STERELA Defense & Security

STERELA is a French company specialised in developing equipment for weapons training and firing-range practice.
Our agile, versatile products can be adapted to every type of situation and circumstance (open terrain, shooting stands, field ranges, combat villages, etc.). Our entire range of target holders can be operated using autonomous battery power or connected to the mains power supply.

Know more

Fixed and movable target holders for shooting practice.

Our products can be used for shots with every calibre, from the plastic balls used in "AIRSOFT" to anti-tank missiles.
Our target holders can be equipped with "infantry" and/or "anti-tank" 2D and 3D targets.
Shooting ranges can be custom-managed on demand or use pre-established, pre-recorded scenarios. A single remote control can control several dozen target holders.


The equipment can operate autonomously (battery) or using the mains power supply. Due to their versatility, several pieces of equipment can be combined to provide various use cases.


The equipment can be installed permanently or temporarily. Lightweight and autonomous, our products can be used for every type of situation.


The target equipment can be left in place permanently and operate using a mains power supply or battery. All types of training and configuration are possible (light weapons, anti-tank weapons).


The autonomous and lightweight target equipment allows urban infrastructures to be used.

INFANTRY targetry

STERELA is acknowledged around the world for the quality of its firing-practice equipment and particularly for its wide variety of firing-range solutions (fixed and mobile, heavy and light weapons).
Our products are agile, flexible, versatile and compatible with all the educational and infrastructure requirements for training and shooting practice.
Our ability to integrate moving targets and develop training scenarios means we recreate conditions that are as close to reality as possible. In addition to using their weapons, the trainees call on the reflexes they will need in real combat conditions.

ANTI-TANK targetry

Anti-tank firing practice uses two types of conditions: shooting at fixed and moving targets. These conditions are factored into our range of products, which allow you to use live ammunition or training ammunition (light weapons, cannon fire, missiles, etc.).
Particularly adapted to extreme conditions of use, our products have been designed to remain in the field, due to their autonomy and robustness.

The targets are controlled using simple, robust, transportable remote controls.

Our target equipment provides a great degree of flexibility in terms of use and configuration and can therefore be adapted to meet every requirement. 
Our remote-control units are not just simple devices that enable operators to control the movement of the target holder. They also allow them to display and record feedback to assess and analyse the shooter's performance. 
A remote-control unit can manage several target holders and different models. 
The target holders can be used in full-automatic mode, remote controlled, or according to specific scenarios.

Expert Target-equipment Centre

More than just training

"A demonstration is worth more than a million words" (Charles WILLEFORD),
so, based on this principle, we have created a specific area devoted to demonstrating and using our products in real-life situations. This area is made available to our trainees during the training sessions organised on our premises. It is a useful tool for checking the coherence and roll-out of the scenarios created in the classroom, and can be used during maintenance training to ensure a piece of equipment is working correctly after repair.

Our trainers are field technicians. They are in permanent contact with our customers on maintenance contracts. Inside the company, they receive technical support from our "product" manager and the design office.
