and find it extremely hard to see what their shoot total is mid-way
through the shoot.
Army Cadets at Newcastle Under Lyme School often use their .22 ranges
and find it extremely hard to see what their shoot total is mid-way
through the shoot. They cannot view the target through the sights on
the rifles, as the sights are iron sights. A solution is required
whereby this problem can be cured, and the individual shooters can
view their statistics with minimal movement required.
I am to design a system whereby shooters will be able to view their
score for that particular shoot session and also view their statistics
upon the same piece of machinery.
The primary output of this product is to be 2 seven-segment displays,
which show you the overall score of the shooter after each shot. The
secondary output of this product is to be more seven-segment displays,
which display relevant pieces of information regarding the shooters
statistics, in accordance with their score.
The seven segment displays which are to be used will be of varied
sizes as the primary seven segment displays are to be larger than the
secondary seven segment displays as to let the user view his or her
score with great ease.
The approximate cost of the product is to be something around the
region of about £25 as to cover the cost of manufacture, components,
storage and the battery. The exact cost at this time remains oblivious
to me but this is a rough estimate of what the final cost may be.
The ease of use is inevitable as this product is to be used primarily
by cadets from the Newcastle Under Lyme School CCF; therefore complex
manual operations conducted by the user are not required within the
It is unclear at this time to determine what the customers will be
prepared to pay as no primary research has been conducted into the
matter. In the coarse of this coursework primary research will be
conducted and questions such as "How much will the customers be
prepared to pay?" will be answered.
This product will be designed to be primarily used on a 30m range
therefore I will incorporate 3.5mm jacks within the casing which will
lead to the pressure pads which are to be approximately 30m away, but
this is also dependant on where the product is placed on the range.
The pressure pads will be placed behind the target in a manner by
which they can still sense the impact of the .2 rounds and at the same

The different sizes of the seven segment displays used are to be
13.2mm and 100mm. The 13.2mm displays are to be used to display the
shooters' statistics and the 100mm displays are to be used to display
the shooters overall score. They need to be this size as to let the
shooter se his or her score with great ease.
The size of this product is unknown at this stage but this will be
mentioned in the specifications. The product will not however be any
larger than a piece of A4 paper which measures at approximately 290mm
This product is to be powered by a 9v battery as it does not require a
power input of a mains connection which is 230v ~ 240v ac. The 9v
power supply should be sufficient in providing power for the seven
segment displays in relation to how often the product is to be used,
therefore giving providing a good battery life.
There is a number of different sized pressure pads to be used as they
will then be able to determine the score of the shots fired. By this I
mean that the smallest pressure pad will be able to show a score which
is the highest score etc.
Ease of fitting is to be required as the primary users of this product
are to be cadets aged between 13 and 18 who may or may not have a
sufficient technological knowledge, therefore a means needs to be
devised by which this product can be fixed securely to a wall with
To be able to make this product worthy of sale it will have to be
extremely reliable. There are three initial areas of production, which
will make this a reliable product. They are having a strong casing,
having a waterproof casing & the electronics it contains. The casing
has to be fairly strong as to prevent any breakage of the product even
before it has been placed securely on the wall. A water-resistant
casing is required as to eliminate the threat of any moisture actually
damaging the circuitry within the product. The final aspect is the
electronics its will contain. These have to be accurate as to prevent
failure of operation by the product. For the electronics not to fail I
will have to carefully plan the circuitry to a degree where I will
have to distinguish what the inputs, processing's & outputs of the
circuit are. Once these three areas are complete to a great degree of
satisfaction, the product will be much more reliable than I did not
take these into consideration.
The pressure pads will have to be able to sense the force of the
rounds fired to it but the pressure pads will have to be placed in a
manner in which the pressure pads do not get damaged during the shoot.
They will be feeling the force of .22 rounds and therefore it will be
relatively easy for me to avert such an incident where the pressure
pads are damaged, as only a small thickness of wood is required to
penetrate the rounds, which is used by the cadets to penetrate the .22
