Belgium-based firearm manufacturer, FN Herstal showcased its newly-developed ballistic calculator at Defense and Security Equipment International Exhibition (DSEI) 2019.
FN Herstal has developed a new compact weapon mounted range finder with an embedded ballistic solver and an all-in-one laser system. This ruggedized device fits to any squad weapon, and replaces devices like legacy laser aiming devices, handheld range finders and smartphone-based ballistic apps.
The FN Ballistic Calculator enhances lethality by increasing hit probability and situational awareness, and simplifying target designation.
The FN Ballistic Calculator combines ballistic sensors and laser capabilities in a small form factor. It integrates:
+ a unique ballistic solver capable of efficiently managing the effect of bullet trajectory
+ an advanced state-of-the-art laser range finder
+ a state-of-the-art OLED screen that displays relevant and accurate ballistic correction data in an optimum quality
+ a large number of designation capabilities such as a visible or infrared laser pointer, and a variable infrared illuminator
+ a system to quickly and securely attach the ballistic calculator onto the host weapon
+ different technologies such as Bluetooth or RS232 to connect to a soldier system or any other accessories
With the addition of this military quality product, FN Herstal continues to expand its FN e-novation product line, which harnesses modern technology to further enhance the capabilities of the dismounted combatant.
