TrackingPoint introduced a line of self-loading rifles

45
TrackingPoint Company (Austin, Texas), known for its developments in high-precision small weapons, began selling a new line of rifles called Precision-Guided Semi-Auto. The weapon of a new series is completed with already known sights, automatically providing the calculation of amendments for firing. The main difference from the previous rifle complexes, the sale of which began several years ago, is the weapon used as their basis. Previously, the Precision-Guided complexes included rifles with a longitudinal sliding gate. The new series, as its name implies, uses self-loading rifles of several calibers.




TrackingPoint sights, used in rifles of the new series, have long been known among shooters. As follows from the published data, when creating new self-loading rifles, the existing sights and auxiliary equipment were taken without any modifications and changes in the design. The main element of the complex is still a set of optical-electronic equipment mounted on the mountings of the receiver of the weapon. It has video cameras, electronics for signal processing, a liquid crystal display-eyepiece and a device for controlling the bend of the barrel. This unit is responsible for tracking the target, making amendments and implementing the shot.

In the butt of the new self-loading rifles is a unit for batteries. The lithium-ion batteries used ensure continuous operation of the sighting system for 4 hours. On the outer surface of the receiver, near the firing mechanism is a block of control mechanisms. It is designed to block the trigger by command of the sight. Finally, the trigger button has an automatic tracking button.

The principle of operation of the sighting devices TrackingPoint Precision-Guided is quite simple, but it was the Texan company that was the first to manage to bring such equipment to the market. As before, the shot is carried out according to an algorithm called Tag-and-Shoot (“Mark and Shoot”). In preparation for the shot, the shooter must aim the weapon at the target and place an aiming mark on it. Next, using the button on the trigger guard, the target is taken to auto-follow. According to the manufacturer, the new self-loading rifles with similar sights are able to automatically track targets moving at speeds up to 10-17 miles per hour, depending on the specific model of the weapon.



The TrackingPoint sight determines the distance to the target, as well as the direction and speed of the wind. Using the available information about the used ammunition in the memory and the collected data, the electronics automatically calculates corrections for firing and displays the aiming point on the screen. Next, the shooter must hold the trigger and thereby give the command to fire. At that moment, when during the oscillations of the weapon (due to the hand-shake of the shooter and other external factors) the recommended aiming point coincides with the target, the automated sight sends a command to unlock the firing mechanism. Shot occurs.

As part of the new Precision-Guided Semi-Auto range, three rifles with different characteristics are available. This weapon is equipped with similar sighting equipment, the differences are due only to the used ammunition. Accordingly, each of the three rifles is equipped with an automated sight, adapted to work with its cartridge.

The first of the three rifles presented is the Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 5.56. This weapon is built on the basis of the famous AR15 platform and has a number of characteristic features inherent in it. At the same time, TrackingPoint engineers made some adjustments to the design of the base rifle associated with the use of original sights. So, the rifle is equipped with a butt with a built-in battery compartment, the trigger guard is enlarged to set the target pickup button for tracking, and on the right surface of the receiver there is a lock of the trigger mechanism.

The Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 5.56 rifle uses the 5,56x45 mm NATO cartridge and is equipped with a TrackingPoint sight, designed to work with this ammunition. The maximum range of shooting using automation - 0,33 miles. You may hit a target moving at speeds up to 10 miles per hour. At maximum range, fire accuracy up to 0,047 MOA is ensured. The scope has a digital zoom from 2x to 14x. To carry out all the necessary calculations, the sight takes about 1 seconds. All data about the shot and the image can be transmitted to a third-party device wirelessly Wi-Fi 802.11G.

TrackingPoint introduced a line of self-loading rifles


TrackingPoint provides customers with a three-year warranty on all components of the rifle, including the barrel. Declared a regular update of software sighting equipment. The Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 5.56 rifle is available for order from October 1. Like other products of the Texas company, the new rifle is distinguished not only by its high performance, but also by its extraordinary price: in order to acquire it, you will have to part with 7495 US dollars.

The second rifle of the family - Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 7.62. This weapon is also built on the basis of the AR15 platform, however, it is intended for the use of rifle cartridges 7,62x51 mm NATO. The architecture of the rifle is the same as that of other weapons of the family: it is equipped with a butt with a battery compartment, an automated sight and a number of other equipment.

For use with a cartridge caliber 7,62 mm proposed TrackingPoint sight with the appropriate settings. The Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 7.62 rifle's maximum range is limited to 0,5 miles. Shooting is performed on a target moving at speeds up to 15 miles per hour. Accuracy is declared at the level of the previous family rifle - up to 0,047 MOA. Electronic components of a sight allow to establish increase in limits from 3х to 21x.

Terms of delivery and warranty of all rifles of the new line are the same. At the same time, the Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 7.62 rifle is significantly more expensive than the “younger” model of the caliber 5,56 mm: it costs 14995 dollars.

