be set up quickly and easily at any venue in the UK after consultation with your organisations training team and a brief regarding the desired outcomes; this therefore turns every environment into a high tech interactive training facility.
Organisations not only receive quantifiable data, however, the system can also help to improve:
- Decision making under stress
- Cognitive processing
- Central and peripheral awareness
- Dynamic movement
Data which could be provided includes:
- Time hallway entered
- Time of first engagement of target 1
- Time to eliminate target 1
- Time room A entered
- Time of first engagement of target 2
- Time to eliminate target 2
- Time of first engagement of target 3
- Time to eliminate target 3
- Time room A exited
- Time room B entered
- Time of first engagement of target 4
- Time to eliminate target 4
- Time room B exited
- Time hallway excited
The advanced nature of the system can provide:
- An ability to objectively analyse the time effectiveness of different methods of room clearance including experimental methods.
- Analysis of an individual’s performance at any given time. This could be used as part of an ongoing assessment of an individual’s ability after an injury/incident, as part of their continual development and/or as part of a selection process to assess suitability for future training.
- An ability to objectively analyse new and/or current equipment in relation to its time effectiveness.
- Analysis of a group’s effectiveness at a set point. This could include analysis of a team’s performance before and after an intense period of training, after an incident or after new members have joined.
Dependant on the exact equipment used, the level of data required and the complexity of the training environment, a degree of data can be provided immediately on completion of the exercise, or our technician can analyse the data and produce a more detailed report shortly after; this can be in as little as 10 minutes.
What They See
Dependant on the exact training being undertaken, the training environment and the projectiles being used, we are also able to provide specialist glasses (which meet EN166:2001 protective eye ware standards) which not only record anything which is said, however, will also record exactly what the participant Is looking at; these glasses even allow for the camera to be positioned just above the shooters dominant eye, therefore allowing the capture of the view directly down the weapon, from the participants own perspective.
All of this media can be not only be recorded for review at a later stage, however, it can also be wirelessly transmitted to a control room to allow the trainer or other participants the ability to view in real time what is being seen and said by the individual/s wearing the glasses.
As a progressive company, we are continually developing systems and products and work closely with our partners so that we can not only better understand their needs, but develop bespoke systems and products to better cater for these
