Air Force Special Warfare Training Range
WHAT IF THE FIRST TIME YOU EVER HAD TO TAKE THE SHOT WAS WHEN YOU WERE BEING SHOT AT?
The Air Force Special Warfare Training Squadron recognized the need to provide more realistic weapons and tactic training in a live-fire environment. Its existing range offered no technology-aided targeting, realistic scenarios, or move and communicate environments, all of which are key training functions that ensure operational readiness. To address these needs, the first-of-its-kind ACTION Training Range was built. Its realistic and tactical nature provides innovative and effective weapons-training to advance the lethality, survivability, and readiness of its students.

And the best part? The entire space was designed and constructed in less than 1 year by utilizing our integrated Omega Construction Process.
The innovative prototype approach enabled by the OTA procurement pathway was critical to the success of this project, and to the advancement of the outcomes. These results could not have been achieved via a traditional contacting method.
The OTA process allowed for faster implementation of the specific requirements of the instructors. In normal construction projects the time between design and implementation is so long that when implementation happens, there are often different instructors and requirements. The collaborative nature of the OTA allowed instructors and other subject matter experts to be embedded with the design team which means the range meets their specific requirements.
Following the introduction of the action range, air force special warfare witnessed a 65% IMPROVEMENT IN EXERCISE COMPLETION TIME.

The ACTION Range consists of a 50m flat range and a shoot, move, communicate range. The flat range was designed for qualification, marksmanship, and fundamental movement and tactics.
The first-of-its-kind SMC range significantly increases the real-world scenario simulation and student competency with tactical firing and movement.