The oldest and most expensive rifle of the new line was Precision-Guided 300 WM Semi-Auto. This weapon uses .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges (7,62x67 mm) and has higher performance compared to two other rifles. The maximum effective range of the rifle chambered for .300 Win Mag is declared at the 0,5 mile level. The maximum target speed reaches 17 miles per hour. In terms of other characteristics, the TrackingPoint automated rifle sight for the Precision-Guided 300 WM Semi-Auto rifle is similar to that used in the Precision-Guided Semi-Auto 7.62.

The Precision-Guided 300 WM Semi-Auto rifle is the most powerful weapon in the new line and costs accordingly. TrackingPoint set the price in 18995 dollars.

From the beginning of October to the end of November, TrackingPoint holds an advertising campaign aimed at supporting two new projects at once. All customers of new self-loading rifles with automated sights receive as a gift special ShotGlass glasses that can work together with sighting devices.

The device ShotGlass is a glasses with a set of special equipment. Perhaps the most interesting element of the glasses is a miniature display located in their right side. It is argued that the proportions of the image displayed by the display are equivalent to a monitor with a diagonal of 30 inches. In addition, the glasses are equipped with an HD video camera, microphone and speaker for recording and playing sound. ShotGlass glasses software is based on the Android operating system.

Special glasses for shooters from the company TrackingPoint while you can not buy. The device will go on sale in March next year. The estimated price of the product listed on the manufacturer's official website is 995 dollars.

Recent ones news and press releases suggest that TrackingPoint intends to continue to develop new rifle systems using smart designs of its own. In addition, other devices should appear in the company's product line for shooters who prefer modern electronics for various purposes. The stated characteristics of weapons and support systems look interesting and promising.

Despite the high performance, it is safe to assume that the rifles of the Precision-Guided Semi-Auto family will not be widely used. With all the advantages, the proposed rifle complexes, as well as TrackingPoint's previous developments with a longitudinally sliding gate, have a serious disadvantage - high cost. The budget in 7,5, and even more so 19 thousand dollars allows the shooter to choose from a large number of rifles of various models from different manufacturers. In addition, not all shooters are interested in acquiring weapons with an automated sight, especially for so much money.

However, new TrackingPoint rifle complexes will definitely find a buyer and will be able to realize their potential in a shooting range or hunting ground. Naturally, the rifles of the Precision-Guided Semi-Auto family cannot be compared in number with other weapons of their class. However, they can become quite popular in their narrow niche of precision weapons.

        Well, for some reason, there is also auto tracking, but not for shooting, back in the mid-2000s there was an RPG-29 resuscitation project as LNG, and there the main feature was a sight that had a laser rangefinder, auto tracking, a calculator and a night channel - True weight and size of the sight was appropriate.

      The target on an eye-clad lens only receives information from a rifle scope.

      In practice, it is always necessary to combine the longitudinal axis of the barrel with the theoretical (calculated ballistic computer) longitudinal axis.

    Firing accuracy is declared at the level of the previous rifle family - up to 0,047 MOA.

    The author again did not check the information. Tenths, and especially hundredths of a millimeter for a firearm, an unattainable value. The army snipers rejected six PGF rifles purchased for testing by the US Army from this company, the accuracy of the corrections calculated by sight turned out to be lower than those calculated simply by the shooter.

          Deviation of the initial speed due to deviation of the weight of the gunpowder and the weight of the bullet from the chip or barcode on the cartridge.
          Meteorological station plus augmented by its sensors of pressure, wind and temperature. Derivation from the internal compass.
          Deviation due to barrel shooting is a counter plus a Doppler initial velocity meter.

          Accuracy can be significantly increased without AI, just given more corrections for the deviation of the shooting conditions.

          But here is the question of the price of such accuracy.

    Most of all, these are light glasses of augmented reality. They will be like a google glass, just add a point of sight that corresponds to the present moment to the real picture. Type as a laser designator only without a laser and sight. For close combat, that’s it. Overview and peripheral vision are not reduced, accuracy is growing. Yes, and you can shoot from uncomfortable positions. And when you shoot at a far distance, then of course you need to use the scope. Although it should have a little more function, and not be purely automatic. And then somehow there is little time for tracking and choosing the moment for the shot. The most important thing is to reduce the calculation time for corrections for such points. And then with sharp turns will be much behind. I think it is quite possible to do it now! The commercial options for augmented reality glasses are already there. It remains only to do the military. Although for most soldiers a sight is enough which quickly considers corrections for range and wind. Simple and not expensive. With integrated rangefinder and other sensors. And then while we will wait for smart glasses to wait half a century. commercial google voice somewhere around 700 bucks. But there is only a camera. The military option should cost a lot more. But it's worth it. In addition, if you train with such glasses, you will begin to feel the weapon much better and faster. The power of visualization. Oh dreams dreams ...

