Abstract:

The Army is considering the procurement of the Infantry Remoted Target System IRETS as a replacement for current Record Fire ranges. It is important to know the capabilities and limitations of the IRETS. This report presents the findings of comparisons of the IRETS specifications and descriptive threat oriented criteria. It concludes that the IRETS is an upgrading of older marksmanship evaluation concepts. Further, unless corrections of problems and limitations are made, the system should not be viewed as representing a quantum leap from current Record Fire ranges to a threat oriented Record Fire facility.
