ABOUT THE SHOT BOT

The Shot Bot Target System was created by inventor and entrepreneur Kris Knutson in 2019.

The idea for the portable target system came from another product of Knutson's, called the Bird-Bot, which activates clay pigeon traps for sporting clays, trap and skeet shooting enthusiast. 

 

Work on the Shot Bot began when Kris realized this “Smart” technology could be adapted for firearms training targets.

Knutson developed the first Shot Bot prototype in early 2018, and tested it in numerous tactical training scenarios. After overwhelming positive feedback from the law enforcement officers in these tests, Knutson knew that the device had tremendous potential for firearms training programs. 

The Shot Bot underwent numerous revisions and modifications throughout the year, both in terms of hardware and software. The final product was relatively small, lightweight, and able to be activated at long ranges. These features made it ideal for both close quarters and long range training scenarios in the field as well as urban environments.
