Our mission is to create the safest live-fire training facilities on the planet.

Building shoot houses, firing ranges and MOUT Villages with Amidon Ballistic Concrete (ABC) provides the safest, easiest to repair and reconfigure facilities in the world. Using ABC is the most cost-effective method of creating live-fire facilities available and it has been tested and used extensively in many of the military’s most demanding special forces ranges.

Amidon Ballistic Concrete (ABC) sets the industry standard for ballistic concrete.

Our patented process provides the best ballistic performance in the market because of our durability, speed of installation, lower maintenance and life–cycle costs as well as flexible configurations for multiple training scenarios. When you use Amidon Ballistic Concrete, you bring your project to the next level. You can count on our safety, durability and best in class technology and rest assured you picked the premiere provider for your project.

SHOT SHOW | Las Vegas, NV

“… There was even one company,
Amidon Ballistic Concrete, that developed a version of concrete that
can absorb in excess of 1,000 bullets in a 2×2? area before the concrete fails.

Then a quick injection of their proprietary concrete into the failed area fixes it completely.
There is no more downtime than it takes to prepare the concrete and for it to cure.

Many ranges were very excited about watching their demo videos.
Anyway, on to the products that
I thought were most interesting. …” 

Custom Design and Development

Designed and Developed for Each Customer’s Needs

Modern live fire facilities must reflect actual scenarios in order to maximize training opportunities. We work carefully to understand each client’s needs and create a live fire facility reflecting those needs. This can include multiple types of buildings, numerous objectives, location-specific facades and highly realistic atmospherics such as motion activated targets and simulators for scent, sound and smoke.

Most Advanced Ballistic Concrete

ABC sets the industry standard for ballistic concrete because of it’s durability, speed of installation and repair, lower maintenance and life–cycle costs and best ballistic performance. In addition, our patented process provides flexibility in configurations allowing for ultimate flexibility to reflect multiple training scenarios.

Technology for Virtual Design

Amidon’s Simulated Tactical Arms Readiness Training (START) Program utilizes advanced software to (1) replicate the actual training facility with highly realistic 3D virtual simulation (2) provide interactive immersive-world, live fire training capabilities where trainees can move around as an avatar within the facility, shoot and be shot at — all virtually (3) control the entire facility including all video and audio recordings as well as effects, including sound, scent, smoke and targetry.

Multistory Capability and Modular Design

Amidon Ballistic Concrete® is unique among its competitors in its ability to create multiple types of ballistic-safe buildings in multiple stories. This has created a realism that is unmatched in ballistic concrete facilities. Additionally, ABC is modular, thereby permitting a wider range of configurations for multiple training scenarios.

Enhanced Realism

Amidon is able to combine a number of technologies to create a hyper-realistic environment including advanced 3D targetry designed to react to live fire training (motion-activated, hit detection capable), auditory and olfactory simulators and extensive realistic interior finishes and exterior facades which can replicate almost any locale.

At the heart of every live-fire structure we create is Amidon Ballistic Concrete® (ABC) — the world’s most advanced ballistic concrete.

Extensively tested by the U.S. Military, ABC has considerable benefits over traditional live-fire structures such as steel and rubber or gravel-encased systems. ABC safely absorbs the greatest capacity of rounds and is easily repaired, thereby reducing maintenance costs and downtime. It’s no wonder why the U.S. government has used Amidon Ballistic Concrete for the largest live-fire facilities in the world. It’s just that simple. We have deployed over 50,000 units of ABC in some of the most austere locations in the U.S.
