InteliScope Pro: how to hit a target with an iPhone?


If you still think that applications for smartphones do not go beyond ordinary entertainment, then you should pay attention to such an American development as InteliScope. This is not an advertisement of any American design. This is a description of how the West decided to use software capabilities to use them in military affairs, the website reports

What is InteliScope? This is a system that can be integrated with a digital device from the category of smartphones or tablets, and can serve as an aiming device for various types of small weapons. To realize the ability to integrate a smartphone with an installed weapon system, the developers are talking about a special set of restraints compatible with the most popular bar for retrofitting a weapon with additional devices - the Picatinny bar.

The system operates as follows. The front camera of the device "translates" the image of the target through a special lens. The program allows you to catch the target and indicate the direction of the arrow for the most accurate shot.

Such a system immediately attracted attention in the United States. It’s impossible to call it an ideal aiming system, and for military purposes only, it’s not suitable in the best way, but for training exercises in a shooting range or on a special shooting range, the system may well prove itself. And already shows! The capabilities of the system allow to conduct aimed fire from the shelter.

Initially, the system was "sharpened" under a single operating system. And if we are talking about the United States of America, then the readers guessed that this system is iOS. At the same time, the system could be installed on an iPhone not lower than the 4 version. That is, for owners of iPhone3, the application for InteliScope turned out to be useless - it simply was not installed into the smartphone.

Recently, the developers decided to expand the market and developed a similar application for owners of digital devices on the Android platform. For the first time such a system of aiming was demonstrated at the exhibition "SHOT Show 2014".

In the updated version of InteliScope Pro, a model with a triangular-shaped bracket, which is made of composite (fairly light and durable) material, is implemented. Fastening is carried out through the Picatinny rail. A distinctive feature of the previous models is that in this system there is no lock function for the mobile device’s camera. In this case, the device can be placed where it will be most convenient for the shooter - it is not at all necessary that it be located in the upper part of the barrel, as most shooters in the world are used to. For safety reasons, the device can be fixed to the side or bottom.

The InteliScope Pro system uses three rubber mounts that can be adjusted by the shooter himself. These mounts hold the smartphone, not allowing vibrations to make negative adjustments to the process of aiming. In addition, the smartphone in the presence of such mounts will not suffer from a blow, which can occur, for example, in the fall of small arms on a solid surface.

The new system of aiming is adapted to the device as based on the "apple" operating system for mobile devices, so on the basis of the Android OS.
Today, such an application can be installed using application download resources for specified operating systems. Important: the application is downloaded for free, but there are paid versions with the presence of add-ons in the form of programs that allow you to adjust the approaching image, process it in digital form for better perception in the process of aiming.

The basic application of the program has 6 special templates. In addition, the application can be supplemented by such programs that determine the type of small arms, caliber ammunition, navigation system, metric data and much more. There are a number of functions that allow you to determine the climatic characteristics of the environment: wind speed and its direction, which is very important at the time of making to shooting. Programs allow you to control aiming and suggest which option of shooting to choose to hit a target that is at a certain distance.

So that the place where the shooter is located was not revealed by the enemy at the first shot, the system can block the flash of the camera. If the light is necessary for better orientation in the terrain, then here the application may allow the inclusion of a highlight of the required intensity. During shooting, you can use the included timer, which will allow you to determine the rate (rate of fire).

So far, such systems are being implemented only for the United States of America. However, there is the possibility of acquiring systems directly from InteliScope LLC. The sanctions imposed on Russia for citizens of the Russian Federation do not yet allow ordering the system.

    For training firing? Well, then they’re also training, so that during these shootings they learn to shoot, aim, correct, determine the influence of external factors (temperature, wind speed, humidity, etc.) If we are talking about combat training, a fighter must be able to confidently use your trunk, navigate the terrain, etc. without any stray there.

    You shouldn’t be so. For example, by installing a navigator on a smartphone, I did not buy a navigator. You can also not buy quite an expensive Kalimator, using again the same smart. The idea is interesting, and accessible to everyone.

      Reflex sights Aimpoint micro T1, cost from 25 rubles. In addition, I myself personally dropped it from a height of about 000 meters on a concrete floor - alive, but a smartphone? Yes, and when shooting, there are very strong vibrations and shocks, whether a "regular" civilian device will be okay, but a special one is not sickly, most likely.
      And by the way, how long can smartphones work seamlessly without charging. So, what an interesting toy or device advertisement))

    It turns out interesting - I set it, shot it only, and then your beloved wife calls you, what should I do or shoot with a gun? So in the ear you can shoot and it’s okay only to yourself. There is really no practicality in training, let alone God forbid to hang such a stray in battle on a barrel.

    implement yet. With a shot counter. Shot number 1 - frame number 1, and time min., Sec.

        each of the ten shooters swears that "it is me, well, for sure! I swear!" - hit.

    Without a telephoto lens, rangefinder and weather station (for determining temperature, wind, air pressure), this solution is stupid. And what will happen to the telephone, the alignment of the barrel and the camera after falling to the ground or a queue, even scary to think. I wonder how the ability to "indicate the target to the arrow" is implemented, is there a pattern recognition system, if so, what patterns? In short, the usual advertising marketing of a mount for a telephon, which has nothing to do with a real sight. By the way, the external telephoto lens for iphone is sold together with a special case, but the external lens is not visible in the commercial.

    You shouldn’t frown at him like that! Already there is a smartphone with a built-in laser range finder, DPS cards, protective against water, dust, shock, and with the night shooting function - such as night vision, and I’m sure in 5 years Jews will introduce such a thing in their army and everyone will be shocked by its capabilities. we will bite our elbows and say how is it that our Chubais is to blame for everything !!!!

      So you need to carry out their best practices in this area, but not on the basis of smartphones. It is necessary to create specialized sighting systems.
      Another point against this pribluda in the army - what prevents the manufacturer from "punching" the location of any phone he produces? Here you can even determine where and how many enemy soldiers without UAVs and satellites

    marketing and nothing more
    The epol has long been using the principle of deifying its products and introducing the idea of ​​worship to the masses, so it’s not surprising that it seems to be a useless and unnecessary stop signal for hares, but only hares buy it and boast about it.
    so "Hares of all countries is an absolutely necessary thing for you and do not care that the main thing is past the goal for you"
