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.

TTS supplies professional live fire solutions to train gunners and crews of armored vehicles on intelligent stationary and moving targets. TTS offers a wide range of stationary and moving full and half size armor targets with flank (profile) or head-on views, which can either pop-up or be constantly exposed.

Shooting on moving targets is a real challenge and provides enhanced situational training for any shooter. At TTS the continued expansion of the modular target systems 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.

For precision shooting and zeroing, TTS offers marking and scoring technology for supersonic and subsonic projectiles. The LOMAH Sensor system is an infantry precision target system that 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.  Box Target systems operate in subsonic as well as in supersonic regions / modes. The generated signals are used to calculate the position of the shot.

To meet the demands of military and civilian government Special Operations Forces (SOF), TTS developed overhead retrievable target systems (ORT) in various configurations. These systems are specifically designed for dynamic and scalable training on indoor shooting ranges and meet the demands of military and civilian government special operations forces

In addition to the target system, TTS delivers a wide variety of simulators and accessories. Battle Effects and Sound Simulators realistically create the acoustical impression of a tank, anti-tank weapon, or a hostile fire weapons system. These systems provide trainee’s and experienced shooters alike with a cost-effective and realistic training environment and creates the stressful situations similar to the experience in combat. Thermal Imaging Systems are used to heat target silhouettes of infantry or armor targets.
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.