    "TrackingPoint's new shooting systems will surely find their customers and will be able to realize their potential in a shooting range or hunting area."

    It’s not entirely clear to me how a sight can remember and track a certain aiming point on, say, a homogeneous surface. Well, for example, hunters know that the moose must be shot from the side by the shoulder blade. The whole carcass of a moose is very large, approximately uniform and uniform in texture. I pointed the rifle on the shoulder blade, the sight seemed to remember this place, the moose went. I do not think that this place will be determined by sight again on hover; he apparently does not possess abstract thinking. In addition, an elk can enter a bush in which it will no longer be identified as a target. You can shoot through the branches, but the sight thinks when to give a command to the fire.

      We have analogies, for example, the sight of the Lynx LD
      The sight provides:

      - observation of the terrain;
      - measuring the distance to the target with an integrated laser range finder;
      - automatic temperature measurement;
      - calculation of the vertical aiming angle and lateral corrections, depending on the ballistic characteristics of the weapon, the ambient temperature and manually entered atmospheric pressure, the speed of the target and the speed of the side wind;
      - automatic input of aiming angles by moving the sighting mark vertically by the calculated aiming angle;
      - indication of the value and direction of the calculated lateral correction for wind and target speed on a digital indicator in the field of view;
      - indication of battery discharge on a digital indicator in the field of view;
      - its use on various types of hunting and fishing weapons, having both side and top seats;
      - The sight is powered by battery.


      The sight has one or more installed ballistics, switchable by the consumer (the types of installed ballistics are determined when ordering), and also allows you to program the ballistics according to the results of firing at 3 different ranges.

    Another problem with air density / humidity. Water hazards, shade / sun, etc., especially at borders. On short (up to 400m.) This is of course not important, but on long-distance (from 800m) it can significantly reduce the trajectory. I talked with experienced truckers, how do they get amendments to this case? The answer, and HZ, by eye. BV "by eye" then can not.

      Why are you all rushing about with this EMP, as with a written bag. Effective means and methods to counteract this phenomenon appeared in the 70s.
      Look at the difference between the UAZ-459 and UAZ-459E. Pay attention to the protection of the tropospheres from electromagnetic radiation. Well, for example.

        You don’t understand anyone - it’s just a very beautiful word - EMP is just like the name of a beloved girl, and most importantly, inserting it where you need it and you don’t need it yourself seem so smart you can describe yourself! wassat

        But seriously, many just heard the ringing and don’t know where it is - they canceled it at the school, in the army of those who are now from 20 to 40, God forbid, they served 10% but read all kinds of advanced magazines like popular mechanics regularly. So no one explained to them that the radius of the EMP in a ground or low-altitude explosion does not differ much from the rest of the damaging factors, and the carbonized and flattened sight will still not work. EMP has a large radius only in a high-altitude explosion, but by and large it’s all nonsense - if nuclear weapons are used, then it’s definitely not up to the sights and shooting range.
        In the 80s, the topic of non-nuclear EMP weapons was very popular and fashionable, but in the end everything was blown away, we only constructed the inverts by mid-inertia until mid-00, because miserable radius results are not guaranteed - so it’s easier in the old way - fragmentation, high explosive or thermal bar.
        By the way, an example of a "desert storm" is indicative here - it was originally planned to suppress the Iraqi radar with the help of tomahawks with EMP warheads, but in the end common sense prevailed and EMP ammunition and fragmentation warheads were used for the same objects, after the end bd there was a need to write a document on tests in combat conditions - well, the conclusions there were hefty funny, in such a way - that the EMP warheads showed their high efficiency in suppressing the air defense system, but more specifically, one cannot say more precisely since the radars were badly damaged (turned into sieve) after being hit by duplicate missiles with fragmentation b / h.
        in the 90s, after the adoption of the convention on mines, many countries undertook to plant mines with electronic fuses equipped with self-liquidators and formally not falling under the convention, the Bundes scratched their turnips and decided that mortar mines with amy would be ideal for making passages in such fields, well duc , conducted an experiment, as a result (wait, I don’t remember the type of fuse, and this is not so important) within a radius of 5 meters from the detonation of such a mine, the fuses stopped responding to any "irritants" and after about 40 minutes they recovered and reacted to everything, even to that that they shouldn't have, so the Germans abandoned such an idea.

          You are somewhat wrong. The development of non-nuclear EMI ammunition is in full swing.

          In addition, there is a new topic - microwave weapons. Electronic burner. There are already existing samples. The Americans have a drone and a bomb, we have a machine for remote detection of mines / IEDs and mine clearance, which is "Smile". This is what is declassified. Plus, ours already at the exhibitions showed a microwave generator in a container design for an aircraft and a machine for covering air defense positions from high-precision weapons.

