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.
Modern live fire facilities must reflect actual scenarios to maximize training opportunities. We work carefully to understand each client’s requirements and create a live fire facility reflecting those conditions. 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.
ABC sets the industry standard for ballistic concrete because of its durability, speed of installation and repair, lower maintenance and life–cycle costs, and the best ballistic resilience. In addition, our patented process provides for a variety of configurations providing flexibility to reflect multiple training scenarios.
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.
Amidon Ballistic Concrete® (ABC) is unique among its competitors in its ability to create multiple types of ballistic-safe buildings including 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.
Amidon can combine multiple 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 location.
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; rest assured you picked the premiere provider for your project.
Over a decade of intense independent testing shows that Amidon Ballistic Concrete has received
over 70,000 test rounds delivered to over 50,000 ABC blocks with zero failures.
