Optics on whiteboard
For the last three-and-a-half years, Tracking Point's team has labored in a nondescript office park with the mission to create a "smart rifle" that takes into account ballistics data in long-range shooting and then feeds that information to the shooter.
Long-range shooting is highly mathematical. As soon as a bullet blasts out of a gun's barrel, it's falling. Besides gravity, other factors also shape how a bullet behaves in flight, such as wind, elevation, cant, inclination, and more.
Pictured here is a whiteboard where Tracking Point engineers worked on the high-tech optics within the XS line of rifles.
