TrackingPoint’s HUD Sighting System Can Shoot Around Corners?

By Woody published on in Videos

TrackingPoint released a video from its Labs department demonstrating the use of wearable technology—such as Google Glass—paired with a Precision Guided Firearm (PGF). The video showcases the company’s R&D testing of their Shotview streaming app for mobile devices, paired with consumer wearable technology. When paired with wearable technology, a PGF can provide several benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide cover.

This 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.

Through the PGF’s ShotView video stream on the HUD, the shooter can easily see such important variables as range to target, shot angle, rifle cant, compass direction, battery life, and zoom setting.
