The Bots actually respond like a Live Adversary - For the gun enthusiasts that want more out of just shooting at paper targets or moving targets. How about moving robot targets that moves autonomously?
Check out Robotic Human-Type Targets from Australias Marathon Targets, theyre basically dummy mannequins on wheels with a computer embedded. The bots can be programmed to various scenario whether the bots is hit or not. The idea is to deploy human-looking dummies that can look, move, and behave like people, with a degree of networked autonomy.
For example, when one bot goes down in a hail of gunfire, the others can respond by heading for cover or regroup for a counter-attack. No joystick required. To further add functionality to the training, scenarios can be program into the robots whether its for a hostage situation to a couple tangos walking along the street from 200 yards out. Read the rest of robot targets.
That sounds fun! I bet you could make their reactions comical, and then you’d have folks shooting and laughing. Sounds like a good business!
It’s all fun & games until one of the bots runs around behind your buddy...
Nah, I’d rather just use real people.
Note: shouldn’t have to say this, but it is a joke.
I gotta imagine these are a little pricey for the average shootin’ range.
State of the art ‘Whack A Mole’!
I’ll be flying out of Cannon AFB soon on Space-A ..... will stop in my old EOD shop for a visit...... EOD always goes through phases with career climbing administrative sorts that fly a desk and others that know how much C4 to shove up a bulls ass to blow its horns off without making it’s eye’s water. Sorts that are clerks cooks and bottle washers versus triathletes that can shoot scoot loot and render safe a Rolex full of RDX ........
.....As detachments we were very busy building skills. When absorbed by Civil Engineers AFEOD budget was controlled by a Union like environment versus a military unit. Hopefully that affiliation is eliminated very soon between CES and EOD Detachments. Budgets are the limiting factors for skills, CES steals EOD’s bank.
” and others that know how much C4 to shove up a bulls ass to blow its horns off without making its eyes water.”
I KNEW it was worth asking you!
