The TrackingPoint XactSystem Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) sniper rifle system was the first product DefenseReview (DR) reported on from SHOT Show 2013 because of how important we believe the technology to be. In our opinion, it represents the future of long-range interdiction (sniping), and is a potential game changer for infantry warfare, including urban warfare.
Anyway, the original video footage DR shot was range video, but we subsequently shot significantly more detailed video footage at the Tracking Point booth on the exhibition floor, and we're glad we did.
Bret Boyd was kind enough to spend some time with us really detailing the Xact System. In the second video (Part 2), listen to what Mr. Boyd says about the XactSystem PGF scope's predictive image processing engine and Barnes XactShot precision ammo (XactShot Ammunition).
The following is our interview with him and a couple of additional photos from the TrackingPoint booth:
