LOMAH (Location Of Miss And Hit) target systems use acoustic detectors to calculate the precise location of supersonic shots as they travel past.  The systems can tackle both single shots and sustained bursts of ammunition within two meters of the LOMAH equipped target.  They provide an effective and sustainable mechanism for testing and evaluating marksmanship performance.

Location of Miss and Hit


Sometimes referred to as PLS (Projectile Location System) or AMS (Automated Marking System), the Location Of Miss And Hit device works independently of the target medium, and graphically displays the location of the projectile as it hits or misses the target.  Precise X and Y positions are displayed along with the graphical representation  The LOMAH system is designed to be used either independently, or integrated with existing static or dynamic targets.

Typically a target or silhouette is used alongside the LOMAH system, but only as a target for the marksman to aim at.  The LOMAH target system allows both supervisor and marksman to quickly gain feedback and evaluate performance.  The technology allows for more efficient use of the firing range, and eliminates the requirement for scoring staff near the line of fire.
