The Department of Defense has chosen an ARCAS range to fill their need for a 14-lane modular small arms range (MSAR) on Offutt Airforce Base, south of Omaha, Nebraska. This multi-million-dollar project will be fulfilled by CoverSix, a leading manufacturer of protective modular structures for the government and security sectors, and Action Target, the top manufacturer of shooting ranges, targets and related supplies. —
This is the first modular range delivered to be fully compliant with the Department of Defense’s new Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) for ranges. The modular structure provides a completely open range, with a 72 ft clean span and no internal columns, walls or other obstructions. This range is the first of its kind without the limitations associated with the containerized shooting ranges that have previously been available. The ARCAS modular shooting ranges offer the same capabilities as traditional ‘brick and mortar’ ranges and provide a reduced project time.
These built-to-order shooting range facilities ship to sites worldwide and require minimal site preparation. Officials with Offutt have selected an ARCAS DLX range, but the line includes the following:
ARCAS EXT is a modular shooting range available in single and extended module configurations that make it easy to build a range up to three lanes wide and 100m long. Standard features include floor-to-ceiling AR500 steel for critical coverage, steel or rubber bullet traps, advanced target systems, enhanced range control, sound treatment, and range lighting.
ARCAS MBL is a self-contained mobile firearms training range designed for long life on the open road. This mobile shooting range is 53 ft long and complies with US DOT regulations while maintaining strict ballistic and environmental standards. The onboard HEPA-filtered ventilation system exceeds OSHA and NIOSH standards. Noise reduction treatments make the sound of training comfortable inside and out. A single ARCAS MBL can accommodate up to three shooters with a 7m or 10m training distance. The dual trailer configuration provides 25m training.
ARCAS DLX offers an improved method of providing a modular small arms range (MSAR) by turning the modules sideways to gain more space with fewer units. These purpose-built structures support every component and eliminate vertical columns to provide a true cross-lane tactical training environment. Each ARCAS DLX module is 13 ft wide, up to 72 ft long and offers as many as 14 100m lanes of uninterrupted training space.
The ARCAS DLX accommodates wider lanes and higher ceilings while meeting Department of Defense Unified Facility Criteria (UFC) 4‑179-02 for indoor small arms firing ranges. This range comes ready to deliver your specific training requirements with Action Target's suite of advanced shooting range equipment.
In addition to the Offutt AFB award, CoverSix and Action Target have also been awarded a contract to deliver a 3-lane ARCAS EXT to an overseas base with the Department of Defense.
