Target Detection and Exercises

The material contained in this appendix provides the detailed information on the skills required for proper target detection and identification. The exercises contained herein will train and sustain those skills.


Target detection is the process of locating, marking, and determining the range to combat targets. For most soldiers, finding the target can be a greater problem than hitting it. Target detection must be conducted as part of individual training and tactical exercises and must be integrated into night live-fire exercises. The observation lines on target detection ranges approximate the location a soldier might occupy when in combat. Provisions must be made to incorporate night target detection.
