Visakhapatnam: A first-of-its-kind composite indoor shooting range (CISR) was inaugurated by Vice Adm. Biswajit Dasgupta, flag officer commanding-in-chief, Eastern Naval Command, at INS Karna on the Eastern Seaboard on Thursday.

The CISR is a state-of-the-art, self-contained, 25m, six-lane, live firing range for all primary and secondary weapons in the Navy. With advanced target systems with associated control software, this range would enable personnel to hone their firing skills, enabling them to challenge and take on adversaries in demanding scenarios.




The entire facility was set up in a record time of 120 days from the award of the contract to the Indian firm.

INS Karna is the first in the Navy and perhaps the only military unit in the country to set up and use CISR presently. The facility would significantly enhance the operational capability of the Naval personnel of ENC, enabling them to better undertake the wide gamut of tasks that they are mandated to perform over the entire area of responsibility by allowing uninterrupted training in controlled conditions for a wide variety of weapons and simulated situations.
