Kestrel Pocket Weather Meters and Horus Vision have partnered to provide a powerful shooting tool that combines the critical environmental data and targeting software solutions required for precision shooting -- all in one four-ounce pocket-sized unit. Previously, shooters would need to obtain environmental data from a Kestrel meter and then input that data into a PDA loaded with Horus ATrag ballistics software. Now, the Kestrel Ballistics Weather Tracker with Horus ATrag Software contains all of the necessary data and solutions in one device to minimize user workload and distraction. Plus, the Kestrel meter is IP67 waterproof and MIL-STD-810F rugged, allowing users to avoid the expense and weight of a ruggedized PDA.
The new unit allows users to load and customize multiple guns and rounds from the extensive proprietary Horus database. Simple, intuitive screens allow the user to create up to six targets customized for location, distance, direction, declination and winds. The Kestrel meter's highly accurate measuring and averaging of wind and digital compass for target bearing and wind direction assists in defining the target winds. Once these parameters are set, the Kestrel meter takes over - tracking the current met data and automatically updating the firing solution using Horus ATrag advanced proprietary algorithms and taking coriolis and spin drift into account. No additional user input is required.
All of the Kestrel Horus models have a night-vision (NV) preserving backlight, which helps sustain the user's natural night vision. The backlight is also much dimmer than a standard backlight, making it more difficult to detect with the naked eye during night operations.
Kestrel 4500H models with wireless Bluetooth technology offer the ultimate in portable and accurate environmental data. Now, both real-time and logged data can be transferred wirelessly and automatically to a laptop or PDA. Wireless data transmission eliminates the need for a separate interface and cabling. Includes custom communication software designed to quickly and easily configure your data transmission frequency, download logged data, graph data, and transfer data to other applications. Data transmission range adjustment allows you to maximize power to communicate with your Kestrel within a 30 foot range, or reduce power for closer, more secure operation. Individual unit ID’s ensure you pair with the Kestrel you want, even when more than one system is operating in the same area. Permanently coded unique 4-digit Pin numbers provide extra security when pairing and transmitting data.
