Infantry Targets

Infantry Targets

TTS offers a wide range of infantry targets. For example - Pop-up targets can be exposed in a variety of ways with rotary movement combined with lifting to provide friend/foe discrimination training. TTS‘s automated stationary infantry targets increase the shooter’s enthusiasm resulting in improved training quality.

Stationary Armor Target

Stationary Armor Target (SAT)

TTS supplies professional live fire solutions to train gunners and crews of armored vehicles on intelligent stationary and moving targets. Our powerful medium sized lifters can lift half scale tank flank target silhouettes as well as frontal silhouettes of tanks and armored vehicles. Advanced target mechanisms serve typically on combined arms and multi-purpose ranges and simulate appearing and disappearing full-scale tank targets with dimensions up to 7m x 3m. The powerful hydraulic drive with its low clearance endows the SAT with an enormous lifting capacity of 300 kg and a smooth and sturdy lifting process even at large target silhouettes.

Moving Infantry Target (MIT)

Moving Target Systems – (MIT & MAT)

At TTS the continued expansion of the modular target systems now encompasses targetry where silhouettes, motion and speed can easily be altered to diversify the training and enhance training realism. With these capabilities, animation can be as unpredictable as the real combat threat.

Moving Armor Target (MAT)

Multifunctional Target Systems

Unlike regular pop up Infantry target training mechanisms MOUT systems from TTS can simulate six different adversary movements. The increased variety of target presentations and the greater training realism enhances training results and creates diversity unknown to conventional training equipment. Being designed for hostage rescue as well as qualification training the newly developed Hostage Target System - consisting of a combination of two independent infantry target mechanism - does not only train a trainee to hit a target, but also trains a shooter’s accuracy and teaches him what he is not supposed to shoot.

Range Control Tablet

Range Control Systems

TTS offers fully computerized Range Control Systems that allow for both control and status monitoring of all target appliances on the range. Different types of mobile control units are available as compact handheld target control systems. Specifically designed for military use, they are battery powered and radio controlled terminals to remotely operate and manage all equipment that can be delivered for a live fire training area by TTS.

In addition to a centralized control system, a range complex can be controlled from a Mobile control vehicle, which enables the instructor to move his range control to any desired location.


Automatic Marking Systems & Equipment – LOMAH & Box Targets

For precision shooting and zeroing, TTS offers marking and scoring technology for supersonic and subsonic projectiles. The LOMAH Sensor system enables the correct detection of the location of the hit on the target and is even able to detect the exact location of near misses. The special design of the newly developed 3D LOMAH system enables the scoring of projectiles fired with shooting angles up to ± 30° Azimuthand ± 10° Elevation. Box Target systems operate in subsonic as well as in supersonic regions. In addition to those systems TTS Shooter’s Monitors give a detailed view and precise hit results. Shot Sensors installed on each firing position guarantee unimpeachable hit counting and eliminate wrong scoring on multi-lane ranges.

Box Target Systems

Effects Simulators & Accessories

TTS delivers a wide variety of simulators and accessories. TTS non-pyrotechnic enemy fire and effect simulators resemble the bang and the gun smoke of a hostile tank, or anti-tank weapon. Night illumination devices, laser sensors and various simulators creating the impression of muzzles flashes, thermal human and vehicle signatures, hostile fire, battle sounds and gun smoke are available for all TTS appliances.

Overhead Retrievable Target

Indoor Range Equipment – Overhead Retrievable Targets (ORT)

To meet the demands of military and civilian government special operations forces, TTS developed overhead retrievable target systems (ORT) in various configurations. These types of systems are specifically designed for dynamic and scalable training in indoor shooting ranges. ORTs support training at varying (adjustable) shooting distances while simultaneously allowing for 180° turning target mechanism which can present the friend or foe side of a target board.
