A weapons company began this week rolling out a groundbreaking “smart” rifle that can target and track a moving object from long distance.
Trackingpoint began shipping the guns to customers Wednesday and also held a demonstration that Texas Gov. Rick Perry attended.
The rifle is precision guided with “lock and launch” technology similar to a fighter jet. It allows the shooter to designate a target using a digital scope with a ballistic calculator and multiple sensors. It can provide an accurate shot on moving targets for up to 1,200 yards.
