MACS has been developed by the US Army as an inexpensive part-task marksmanship trainer (Figure C-10).
The system consists of a Commodore 64 microcomputer, 13-inch color monitor, specially designed long-distance light pen, and mount, which attaches to the M16 rifle. (Some versions use a permanent mount on a demilitarized rifle.) The system is activated by a program cartridge, which contains several training exercises.
