Company Profile

Theissen Training Systems (TTS) is one of the leading manufacturers of live-fire training applications, with production sites in Germany (TTS GmbH), Belgium (TTS International NV) and North America (TTS Inc.).

We develop, produce and install complete training range systems for Small Arms Ranges, Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) facilities, and Combined Arms Live-Fire Exercise (CALFEX) Ranges, that include Tank and Attack Helicopter operations.

For more than a century, the founder and his family have been active in engineering and production. Since 1934 the name Theissen has stood for leading designers and producers of target appliances of all kind. Back in the early days, the company was called “Fritz Theissen & Söhne”, and later “Theissen Fassaden- und Maschinenbau GmbH”.

One of Theissen’s departments was specialized in targetry. Due to Theissen’s good quality and long presence in the targetry business, some users call a pop-up target mechanism a Theissen (pronounced Tyson), and are in fact referring to the founder’s name. In 1993 the management decided to focus exclusively on targetry products; thus Theissen Training Systems was established. 



Theissen Training Systems is an alliance of companies with core competencies in targetry appliances for small sports air guns to tank and anti-tank ammunitions, hit evaluation, electronic scoring, ballistic instrumentation and internal ballistics.
