Abstract : A target system is disclosed which is responsive to and indicative of the hits and areas of near miss of laser light pulses that have been shot from a laser weapon aimed thereat, be it a simulated gun or other device, by a marksman. In addition to the bullseye indicia on the face thereof, said target system comprises a quadrant arrangement of laser light detectors that are located on the front thereof in such manner as to permit them to sense the aforesaid laser light pulses. Said detectors are connected in unique combination with data processing channels, programmed timers, a preprogrammed read only memory logic circuit, and an array of lights disposed around and near the perimeter of the target face thereof. The latter mentioned lights light up in accordance with the approximate location of the hits of said laser light pulses relative to the bullseye of the target face thereof, thereby indicating either a hit or the direction of a near miss to said marksman.
