Marathon was founded by three PhDs from the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney. Marathon smart targets address a fundamental training gap: the first time shooters fire live ammunition at a realistic moving target is in a firefight. Developed in conjunction with the Australian Department of Defence, smart targets are now used by shooters around the world.

Marathon shipped the world's first smart targets for live-fire training in 2008. Smart targets are powered by cutting-edge robotics technology, delivered in a bullet-proof, easy-to-use package. Marathon's targets enable armed forces to train with an unprecedented level of realism.

With smart targets, soldiers train the way they fight: against unpredictable moving targets, with live ammunition.

Marathon robotic targets are autonomous -- no joystick control is required. This key technology enables: Realistic, challenging and unpredictable motion; Responsive behaviour; Minimum infrastructure.

Marathon has offices in Sydney, Australia and Columbus, Georgia.
