Tracking Point System – Now Anyone Can Be A Deadly Sniper


Tracking Point Xact SystemWe recently covered an article on The Liberator. The gun was manufactured using a 3D printer and was able to fire live rounds. Science and technology keep bringing new gadgets and methods for us to employ and make use of. These ‘improved techniques’ and ‘tweaked gadgets’ all work to achieve one thing; easier and simpler life.

Tracking Point Xact System4This article is also related to firearms. We are talking about rifles today and in particular, a smart sniper system . Ask any gun enthusiast or hunter and he would tell you the same thing; the biggest error comes from the human taking the shot. Maybe he miscalculated or maybe he missed out on something. But they all agree on one point; human error while taking a shot exceeds all other errors. This particular rifle was designed keeping one goal in mind; to reduce this human error. Tracking Point Xact System is very easy; you need to mark the prey, the computer re-adjusts and calibrates as per the ground conditions and hunter rectifies his aim, finally taking the shot and scoring a perfect hit.

Tracking Point Xact System3The rifle costs $22,000 and is available now in the market. The rifle makes use of a ballistics computer and a 13 MP camera along with a Linux powered scope and a unique heads up display which is used by the hunter to mark the target. The calculations of the computer are based on; air temperature, humidity and barrel incline. The computer then calibrates and re-adjusts the position of the cross-hair on screen. The hunter has to re-adjust accordingly and take the shot. This rifle has opened up many doors for the future firearms manufacturers.

Tracking Point Xact System2However, while some may argue on the fact that this takes the thrill out of a hunt and using such technology would actually devalue marksmanship abilities, one cannot argue that this rifle is infact a leap forward. For those of you who still want to experience regular rifles and enjoy the thrill of the hunt, well, you can always buy the traditional rifle.

    Thanks , I have just been looking for information approximately this topic for a long time and yours is
    the best I’ve discovered so far. But, what in regards to the
    bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?

    @ PhillyG, while I’m no fan of more efficient killing, I will say this regarding the technology and wind speed judgment. Since meteorological data is often gathered with instruments like doppler radar,including wind speed and sheer, it’s entirely possible for that to be included and factored into this type of system. I’d venture to say that only size is the current drawback, not the science.

    After all, where would our aircraft control system be without these tools? Taking a micro sampling of a 1000-1500 yard area would be nothing compared to doing it over hundreds of miles, which we already do. Again, size would be the deterrent…for now.

    Since I do not see where it says it can calculate wind, it still leaves the ability to accurately hit something at extreme range 800-1000 yards to the shooter. Depending on the direction and speed a tiny let up or change in direction can cause a shot to miss. Technology would not be able to do this anyway as there are far too many variables each day and place you shoot. Is the location a full value, three quarter or half value range. Is there a specific channel for the wind to pick up more speed. What about a place where the winds is showing three different direction depending on the location (shot in several where that happened). Problems with a wind that are coming in straight on or straight away, they never hold exactly and tend to dump you out a little bit each side and are nearly impossible to read except for the most experienced of wind readers. Had that once in the Leach Cup at Camp Perry was a tough match that day. No way computers can just be set in a different place and have all of this handled. To be able to read the wind accurately it takes experience, and that is that thing you get right after you need it….
