The International filing date, December 20st 2006, is deemed the filling date for the purpose of determining the term of the US application.patented technology

There was a soft launch in Australia in November 2008.

This innovative product was officially launched in London in April 2009.

Our patented gaming guns use a lensed infrared light system. Our patent application was lodged with the US Patent Office on June 18th 2009.

Digital Radio Connectivity - Peer to Peer

Our new radio frequency hardware and our upgraded gun software. Currently our research and development team are working on an amplitude- modulated transmitter and an associated regenerative receiver a radio band. This is ideal for short range communication—up to 330ft (100m) in ideal conditions. Basically if you can see them, you can shoot them!

Of course gamers are not going to make it easy for you to tag them, because this is high-tech hide and seek! Because our application has a high data rate, we use a PIC micro-controller and have had to upgrade our assembler software to achieve secure and reliable transmissions. Our innovative research and development has been recognized with a national award - the Australian Technology Showcase.SATR technology badge

World's First - Hit-feedback in any Terrain

Now you KNOW you've got 'em. Our patented system enables you to not only know when you've been hit, but when you've got the other guy. In 13 languages you can hear "casualty" or "kill confirmed" so the shooters gaming gun gets real-time hit-feedback. The gamer's display is automatically updated in real-time. Gamers can now get k/d ratios, accuracy percentages and much more. Read the summary of the patent points, here.

Robust and Realistic

It is totally safe and superb for the difficult market of 12-17 year olds and will give substantial benefit to us for our visitors' fun. It's the whole safety thing for me and the whole family involvement. We have looked at paintball several times but have discounted it because of the danger factor. Also having looked at all the outdoor laser systems available we concluded that the Battlefield Sports system was the best. The gaming guns are robust and realistic with a range to suit all ages and sizes and we are totally impressed with the service and back-up given by the company.

Digital Small Arms Transmitter Receiver System

SATR™ system, Battlefield Sports now supports indoor live gaming even better. SATR has a software configured indoor mode than radically reduces infrared ricochets. The ability of SATR to perform global digital radio controlled start, stop, pause and resume means SATR gives the CO additional control to speed up throughput. In other words you can get through more people through their gamers quicker. Higher throughput means higher profits for you.

Indoor gamers love SATR's key feature in any environment, real time hit feedback via the shooters gun with real time on gun statistics. Statistics includes hits made, kills made and accuracy percentage.

Any well developed and successful game system is carefully balanced so that no one tactic or side is, overall, at a significant advantage or disadvantage. Gamers can be very inventive in finding winning tactics or strategies and it is only after a large number of play tests with a variety of players with continuous refinement of the game rules and tools that true game balance can be assured.

Battlefield LIVE™ is the live gaming phenomenon. All our gaming guns are built tough in Australia. We believe in continuous and never-ending improvement.

Great Work

This is an excellent product, keep up the great work.

Great Zombie Games

We upgraded all of our laser tag guns and I had a team experiment with the Zombie mode. You guys did a great implementation. I think we can create some great games around this new functionality. We have been talking about games with the domination features as well. This upgrade is definitely worth the time!
