Due to overwhelming demand, Athena Systems may have a delay in fulfillment. Please contact us for updated estimates on delivery.
This document is intended to be a guide for clubs when ordering the Athena Electronic Scoring Target (EST). The Athena family is composed of many parts and pieces, and each order is generally customized to fit the needs of specific clubs and ranges. There is no one-size-fits all solution.
The Athena for Clubs EST is designed to integrate with the Orion Scoring System. Athena must have a valid Orion Scoring System license/account to function in a club or on a range. Clubs that do not have an Orion license will need to purchase one.
You may either choose to assemble and install your Athena range yourself (for no added fee), or have a Scopos technitian come on site to do the installtion. A Scopos on site installtion will run $3000 to $6000 depending on location and size of range.
Scopos installation services include:
Services not included:
You may purchase Athena either for a small number of firing points (e.g. 1 or 2) now and purchase more later, or purchase for your entire range now.
Athena for Clubs is generally sold on a per firing point package that includes the NC100 or NC200 EST Target and DoW100 athlete Monitor. Both are required.
There are three stand options for the NC100 and NC200:
The Athlete Tables are generally optional but recommended especially for practice. They come in three forms.
Rulebooks based on international rules (e.g. USAS) do require athlete stands, or at a minimum a bench to place their gear and monitor on. National rulebooks (e.g. CMP) do not. However, athletes will find having an athlete stand advantageous especially during practice. With the stand the athlete monitor may be placed on top of it, making it easier to interact with the user interface during the standing position.
The 3 Position and International table comes with free laser-engraving of the firing point number and your school or team’s emblem. To include your club’s emblem we will need a SVG file, and then confirm with the manufacturer.
Each athlete table is manufactured by Sandusky Woodcraft and are made in the USA.
If your range has bleachers or area spectators to watch, Athena’s MM100 is a device that plugs into an available HDMI port on a TV or display, making match-specific information available to view for all. Spectator Displays (MM100 plus TV) are optional but recommended for ranges with spectator areas.
We recommend 1 spectator display per 6-8 firing points, to display athlete individual scores, plus one additional for the range, to display a leaderboard. For example, if your range has 12 firing points, we would recommend 3 spectator displays.
A MM100 is required for each TV. Any TV with an HDMI port is supported. Our available options include:
Customer is responsible for proper installation of displays.
As unglamorous as they are, power outlets, or extension cords are needed to supply power to each of the EST components NC100, DoW100, and MM100. Check your range and make sure there are outlets available nearby, and if not how many extension cords you will need. Remember, you may need one set of extension cords for both the firing line and the target line.
A standard 15 amp fuse can provide enough power to a 20 point range, for both the NC100 (or NC200) targets and DoW100 athlete monitors.
The NC100 and NC200 draws about .30 amps during normal operation, and .40 amps when the mechanical target lift is engaged. The DoW100 and MM100 draw about .30 amps during normal operation. Note that this does not include any TVs attached to the MM100.
Please consult a licensed electrician to ensure your range has adequate power.
Aiming masks are purchased separately, there is both a front and back aiming mask required.
The shot verification paper roll is used not only used by Athena to score targets, but to physically inspect (or verify) historic shots.
Each roll should last ~2000 shots in practice, and ~1500 shots in a competition.
The Athena line of products have been designed for use with the standard WiFi network protocols. We do require ranges to have an isolated wireless network solely for the Athena network of systems. This is to ensure all data communication between devices are prioritized to provide not only fast, but efficient, communication to display and render scored targets.
The Network Manager is a required component for all club systems. This standalone device is responsible for three primary functions, security, redundancy, and computation. This device is integral to the performance, functionality, and reliability of the Athena system.
The Network Manager may be included in one of three options depending on range size. Only one Network Manager is required for each range.
Since Athena is an IoT (Internet of Things) system, it is important to ensure the security of the appliances and applications. Although Athena is designed with security from the ground up via software and compatible hardware, it is important to take the infrastructure into consideration - in this case, the wireless network Athena uses. As mentioned previously, an isolated network is required for Athena. If your range needs to provide members and/or guests with internet access, a secondary Wireless Network is needed.
When generating your estimate or order, we include the wireless networking equipment (which we pre-configure) for your Athena Range by default. If your organization would like to use and configure your own WiFi network, please see our Configuring Your Own WIFI Network support article.
Things to keep in mind when building a wireless network for your range:
*This is an estimated recommendation. Your needs may vary depending on environmental variables, such as building composition and the size of your range.