            Unlike communications, shielding such a technique is not very difficult, for example, using a Faraday cage. Microwave waves do not disable the equipment, but either clog the channel (the radar glows like a Christmas tree) or go in antiphase, extinguishing (off the beaten track) communications and radars.

          Quote "A powerful EMP can be created not only as a result of a nuclear explosion. Modern advances in the field of non-nuclear EMP generators make them compact enough for use with conventional and high-precision delivery vehicles. Currently, work is underway in some Western countries to generate electromagnetic radiation pulses by magnetodynamic devices , as well as high-voltage discharges. Therefore, the issues of protection against the effects of EMP will remain in the center of attention of specialists in any outcome of negotiations on nuclear disarmament. "

    At that moment, when during a weapon’s vibrations (due to the shooter's hand trembling and other external factors), the recommended aiming point coincides with the target, the automated sight sends a command to unlock the trigger mechanism. A shot is taking place.
    Neither open the distracting fire nor brush bushes. For each shot, you must first mark the target and then wait for the rifle to deign to shoot. With an ordinary sight, you know for sure that the rifle is guaranteed to fire when you press the trigger. You will hit well, you won’t hit - at least you will scare, you will hit the enemy’s sight. So I clicked on the bracket and think if he could manage to roll it on your forehead without any advanced systems ...

      And such a simple and logical idea didn’t occur to you that this lock is activated only when the target is marked, and in all other cases, right up to the corny battery, it just doesn’t work and the descent functions like a regular rifle?

      Well, no rifle will fire from pulling the trigger, usually the trigger is pulled, the trigger is pulled on some machine guns, but if you use your own terminology, don’t be surprised that you are misunderstood and either reconcile or learn the right one.

    In general, I was most attracted to this unit by a device that controls the bending of the trunk.

    In theory, this device can be used as a kind of THP - after setting the sight, it will be able to introduce amendments, and it will not be necessary to shoot it, weapons.

    The second option is the application to increase the accuracy of the machine gun: a shot will occur when the oscillating barrel passes through, so to speak, the true throw line

    By the way, this will make a machine gun with interchangeable trunks of different lengths. Short light for settlements, medium for fields, long heavy for firing from a machine tool.

    I see here quite ordinary marketing tricks inherent in car dealers - almost the same product is sold at a price 2-3 times higher. If you produce this sighting system, made in a separate unit, in which the ballistic characteristics of the main ammunition are stitched (and technically it is very easy to do) , then it can be put on any weapon, and it will cost much cheaper. It can be made easier on the basis of a laser rangefinder with a correction for the point of impact. Controllers that can process such data with ychas produced a great many-fit any car, just write programmu.Udivitelno that no one else wanted to make real money on the production of such devices suitable for the technology, according to the complexity of the mid-range camcorder.

    A promising thing, the shooting accuracy of even an unprepared fighter will increase significantly. Well, in general, this is a ready-made, relatively inexpensive, simple sighting system for robotic combat modules and turrets. If the military is interested in the parameters, they will increase, no, they will develop a "peaceful" market.

    accuracy at maximum range 0,047 MOA - tin! In the best traditions of Jules Verne.

    You are far from the first to pay attention to this, I’m certainly glad that you know what MOA is, but instead of cloning posts, it’s better if you looked at the developer's site what he writes about it, you look and wrote something really sensible -would.
    "At maximum range, fire accuracy is up to 0,047 MOA." - this phrase is a jamb of a translator / composer, in the original there is Tracking Precision - tracking accuracy, applies exclusively to electronics and is really 0,047 MOA but not just like that, but by one degree - i.e. This means that the accuracy of the aiming point is not more than 0,047 MOA for each degree of displacement of the target or sight, i.e. this term has no relation to the accuracy of the rifle.
    By the way, there is one more jamb in the text - the maximum displacement speed of the tracked target - in the text it is just miles per hour related to a spherical horse in a vacuum, and the manufacturer has these same miles per hour at a certain distance - by the way, a rather tricky marketing move, the classic one immediately comes to mind - "We will turn your shameful disease into a feat!" Ts. K / f "DMB" the fact is that such things are considered to be in the angular velocity of the target "transversal speed", but this is not a standard move made on purpose - because at 800 m (0,5 miles) the maximum displacement speed that can be tracked by electronics 24 km / h at 530 m is 16 km / h, since the angular value is the closer to the arrow, the lower the maximum speed of the tracked target, so that already at 300 m it will not be able to keep a frontally moving pedestrian with a "tabular" speed 5 km / h.

    if you look at innovation it’s cool. but for war I would prefer to take tiku or even Kalash.

    I would like to look at the test where they hit a tricky sight with a hammer.

    This system is for the civilian market. Our reliability requirements for military weapons, it will not go unambiguously!

      absolutely true, totally agree with you. our military in the practical use of such weapons immediately reject it for reasons of reliability and efficiency.
