Sniper Rifle System Powered by Linux
Tracking Point Precision targeting system brings lock and launch capabilities to firearms. The new assisted aiming system takes numerous inputs into consideration and ensures a first hit, the first time. Even for untrained marksmen.
And underneath the video system, range finder, guided trigger and WiFi server is… Linux!
The firing system looks like it is right out of a science fiction movie. When you look through the scope you are presented a Heads Up Display (HUD) similar to what jet fighters have. Basically all you have to do is tag your target, and a red dot will be placed where the bullet will hit. The computerized scope system instantly determines the distance with a laser range finder, then calculates the wind speed, direction, temperature and air pressure.
Then simply pull and hold the trigger. A red “X” appears on the display and when the “X” is placed over the tag, the firing solution is optimal and the system releases the bullet to strike the target.
According to reports the system drastically increases hit probability, claiming 100% accuracy at ranges up to 950 yards.
And with the included Wi-Fi server you can stream the HUD display to any iOS powered device. Or record the video of your shot for later viewing.
