range officer informs the pit NCOIC of the next exercise and any special instructions for target operation — for example, 1The next firing will be for zero. Mark targets after each three-round group shot, or for slow fire, The next firing will be ten rounds, slow fire. Mark targets after each shot."

RATELOs relay commands to the pits and pass on special instructions to target operators as requested by the assistant instructors. RATELOs never identify a firer on a certain firing point. The command MARK TARGET NUMBER_ indicates that the target has been fired upon but has not been withdrawn for marking.
