Washington Post Speaks With TrackingPoint

Posted by on Jun 2, 2014 in News | 0 comments

This week, The Washington Post featured TrackingPoint in an article discussing our technology and successes.  The article highlights each of our milestones, including the Army’s interest in our technology. The author, Tuan C. Nguyen, cites several outside sources, including Forbes.com; to point out that TrackingPoint technology makes it easy for novice shooters to hit long-range targets with very little prior training. Moreover, the Nguyen makes note of how our technology could lessen what the military spends on training and ammunition.

No doubt last weeks Tech Assassin video inspired this article.  Besides that the author references the aforementioned video by Richard Ryan, the author explains how the technology assisted Ryan in making the shot.

TrackingPoint on Tech Assassin

Posted by on May 20, 2014 in News | 0 comments

This week, Richard Ryan, tech-assassin, set his sights on the HTC One smartphone using a TrackingPoint XS1. The video published to Ryan’s YouTube channel, RatedRR, has at the time of this writing been viewed over 165,000 times.

The video begins from a windy vantage point over 1100 yards away. Ryan lines up three shots and hits the phone three times leaving nothing but scrap metal and broken glass.

To set up the shot Ryan had to affix a blaze orange circle onto the phone in an effort to make the 5-inch device visible at great distance.

The first shot nailed the phone screen, piercing straight through it, a .338-sized hole.  The next two shots were aimed at the mere 9.35mm edge of the smartphone, first grazing the screen, next hitting the edge dead-on.

AR Series Precision Guided Firearm Overview Video

Posted by on May 20, 2014 in News | 0 comments

TrackingPoint’s AR Series takes the semi-automatic AR platform to new heights, providing the ultimate shooting experience.

With stabilized target selection, target tracking and guided firing the TrackingPoint AR Series enables anyone to be an expert marksman out to the 500-750 yard effective range of the firearm, even from difficult firing positions, such as kneeling, offhand or shooting from extreme angles.

The system boots up to a standard red dot reticle and standard trigger control for quick usage. For targets at distance where the shooter wishes to use manual trigger pull, the user can use free-fire mode. Free fire mode allows the shooter to use the tag button to select a range, the networked tracking scope adjusts for the ballistic solution for that range, and the shooter can fire with their own trigger pull repeatedly. A simple push of the tag button resets the ballistic solution.

Advanced mode brings the full capabilities of the AR Series Precision Guided Firearm to bear. In advanced mode the user can tag to get moving lead or to take a tracked shot with the auto fire control. The networked tracking scope calculates the ballistic solution, and the user fires using the guided trigger to remove all human error. After the user tags, he squeezes and holds the trigger, turning his reticle red in the smart rifles heads up display. The user then simply brings the red reticle back over the red tag, and the shot will release. The advanced ballistic calculation paired with the guided trigger fire control allows for tracked shots on moving targets at extreme distance beyond any but the most skilled shooters human capability.

The TrackingPoint AR Series features a Laser Rangefinder, Linux powered ballistic calculator, built in wi-fi for streaming to mobile devices, a tag button, a guided trigger, and a barrel reference system. The system also contains an inertial measurement unit, 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers that calculate cant and inclination. This allows for extreme angle shots including shots from under vehicles up hills.

All shots can be streamed via the built in wi-fi to mobile devices, and the system is enabled for video recording of tag and shot sequences. All of the features and capabilities in the TrackingPoint AR Series Precision Guided Firearm dramatically enhance the hunting and shooting sports experience while delivering a powerful tactical advantage to military and law enforcement organizations.

The AR Series is currently available in 7.62 NATO, 5.56 NATO and 300 Blackout, starting at $9,995.

TRACKINGPOINT UNVEILS 750 SERIES HUNTING RIFLES

750_SideProfile

TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system, announced the debut of its 750 Series of Precision Guided hunting rifles at the 2014 NSSF SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Delivering TrackingPoint’s TTX (Tag Track Xact) technology on popular lightweight rifles allows for dynamic hunting at effective ranges up to 750 yards. The 750 Series precision guided rifles are offered in three calibers: 308 Winchester, 300 Winchester Magnum, and 7mm Remington Magnum.

“TrackingPoint continues to broaden its line of precision guided firearms with the launch of the 750 Series,” said John Lupher, TrackingPoint CEO. “The new 750 Line will appeal to the classic game hunter who is also excited by the groundbreaking possibilities of TrackingPoint TTX: hitting big game on the move, across valleys, up steep mountains, down into steep valleys, off-hand, unsupported with digital tagging stabilization. A TrackingPoint hunter can be as good as the greatest marksmen who ever lived.”

TrackingPoint’s PGF system is changing real-world marksmanship by enabling a shooter to track and hit moving targets at extreme ranges, and enabling mastery within minutes. The 750 Series PGF automatically records video of every shot for the entire hunt while also streaming live video to a smartphone or tablet.

The new TrackingPoint 750 rifles are priced at $9,995 and pre-orders are being taken at the SHOT Show as well as at www.tracking-point.com, with deliveries expected to begin in the second quarter of 2014.

TrackingPoint is showcasing the 750 Series during the SHOT Show, January 14-17 from its exhibit at Booth 12451 on Level 2 of the Sands Expo Center. To learn more, visit the company booth or go to www.tracking-point.com.
