E-blanks is a fully-patented, highly effective, cost efficient, and environmentally friendly training system that realistically simulates the firing of ammunition with recoil, sound, and muzzle flash. E-blanks™ replaces blank ammunition to support training exercises that currently use blanks, dry fire, and vocal firing simulation. Using advanced electronics to replicate not only the sound of rounds being fired but also weapon recoil and muzzle flash, E-blanks™ simulates the realistic environment of firing. This solution has been developed and tested to military standards; it trains where End Users need to train, in all environments. E-blanks™ is currently available for AR-15 weapon-types, with a system for the AK-47 estimated by the end of CY17 and additional form factor development on-going. E-blanks™ system components closely approximate the weight of the weapon components they are replacing.
