Marathon Live Fire Robots address a fundamental training gap:
the first time shooters fire live ammunition at a realistic human
like enemy target is in a real battle. Developed in conjunction
with the Australian Department of Defence, live fire robots are
now in use with elite forces around the world. With autonomous
Live Fire Robots, soldiers train the way they fight against agile
and unpredictable human like targets, with live ammunition.
HUMAN - LIKE
The Robots have human size, shape, and speed.
ALL TRAINING LEVELS
The Robots can run day and night, rain
or shine – while staying at all times
within designated safety zones.
EASY TO INTEGRATE
All levels of expertise can be
accommodated: from new recruits to
elite shooters. All can benefit from
shooting at unpredictable, realistic
human like targets.
In addition to moving marksmanship, the system
enables training of other essential combat skills
such as shoot/no-shoot decision making, rules of
engagement, fire control - all contributing to
reality based training.
Robots are autonomous so they can
“think” for themselves, move and
behave like real people. For example,
when one Robot is “killed” the other
robots react by scattering to the
nearest cover. After a pause, the
“survivors” will emerge and
VARIETY OF SCENARIOS
Scenarios can be short or long, simple
or complex, repeatable or
unpredictable. The system can be used
for intensive training on specific skills
or long-term endurance exercises, with
any number of Robots.
REACTIVE TO HITS
On being shot, the Robots provide
instant visual feedback by stopping
and dropping its mannequin. It also
gives auditory feedback which can be
customized as per the requirements of
