Maintenance Operations on an Athena Range

Orion's Athena Maintenance form may be used to perform system operations on the Targets, Monitors, and Displays.

To open the form, from the menu bar click on Athena -> Athena Unit Maintenance.

Button Operations

Function

Explanation

Select All

Selects all of the Targets, Monitors, and Displays in the list.

Deselect All

Deselects all of the EST Units in the list.

Maintenance Mode

Puts the selected Targets into Maintenance Mode. In this mode the targets will not score any shots or report frame hits.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Scoring Mode

Returns the selected Targets to Scoring Mode, where they will score shots and report frame hits.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Disabling Simulation Mode

Targets can manually be put into a Simulation Mode, where none of the hardware features on the target runs (e.g. the Target Lift). Disabling the Simulation returns the targets to their normal operation.

Monitors can manually be put into Simulation Mode to allow the simulation of shots.

To disable simulation, for either Targets or Monitors, hold the SHIFT key down and click the Maintenance Mode button.

Soft Reboot

Restarts the process on the selected Targets, Monitors, or Displays. Does not restart the Operating System. After issuing this command, the EST Units purposefully will wait 10s before restarting.

On Targets, while the system is rebooting, the RED light will turn on the and the targets light will dim.

Hard Reboot

Restarts the Operating System on the selected Targets, Monitors, or Displays. After issuing this command, the EST Units purposefully will wait 60s before rebooting.

On Targets, while the system is rebooting, the RED light will turn on the and the targets light will dim.

Shutdown

Shuts the operating system down on the selected Targets, Monitors, or Displays. After issuing this command, the EST Units purposefully will wait 60s before shutting down. Once the OS is shutdown power may (and should be) safely turned off.

On Targets, while the system is rebooting, the RED light will turn on the and the targets light will dim. However, the RED lights will turn off and the targets lights will be restored once shutdown is complete. This indicates it is safe to turn the power off.

Maintenance Menu Functions

Function

Explanation

Maintenance Mode

Puts the selected Targets into Maintenance Mode. In this mode the targets will not score any shots or report frame hits.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Scoring Mode

Returns the selected Targets to Scoring Mode, where they will score shots and report frame hits.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Target Lift Calibration

Opens a form to edit the setting values for the Target Lift on the selected Target. Only one Target may be selected at a time for this operation.

Tape Feed Calibration

Opens a form to edit the setting values for the Tape Feed on the selected Target. Only one Target may be selected at a time for this operation.

Live Camera View

Coming soon, will allow you to view the video stream from the target's camera.

View Maintenance Schedule

Opens your web browser to the recommended maintenance schedule for your EST Units.

Ping EST Units

Sends a software ping to all EST Units. The results are displayed in the Range Control tab.

Target Height Menu Operations

Function

Explanation

Standing 1400mm

Sends a request to the Target to change its height to 1400mm. This is also the reset condition, that will always move the target lift up to its highest point (1400mm).

Kneeling 800mm

Sends a request to the Target to change its height to 800mm.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Prone 500mm

Sends a request to the Target to change its height to 500mm.

This function does not have any effect on Displays or Monitors.

Miscellaneous Menu Operations

Function

Explanation

Select All

Selects all of the Targets, Monitors, Displays in the list.

Send Practice to Target

Sends Practice Mode to the selected Targets and Monitors.

Set Calibration Board Size

Sets the size of the calibration board the Target would use to calibrate the camera. The calibration board size is listed near the upper left on the board.

Simulate Shots

Sends commands to the target to simulate shots.

Turn simulated shots on or off.

Set the frequency, in seconds.

Set the standard deviation of the shots, in mm.

Set Tape Feed Advance

Sets the default tape feed advance on the target, measured in mm. Note, a target's tape feed advance is reset with each new practice match (16mm) or competition (26mm).

Set Camera Brightness

Camera Brightness is an internal setting to Athena's scoring algorithm. Unless told to do so by Orion and Athena's support team keep the value set to 80, the default.

Set Bullet Diameter

Orion typically sets the Bullet Diameter for you when a Course of Fire is sent to the Athena targets. Air Rifle and Air Pistol COFs use 4.5mm, Smallbore rifle COFs use 5.6mm. This option allows you to override these defaults. Note that changing this value could cause Athena to score inaccurately if set incorrectly.

Manual Upgrade EST Software

Opens a form that will use ssh commands to log into the selected unit and manually upgrade the firmware.

Rotate Display Entity

Sends a command to the selected Displays to rotate to the next Display Entity.
