Lee’s note: TrackingPoint certainly owns the “wow factor” for new firearms technology. Their latest creation is simply stunning — eye wear that allows the shooter to engage a target from behind cover, without exposing anything more than the weapons muzzle to the threat, while non-shooters can track what the rifleman is viewing on their iPads or iPhones.

I can’t wait to shoot this!

Here’s the firm’s latest release:

TrackingPoint, the worldwide leader in advanced firearms technology, has released a video from their Labs department that demonstrates the use of TP1wearable technology along with a Precision Guided Firearm (PGF). PGF technology makes use of a bevy of sensors to make highly accurate ballistic calculations, taking into account wind, elevation, pressure, and more in real time. TrackingPoint’s PGFs enable shooters to lock on and accurately hit moving targets at up to 1200 yards.  The video showcases the companies R&D testing of their ShotView streaming app for mobile devices, paired with consumer wearable technology.

When paired with wearable technology, PGFs can provide unprecedented TP2benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide exceptional cover. Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.

The video demonstrates how wearable technology could enhance a shooter’s ability to engage targets on the battlefield. Similar to a fighter jet’s head’s-up display (HUD), the wearable PGF technology provides the shooter with visual aids to improve the aiming and shooting process. TrackingPoint’s ShotView system can be used to stream video to smartphones or tablets. With wearable technology, the ShotView system could be even more tightly integrated into the shooting experience.

Through the PGF’s ShotView video stream on the HUD, the shooter can easily TP3see such important variables as range to target, shot angle, rifle cant, compass direction, battery life, and zoom setting, all without looking away or diverting their attention. Clearly, the advent of wearable technology has unlocked the potential for firearms to be used in all new ways.

TrackingPoint is an Austin, Texas based applied technology company specializing in integrating advanced technology into battle-proven firearms.  TrackingPoint PGFs use jet fighter lock and launch technology to ensure small arm accuracy at great distances. Available now, TrackingPoint’s AR series and long-range bolt-action rifles enable even novice shooters to hit targets with pinpoint accuracy out to 1200 yards.  TrackingPoint has shipped hundreds of PGFs to hunters and sport shooters around the country.
