Each MoST shooting range comprises the following modules:
All modules exposed to live fire are designed as welded frames, combined with sufficiently strong, hard-wearing steel sheet able to resist piercing. The modules are delivered separately to the installation site, where they are assembled on a level and hard-paved surface, aligned, and combined into a single facility. With the modules assembled, the integrated facility, the side walls and the ceiling surface are lined with façade panels to ensure sufficient thermal and noise insulation performance. The MoST is ready for operation once connected to an electrical power source and furnished with the required fixtures.
This is the fire control room, and houses the range master’s control workstation, including a display unit for viewing the CCTV feeds from the firing lanes, and controls for operating ventilation, lights, sound and other equipment. The logistic module features an external door, and a bulletproof door internal leading to the communication module. The logistic module configuration is customizable, and may be expanded to include a medical station, a briefing room, a locker room, etc.
This module provides a passageway between the logistic module(s) and the shooting stand module. The communication module features an Air Wall expansion chamber, which supplies fresh air to the shooting range facility. The internal lining of the module comprises anti-ricochet panels.
Shooting stall module
This module houses the shooting stand booths, each separated by removable partition walls. Each shooting stand has an overhead lamp and CCTV IP cameras. A target carrier control panel can be installed in each shooting stand. The internal lining of the module comprises anti-ricochet panels.
The 2.5 m long shooting modules are combined to form the firing lane zone, for firing lanes of 25, 50, 100 or 200 m. The internal lining of the modules comprises anti-ricochet panels. Mobile bullet traps can be supplied and installed in the firing lane zone. When deployed in parallel with both side walls, they create a 180° firing sector; however, armour-piercing, tracer and incendiary rounds cannot be used.
Bullet trap module
This module features granular bullet trap fitted across the entire module width. The bullet trap module also features pre-installed top and bottom connections for the ventilation ductwork. The internal lining of the module comprises anti-ricochet panels. The granular bullet trap has a capacity of approximately 100,000 shots per firing lane. The bullet traps need periodic maintenance for continued use.
This module uses two coupled units, each 2.5 m wide. The module houses the heat recovery air supply, exhaust unit and ventilation filter units. The latter have a filter separation efficiency of 99.9%. Aside from its unique air filtration system, the AHU also features heat recovery systems. This significantly improves the energy efficiency of the electric air heating in winter and air conditioning in summer. The automatic controls of the ventilation system maintain steady indoor air parameters and comfort in all seasons.
