Our remarkable range of ThermBright Thermal targets for Infantry are fulfilling a number of urgent operational requirements for the British Army and many other customers worldwide. ThermBright Thermal targets are made from advanced materials, have natural thermal contrast properties and are completely unpowered. The unique ThermBright material works on the principle of reflected energy from space.
Compared to traditional heated targets, ThermBright targets are much more effective against thermal imagers. ThermBright targets have also proven to take ten times the amount of hits before degradation. Our Passive Thermal Targets will work day and night, in overcast conditions, and in rain or snow. They are also easily patched up in the field to repair and reuse.
Thermbright Thermal targets for Infantry are the most efficient and cost-effective choice for infantry target training.
ThermBright Thermal targets for Infantry will satisfy the clear requirement for thermal targets during training. Their most noteworthy ability being that they can be used for both day and night-time training.
Thermbright are proud to be able to support the training and development of combat forces.
The versatility of the ThermBright range of targets results in their use for all types of surveillance and target acquisition (STA) systems. Thermbright targets will work with most STA systems including image intensifiers and thermal imagers.
ThermBright is the simplest and most cost-effective way of providing thermal targets for weaponry using thermal or fusion sights.
The targets can be manufactured in most shapes and sizes including photo-realistic thermal targets (PRTT). The main benefit of the ThermBright range of UNPOWERED targets is that they can be used anywhere without base facilities. The targets will work night AND day and even during full cloud cover. The targets have natural thermal contrast properties, meaning they reflect the cold energy of space, which makes the position or appearance of the sun irrelevant.
All our thermal targets are available in normal and reverse polarities, we also have a small range of PRTT (photo-realistic targets) such as those shown below.
We are only able to show a small selection of the targets we have available. If you wish to know more about targets available to and in use by the US army please contact Mike Pingel the ThermBright USA representative. For all other countries please contact your local representative.

Benefits of ThermBright Infantry Targets
ThermBright targets can be almost any size or shape. The smaller targets can be produced with a self-adhesive backing making them easy to transport and setup. However the larger targets are more suitable for PVC backing and then mounted onto a fluted polypropylene, plywood, metal or plastic surface.
ThermBright targets work day and night and in inclement weather conditions. This has been proven during testing undergone world-wide in countries as diverse as Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Alaska and Australia.
During recent testing ThermBright Thermal Targets were shown to work effectively from -20 to +40 degrees centigrade.

A common feature to all ThermBright Targets is that they can be repaired and reused by the use of ThermBright Repair Patches, which are available in sizes for both small arms and tank fire. ThermBright targets are supplied in rolls making shipping and storage an easy process.
ThermBright Thermal targets can be made in almost any size or shape subject to our customer’s requirements. This includes our PRTT and 3D thermal targets. The targets can be set up hours, days or even weeks ahead of the exercise. Furthermore individually designed thermal identification features can be easily added to any target to ensure any battlefield scenario can be catered for.
PVC backing is recommended for large targets such as tanks and this type has built in eyelets to allow the ThermBright target to be draped over the original target backer.
The larger targets such as tanks which ThermBright produce can be either modular in design, this gives simple block outlines, or to have a detailed outline, enabling identification of individual vehicles. Additionally we have 3D targets or photo-realistic targets (PRTT).

Javelin missile strike
Heat seeking missiles such as Javelin WILL make a thermal “lock-on” against Thermbright unpowered passive thermal targets.
3d Tank Targets
Thermbright 3d tank targets allow for training scenarios where a more realistic view is required. Illustrations here show Thermal and Design Views. Due to the targets being 3d they can be viewed from any direction without the need for movement of the target setup.
PRTT Tank Targets
The illustration shows a PRTT Tank Target. Visible and normal and reverse polarity thermal views.
Because the target is a photo realistic one, the visible view gives a life-like looking target. The PRTT targets are available in normal and reverse polarity.
