Naval Gunnery Target Production
Production Notes
  • Surface Naval Gunnery Targets (NavTGTs) are made from 260 LB rolls of heavy duty 12-mil PVC vinyl film in Orange, Yellow and Lime Green colors.  Submerged skirt bases use Black PVC film.
  • Each NavTGT balloon is basically a single very large cell filled with AIR.  NavTGTs with a skirt base, water floods the base to stabilize and anchor the balloon to the surface when afloat.  There is little internal structure. 
  • NavTGT balloons are not practical to be filled with any other substance, particularly not with a chemical foam which would severely complicate disposal after use. 
  • NavTGT balloons are filled using a standard "leaf blower" type of device or any HVAC, pump, or engine exhaust duct which can be channeled into the balloon. 
  • All air chambers are made using PVC film. PVC film segments are assembled with a Radio Frequency (RF) welder. 
  • Killer Banana™ NavTGTs also have a 2-inch wide 18-foot long nylon webbing stitched into the multi-layer PolyVinyl fabric keel attached to the parachute harness D-ring by which it is towed.  Air chambers are then RF welded onto the keel.
  • Bogie Blimp™ airbourne NavTGTs are made from lightweight PolyUrethane film and are filled with Helium or Hydrogen gas.

  • NOTICE:  Spent NavTGTs on the surface are a hazard to navigation.  After use, any NavTGT remaining on the surface of the sea must be recovered and recycled.
