miltary Areas and Locations

We select our training areas to offer our clients as many differing environments as possible, crucial to ensure a true contingency capability (go anywhere use anywhere). All our areas offer private and secluded locations ensuring that your training experience is of the very highest quality. Where available we have secured terrain consisting of both Open and Close Country, grass, rock, sand, bush, scrub, wetlands and urban terrain. This diversity will give you and your people the confidence in their skills and an ability to operate anywhere and in all environments.

 

United Kingdom

Aberdeenshire: Our Scotland based training location is situated in over 4000 acres of rugged mixed terrain ideal for our Non-conventional Assisted Recovery (NAR) – Survival training and offering an incredibly challenging array of both lowland and highland countryside all interspersed with fast flowing rivers.

 

Sussex: Our Sussex based training is based within a secure and secluded country estate and incorporates over 400 acres of totally private land. This location is adjacent to an additional 10 sq miles of open heath-land, coniferous and deciduous forest all situated within easy reach of London Airports (Heathrow and Gatwick).

 

Broadmead Range: Through our Associates at ATOM Training we are able to offer the UK’s only civilian Home Office approved explosive training area. Situated in the Mendips, it is easily ac­cessible from the M4 and M5 and is approximately 30 minutes from Bristol Airport. The site is unique in the UK as a medium sized range ideally suited to charge weights up to 2-3kg, although larger shots are possible.

 

The main feature of the site is the “pit” which measures approximately 150m x 200m and is approximately 50m deep. This helps to keep both the noise and, more importantly, fragments in, giving an enhanced “effective” safety distance. There are various firing points and safety bunkers around the site allowing great flexibility for working.

 

The site is also ideal in that it is secluded and offers a secure and private site where sensitive work may be conducted without security concerns. Other facilities on site include “breaching jigs” into which we can build walls and fix doors for EMoE training, a classroom, an office, a canteen and shower facilities. Our site has separate charge preparation areas and secure storage.

 

ATOM will provide two MoD qualified range safety officers and has range standing orders based on MoD PAM 4. Military users are able to use standard firing systems, such as the Shrike and “Black and Tan” cables ensuring that they are comfortable with equipment and procedures.
