The fully integrated Combined Arms Range (CAR) enables the full spectrum of threat targets to be engaged from the ground and air. ATS has developed a suite of rugged portable and fixed target mechanisms designed to simulate moving and static armoured fighting vehicles, Infantry and other ground-based threats found on the modern battlefield. The Range Control System (RCS) accommodates standard gunnery practices or can be customised to achieve complex combined arms scenarios, facilitating unit level live fire training and performance evaluation.
Targets can be fitted with a projectile location system (PLS) that detects heavy machine gun, tank, and aircraft rounds and immediately relays shot information back to the firer, saving time and ammunition costs. The system can record and display up to 6000 rounds a minute with target engagements only limited by the range of the weapon system being employed.
TANK ZEROING TARGETS
This device allows tank crews/gunners to calibrate their sighting systems accurately to the actual fall of shot over prescribed distances. All direct fire weapon systems that fire supersonic projectiles at the target sensor area from the armoured vehicle can utilise the system.
These mechanisms are capable of lifting a full size tank target board to achieve realistic tank gunnery practices. They can be fitted with extras such as solar panels, programmable lighting effects and custom built trailers with mechanical handling equipment.
Capable of lifting multiple full size tank target boards traveling at variable speeds across undulating terrain. The system can be fitted with battle noise simulation devices.
AIR TO GROUND
Capable of locating supersonic projectiles fired by aircraft employed in the ground attack role. The system can record and display up to 6,000 rounds per minute. The system displays an outline of the target, clearly indicating both hits and misses and is capable of instantly calculating the mean point of impact to be relayed to the aircraft pilot or used for post mission analysis.
