Marathon Targets has upgraded its fleet of autonomous robot targets (ART) and showcased the updated versions at the International/Interservice Training Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando.

Ralph Petroff, Marathon president for North America, told Janes that the ARTs are “intelligent robots that move and behave like a real enemy, to form a thinking, adaptive, and unpredictable opposing force”.

Each target moves on a four-wheeled chassis driven by an electric motor and when hit will stop and fall. Groups of targets will advance and retire, using cover, according to the effectiveness of the fire against them. Petroff said that the use of ARTs can “improve the hit rate on moving targets from 20% to 80% in a single session”.
