Texas Company Creates World’s First “Precision Guided” Rifle Scope (video)
(www.fishgame.com) A new Texas-based company is developing a shooting system that could turn even the least skilled marksmen into a sniper-quality shooter. TrackingPoint calls its system the “world’s first precision guided firearm.” President Jason Schauble explained in a YouTube demonstration of the technology that what the company did is “put jet fighter lock-and-launch technology into a firing system.” The system uses a conventional gun and ammunition, but combines them with a Intelligent Digital Tracking Scope and a guided trigger. The technology doesn’t let you fire until the shot is spot on.
“You don’t have to be an experienced shooter,” Schauble said in the video. “You can come and pick this up and within minutes be able to master the tag-track-exact technology that allows you to get on target.”
