TFB friend Lionel attended the recent B&T Police & Military Day 2015 event, and covered some of the products exhibited there. Regarding Simunition’s booth, he writes:
At Simunition presented two interesting systems:
The first one based on circular modules incorporating color diode array. These modules can be integrated in or mounted on a target shot course simply with a Velcro, for example) These modules are controlled by a small computer, it controls the sequence in which the modules should light and the sequence can be changed at will. The firing sequence called on each module to two projectiles hit the target to go to the next (when the two impacts recorded the target goes out of itself) This type of training is done through a munitions FX type.
The second is a kit for launching standalone or UBGL grenades for training areas as a gun shooting stand (for training) or training areas (schools, train station, airport, embassy, etc ..) with ammunition FX free type marker.The kit consists of a metal ring with a seal which is mounted in the barrel, an interface in a white synthetic material and a FX munition (with or without marker depending on the training area). The firing sequence is exactly the same as with a standard munition, only the distance changes. Once training is completed a synthetic piece goes into the barrel with a small rope to remove the metal ring and shoot again standard ammunition.
