Low Maintenance Design. A key design element for Pilot was low cost of ownership. To this extent, common wear items were strengthened or designed out.


Easy to Use, Hidden Target Clamp

  • No Exposed Parts: The clamp is recessed to prevent bullet impacts. This reduces wear and range maintenance.
  • One Hand Operation: The clamp releases easily with the press of one hand, and automatically closes when a new backer is inserted.
  • Specially Designed Backer: Economic 2-part backer eliminates the need for metal downrigger and enhances a shooter’s experience.


Strike Watch™ Technology

Pilot incorporates advanced technology and design to automatically protect your range equipment.

  • Errant Shot Detection: A Patent Pending technology that detects when the carrier is shot and automatically takes steps to protect the retriever. Upon detecting a shot on the carrier, the session is paused and the shooter warned of the errant shot.
  • Customizable Protection Protocol: After subsequent shots on the carrier the shooter’s session is automatically terminated and the target returns home. This technology minimizes the damage untrained or malicious shooters can inflict on range equipment.
  • Smartrange Axis Notification: After session termination due to carrier strikes, the range staff is notified on the SmartRange Axis control screen. The range staff can decide whether they reinstate or revoke lane time.


Drive cables and downrange bus bars are a common failure point in the industry, leading to lost revenue. Pilot is completely wireless resulting in maximum uptime, revenue, and training.


The Pilot retriever was engineered to withstand the harsh conditions of an indoor range.

  • Armored: The front deflector plate utilizes 3/8-inch AR500 steel with a carefully engineered angle to deflect both rifle and handgun bullet impacts.
  • Reinforced Side Impact Plates: The Pilot carrier’s sides and back are covered with 11-gauge steel to deflect side impacts and prevent splatter damage.

Streamlining The User Experience. Pilot ensures customers are spending the maximum amount of time shooting and not waiting on equipment.
