Interestingly enough I found out about Laser Ammo while I was at the CoolFire booth. One of the guys from Laser Ammo had staged number of their small, laser-reactive targets (Interactive Multi Training Electronic Target System) to be used with the CO2 operated laser trainers (which I might add made for a super fun and addictive session). It was interesting enough that I was forced to visit their booth to see what else they had.
Like a number of other exhibitors that were hawking laser training systems, Laser Ammo had a wide booth and a projector and sounds of simulated steel being shot. They had a much wider variety of items than the other vendors I had visited to that point.
In addition to the little targets that were at CoolFire they had a few other small target trainers as well as their version of a camera (and projector) system for indoor practice. What was interesting about their software is that you could easily define the “hit” area (using their software) on the static shoot allowing you to use any target you want. Their video based system was fixed, having a set number of games/challenges (it didn’t appear to allow for inclusion of your own video). None of the software solutions I saw all week had a native OSX Client (Linux), only Microsoft Windows (though you could run the software in a virtual machine).
Laser Ammo also had a number of training guns some based around AirSoft (allowing for removable laser to be mounted to the platform via a fixed “muzzle device”). They have a solution that fits inside the barrel of your personal weapon and they also had a “blue gun” style trainer that also reinforces good trigger control by beeping if you finger the trigger without taking a shot.
Overall I was most impressed with their small targets, and can see a training system incorporating them, as well as the CO2 barrel/laser from CoolFire and the shot analyzer from MantisX.
