After fielding two out of four ranges for the US Army, the US Government has decided to update its training doctrine to now include location of miss-and-hit (LOMAH) electronic shot detection system.
This will result in a faster turnover of trainees, with individual shooters achieving training goals faster with LOMAH and zeroing speeding up significantly.
For example, 16 shooters spent three days on the range to qualify, but were not successful. However, once on the LOMAH range, it took just four hours and all 16 shooters passed the training objective,
Zeroing and marksman training do not have to be done subsequently. Each shooter can proceed according to their own speed.
Zeroing is usually very time consuming, requiring shooting, grouping, verifying, adjusting, shooting and verifying. With a LOMAH system (including a monitor), zeroing can be done without ever leaving the firing position, in next to no time.
The monitor guides the shooter through the procedure, provides failsafe instructions (clicks to correct/zero) and allows it to zero promptly.
With a shot sensor, there is no need for more scoring of shots from a neighboring lane, with each lane proceeding independently.
Shooters do not have to wait until the slowest/least accurate shooter has achieved the training objective.
In addition, there is no need to go downrange and verify shots, with no scoring personnel required to be positioned there.
