Artillery Training System "ATS" and Mortar Training System "MTS"

With ATS, the advantages of large-calibre firing and simulators are combined, while their disadvantages are eliminated. One can select from three different charge stages equipped with point-detonating or delayed-action fuses. Mortar crews can be trained highly efficiently with MTS. The reusable practice dummy falls to the ground after just a few metres, while the small-calibre projectile reaches the target aimed at. A crack and a cloud of smoke clearly mark the impact in the target terrain.
Among our competences is also the professionally correct and proper disposal of conventional ammunition, civil explosives and pyrotechnical products.
