The Targabot moves up and down, left to right, and it can extend, retract, move in an arc, or disappear in one area and reappear in another from behind a ballistic steel barrier, also available separately.

Close-up of the Targabot Control Panel, which features eight different pre-programmed modes of operation, from slow to lightening-speed fast, as well as a USB Port for the user to make his/her own personal sequence of movements via a free, easy-to-use PC program.
The Targabot is seen here fully assembled with a standard issue target and on an adjustable steel stand, which is available separately, but the lightweight and portable unit can also be hung on any surface, including a common post, wall, or even a tree.
The Targabot is small, compact, and can fit into a military issue backpack or a similar bag for easy transport and deployment.
The Targamite Targabot Target Training System is designed for the shooter whose goal is to become more comfortable engaging the unexpected out in the real world. An individual who desires to achieve the skill and knowledge of a comfortable shooter who can engage in any unexpected situation out in the real world. That is the purpose of the Targabot – to build muscle memory in your shooting skills to apply when things begin to move out there. We do this by combining standard targets with programmable robotics.
Our end-user community would naturally be trainers within law enforcement, armed forces and self-defense communities, but would also embrace shooters who, for whatever reason, want more challenging and engaging target shooting experiences that could potentially pay dividends in an increasingly unpredictable environment.
