Gun Active Recoil (GAR®)

ACME Worldwide Enterprises, Inc. (“ACME”) announced today that the US. Patent Office has issued ACME a patent for the Gun Active Recoil (GAR®) technology that is core to the company’s line of ultra-realistic weapon training systems. In formal terms, the patent “covers the apparatus and method for a weapon simulator”. The patent recognizes the innovation behind ACME’s GAR® system that uses a unique, all-electric system to provide full-force recoil that is so critical for realistic weapons training.

The patent for invention number 8,690,575 was issued April 8, 2014 for a weapon simulator having a gun active recoil unit for use in simulating weapon recoil during weapon training and is programmable to dynamically alter a frequency of recoils per second when the weapon is in use.

The patent covers the technology in ACME’s GAR® weapon simulator and method of use for simulating weapon use including misfire, weapon sluggishness, runaway recoil and round cook off. It further covers the dynamic technology to provide replication of actual weapon mounts to vehicles such as helicopters, Bradley Fighting Vehicle and Abrams tanks.

“The patent confirms ACME’s role as an industry leader for weapon simulators.” said Randall Gurulé, President of ACME. “It details how we combine realistic recoil with reliable electrical components. The combination makes, effective, dependable trainers with plug-into-the-wall simplicity for customers.”
