Preparation Area

Sabre Ballistics, a Sydor Technologies company, provides complete ballistic testing and instrumentation systems designed to meet current, international certifications. Our global installations prove Sabre Ballistics to be one of the world’s most comprehensive ballistic test equipment suppliers and consultancy. And we provide integrated solutions that extend beyond just equipment—we consult and can deliver project specifications, range designs and construction, containerized ranges, installations, technical support and training.

Well-designed preparation areas are critical for safe and efficient ballistics and impact testing facilities. Ranges must include protected areas for proper storage of explosives—and the instruments, tools, and equipment necessary to conduct ballistic measurements, diagnostics, and testing. Sabre Ballistics can provide secure vaults using modern security technology for storage of weapons and propellants.
