In a bid to design and produce electronic target system (ETS), a modern training aid for enhancing marksmanship of the defence and paramilitary forces in live field firing exercises, BEL has inked a technical pact with Council of Scientific and Industrial Research’s National Aerospace Laboratories (CSIR-NAL).

Designed by CSIR-NAL, ETS is a technically superior and cost-effective solution for police, paramilitary and defence personnel looking at acquiring sharp shooting skills in small fire arms as well as honing proficiency in tactical field firing. With this technology, BEL is targeting a market of about 1500 lanes.

At present after firing a shot, a shooter is unable to instantly gauge if he has hit or missed the target and by what margin and needs to move near the target to examine the results. ETS helps in instantly providing the hit location through a display, positioned beside him.

CSIR-NAL has developed two technologies for ETS — Detection and Hit Visualisation using Acoustic N-wave Identification (DHVANI) and Acoustic Based Hit Identification and Analysis System (ABHIAS) — using which the shooter can instantly see, after each shot, the result on an electronic display placed nearby. It enables the shooter to constantly self-monitor his progress and take remedial steps to improve his accuracy.
