SAE 2 Pin

Tactical Training Target System Components

by on Oct.07, 2016, under Tactical Training Target System Components

As a result of the use of Our SAE 2 Pin connectors in Tactical Training Target Systems, We have taken special interest in them, and especially in the component equipment. Tactical Training Target System Components would include not only electrical connector assemblies (for example, sae2pin connector assemblies), but linear and rotary actuators, micro controllers, piezo vibration sensors, and polymer targets.

Actively participating in Tactical Training using state of the art Target Systems, as well as participating in the market for components – We believe there will be a spike of interest in designing and assembling automated Target Systems. Upon investigating, we’ve found that the components are not all that sophisticated, and considering the number of shooters there are with pertinent knowledge – its entirely possible and likely there will be DIY (do-it-yourself) activity.

In fact, we’re doing exactly that, and moving up the learning curve. Experimenting with some ideas involving piezo vibration sensors to monitor hits on a polymer target via the deflection of a target support. Also experimenting with connection to an Arduino Micro Controller for controlling a linear or rotary actuator.

We are tapping into supplier recommendations, and working hand in hand to prompt and facilitate discussion and DIY activity. It is our hope to connect with those with an interest, and have an open exchange of ideas, experiences, and lessons learned.

We hope to prompt and facilitate discussion of realistic tactical shooting scenarios, and how they might be created with an automated target system. For example, that polymer targets don’t provide visual or audible feedback, makes for more realistic tactical simulation. Lending to further realism, is a target system arbitrarily setting not only which and how many targets move into view, but also the number of target hits that must be sensed before the target drops from view.

Another topic requiring attention and discussion will be: methods of protecting electronics and mechanical gear from stray bullets. For example, plywood may provide some scenario “prop” value (maybe painted up like brick wall, etc.), and it may provide some structure to which to attach components, but it will not provide protection. The more valuable components are going to need to be strategically placed, or provided “bullet proof” protection. This will certainly add to weight and more complicated set up.

We look forward to comments from a diverse group of interested contributors, and welcome questions and suggestions, as well!
