“Does the system account for aiming off (lead), if so, how is it
- All information needed
for the estimation of the necessary lead is registered by the system. The
calculation is based on (1) distance to the target, (2) target speed and
direction, and (3) ammunition data (i.e. muzzle velocity, shot size and
density). Distance and target trajectory in evaluated each time a shot is
fired. Ammunition data are input as parameters via the keyboard. Forward
allowance is calculated as the movement of the target between the instant
the load emerges from the muzzle till it passes the target (i.e. reaches the
point of minimum distance between
the center of the shot and the target).
"What is the precision
of the hit position indication?"
- The accuracy of the
indication of distance between target and shot (center) as indicated on the
hit position display, i.e. the aiming error, is typically plus/minus a few
centimeters. When determining whether a particular shot is to be judged as a
hit or miss, the statistical variation in shot cluster density (number of
pellets per surface unit) typically has more significance than errors in the
indicated hit position. In short: for all practical purposes the precision
is good enough.
"How about eye
safety, is laser light used?"
- No. The Marksman
systems are perfectly safe and can never harm your vision.
