Location of Miss and Hit (LOMAH)
As the long-standing industry leader in military live fire shooting ranges, Meggitt Training Systems designs, equips and installs range systems on military bases throughout the world. The Location of Miss and Hit (LOMAH) system adds shot scoring to improve training. LOMAH is available as a retrofit capable kit or fully integrated into the Meggitt target lifter product line. This means easy and quick installation with little downtime and lower cost of installation.
The system measures the precise time of a bullet’s supersonic shock wave passing over the microphone sensor array. Attached below the height of the lifter and encased with ballistic protection, the microphone array is positioned so the system is not damaged by bullets. Sensors can be arranged differently depending on their use (i.e., SIT, SAT, MIT or MAT).
Meggitt’s LOMAH system registers the passing of the bullet, computing the bullet’s location (X, Y coordinate) and presents a graphical image of shot location on the target, appearing on the shooter’s Firing Point Computer (FPC). This provides the shooter and instructor with immediate feedback of the shot location via the FPC on the firing line. The bullet’s measured location provides the shooter the information needed to accurately display shot grouping and zeroing of weapons more effectively, resulting in improved marksmanship skills. Single shots and bursts are recorded as well. The system can be used for a wide variety of ammunition, from .22 to .50 caliber.
