ST-2000 PistolTrainer
ST-2000 PistolTrainer is an indoor marksmanship training and analysis unit attached to a service pistol Picatinny rail or rail adapter. The actual target distance starts from 3 to 50 meters (54 yards). Shots can be generated by dry firing or CO2 -recoiled. With continuous training you can improve and maintain your shooting skill and gain confidence in real situations.

ST-2000 Marksman
ST-2000 Marksman continues the heritage of Noptel´s famous ST-2000 product family originating in the early 1990´s. While maintaining the excellent accuracy and reliability of its predecessors, the Marksman is designed to be even more compact and user friendly for professional training. We have put over 25 years of experience into a superior package which corresponds efficiently with the objective of improved and up to date weapon training.

ST-2000 MilTrainer
ST-2000 MilTrainer is a marksmanship training and analysis device designed to be used outdoors. The real shooting distance is from 10 to 300 meters. Several shooters can be connected simultaneously to a single PC. The instructor can easily monitor the training of an individual shooter or the whole group. Concurrent use of blanks is also possible.

ST-2000 Sniper
Noptel ST-2000 Sniper is designed to be used for long range shooting training and analysis in genuine environment. The operating principle is the same as that of Noptel ST-2000 MilTrainer.

NOS4 training software
The original shooter training software - NOS4 - is the most professional, in depth analysis software ever made. Designed especially for demanding professional use. It is a typical Windows software product which is highly illustrative and versatile. It operates in several languages and covers all the common disciplines. New disciplines can be edited in with the special Gun & Target editor.

ST-21 Fighter
The Fighter system is an optimal system for small-scale action shooting training, allowing quick, easy setups with a variety of pop-up and turning targets. The simplicity of the system allows efficient training any time and anywhere.

ST-21 MiniFighter
The Noptel ST-21 MiniFighter is a member of the Noptel family of field training products. The MiniFighter is designed to fulfil the requirements of pop-up target training both on a shooting range and in urban area. Small size and light weight makes it practical trainer for pistols and other small arms.

A family of light-weight distance measurement sensors for indoor and outdoor use. Based on time-of-flight technology, allowing fast measurement of distances from natural surfaces. Small size, highly integrated technology.


  • Traffic control
  • Industrial measurements
  • Positioning
  • Security measurements
  • OEM applications
  • Portable measurement

Product informational files


Noptel has developed a range of integrated modules for the measurement of distance using time-of-flight technology. The modules and circuits are in use in many products and many application areas. The parts can often be used as sub-modules for a product under development, making the required development work more straightforward and reducing the time required to finish the work. This approach also gives the benefits of mass manufacturing, as the same parts can be utilized in several products.

Typical characteristics

  • Precision of a few millimetres
  • Measurement rate up to 25 kHz
  • Maximum range of several tens or hundreds of metres, depending on the precision needed
  • Small size, low weight, low power consumption
  • Suitable for harsh environments
  • Highly integrated technology (ASICs, hybrids and surface-mounted components)


The PSM-200 measuring device has been developed especially for measuring the position of a working machine. It is based on a laser transmitter and an optoelectronic receiver connected to the target. The operator directs the safe, visible laser beam at the receiver and locks it in a steady position. The receiver recognizes the beam on the optical target and measures its position accurately up to 500 times a second.


  • Traverse line of a vehicle
  • Displacement of the target
  • Deflection of a bridge
  • Alignment of a bar
  • Vibration of a bridge, mast or tower
  • Bending of a bar

The PSM-R/M2 measuring devices are meant for long distance displacement measurement applications outdoors. It is based on a combined led transmitter and an optoelectronic receiver which measures the movement of the reflecting target attached to the object to measure. The operator directs the safe light beam at the receiver and locks it in a steady position. The beam is reflected from the target back to the receiver where the receiver recognizes it and measures its position accurately up to 100 times a second.


  • Displacement of the object
  • Deflection of a bridge
  • Alignment of a bar
  • Bending of a bar

RAILTRACER is a measurement system for rail machinery. It has been especially developed for use with tamping machines for measuring the alignment of rails in accordance with specific guidelines, but it is also used with coaches, cranes and lightweight trolleys to measure the vertical and horizontal position of the rails.

The system employs the PSM-200 laser position measurement device to access the position of the rail in the horizontal and vertical planes using a receiver connected to a part of the vehicle, which is in direct contact with the rail. The system can be installed to many types of machinery and does not require additional automation.

The system can be used during the rehabilitation operation or to measure the rail position in order to plan operations in advance or inspect the result of the work afterwards.The laser beam of the transmitter can either be fixed or sweep over the receiver area in a given direction.

A PC allows the operator to monitor the straightness of the line rail graphically in both directions, set values for lifting, alignment and levelling and store measurement data in a numerical file as required.


  • Measurement device for tamping machines
  • Measurement of crane rails
  • Measurement of welded joints
  • Measurement of rail profile
  • Measurement of rail surface roughness
