Solicitation Number: F3G5GA4204A001-MuzzleFlashSimulator
The Government is looking for information on companies that can provide a Muzzle Flash Simulator that, at a minimum, has the following: 1) System must be portable and not permanently mounted to any live fire pop-up target scoreable range 2) System must be able to simulate a variety of enemy engagements, including but not limited to single shot fire, three round burst fire, sporadic fire, and fire/reload/fire 3) System must be actuated by a switch that is mounted to the lifting mechanism of the target. I.E, when the target is down the system does not engage, when the target is up it will simulate the required engagement until the target is hit, at which point the target will drop and the system ends the simulation 4) System must be able to be powered by standard 110V AC plug 5) System must be all weather capable 6) System that allows one control box with two led light shot simulators

Movie prop companies will probably end up with this contract since they already specialize in these devices.

Since there was no mention of sound, I assume the simulator was to be viewed from aircraft, where the pilot wouldn't hear much of anything even with live rounds. Well unless hit.
No blanks, just LEDs per the request.
Making the flashes isn't that hard, but this thing had to detect when it was hit and then stop flashing.
Now I admit something that flashed and made gun sounds would be a deterrent at the Nellis border. But you wouldn't hear the rounds hit nearby. Then again, they could be warning shots.
