Thermal Targets

As thermal weapon sights become more prevalent on the battlefield, there is a need for armed forces to train using realistic thermal targets. Drawing on our deep knowledge of battlefield thermal signatures coupled with our advanced materials capabilities we have produced a new technology solution for passive and active thermal targets.

Demonstration of a thermal target

Our patented technology gives a representative thermal signature to any in-service thermal weapons sight and maintains an accurate thermal image even after the target has been punctured by multiple rounds.

The flexibility and modularity of the technology enables targets to be changed between friendly/neutral and hostile configurations at the flick of a switch without the need to “pop up” a separate target.
