XCALIBR extends and redefines traditional marksmanship training.  Our innovative data capture, analysis and feedback system unlocks significant performance improvements by seamlessly connecting any/all firearms training (dry drills; blank firing; Airsoft; SimunitionTM; static ranges; live firing tactical training etc…) into a single measurable performance continuum.  This ‘evolve to open’ approach extends in-service capabilities, integrates novel systems and exploits the un-tapped data they generate. XCALIBR brings cutting-edge real-time data insights to traditional marksmanship training.

Problem Space

Building on proven success

We have taken the success gained during our DASA funded SiET Project and continued the growth of this user-focused capability. Now fielded into the British Army’s Infantry Training Centre, Catterick, XCALIBR is proving to accelerate and enhance marksmanship training for all users. With the ability to aggregate results from the simplest of individual activities, through into complex live firing tactical training events, XCALIBR is part of the single measurement environment that we at Cervus aspire to support; understanding the individual contribution to collective performance is built-in from the start.

One of the key parts of Future Soldier is preparing our forces to fight. This system allows us to train our marksmanship skills better. If we shoot better, we’re more likely to defeat our adversaries..

SO2 Combat Training


XCALIBR is a minimally invasive system that, for low physical burden (a mobile phone and MantisX weapon sensor), provides the Front-Line operator and range management teams with interconnected insights (powered by our Hive 2.0 analytics engine).

With input from Soldiers and Royal Marines in the UK, XCALIBR has been designed and developed with the focus on the Front-Line Operator.


Leveraging on in-service capability and novel technologies XCALIBR provides the Front-Line Operator with:

The benefits of XCALIBR

Utilising XCALIBR has proven benefits of:

The journey continues with a growing number of integrations: extracting data from new targets; new weapons; new functionality. XCALIBR can adapt and grow as technology advances, in line with user needs, wants and aspirations.
