Industry News: Plinker Systems

Here's what we know about 'em.

Dual movers are used in several environments:

Law enforcement agencies use Dual Movers to aid in teaching Judgmental Use of Force scenarios which unfortunately today, are so common when LEO officers encounter suspects who may or may not be concealing weapons. Municipalities are facing more legal battles as suits are being brought questioning agencies’ teaching methods and competencies of officers. Dual Movers reinforce muscle memory as students experience shoot/don’t shoot scenarios in an iterative process.

Most law enforcement organizations require officers to “qualify” at least once per year. Dual Movers may also be easily moved from shoot houses and scenario bays for linear square range drills which are still so prevalent in most police forces in the United States today.

Dual Movers are operated wirelessly via a tablet computer that controls pneumatics which initiate independent movement of each respective target. Unlimited scenarios may be created and saved for future training classes. The targets may be triggered manually or by using activators such as pressure pads, motion sensors or proximity sensors. Line-of-sight distances of over 1,000 yards may also be utilized for sniper training scenarios.
