Now with this unit your ballistic software gets your atmospheric conditions automatically with out the need to input the data manually. Humidity, Temperature, Station or Barometric pressure and Wind being updated in real time so that its ready before you are. Here is the press release on the new product that you will be seeing soon……………
HORUS BALLISTICS SOFTWARE AND KESTREL WEATHER TRACKER ARE NOWTOGETHER IN ONE UNIT
Horus Vision has teamed with Kestrel Weather Meters to introduce the Horus Kestrel, acompact ballistics instrument for long-range shooting.
SAN BRUNO, CA…Horus Vision, the leader of long-range shooting innovation, hasteamed up with Kestrel Weather Meters to introduce the breakthrough Horus Kestrel-the first device to incorporate weather (atmospherics) data directly into ballisticssolutions in real-time.
The relationship between Horus and Kestrel kindled as a response for the military’smission to obtain consolidated gear to minimize redundancy and bulk. All the powerof ATrag Ballistics is now integrated in the four-ounce pocket sized Kestrel WeatherTracker, eliminating the need for a separate piece of gear (which comes with a numberof accessories you would have to lug around, as well).
This integrated Kestrel 4500NV unit features five customizable targets, an extensivegun list, and Horus’ proprietary truing technology. This pairing is only offered in the4500 model as it is the only one that is capable of collecting wind direction – which iscrucial for long-range shooting. The Night Vision (NV) series is the preferred modelfor the military because of its dim red back light that does not obscure or bleach outyour natural vision in low light situations. The Horus Kestrel comes in two colors- OliveDrab and Desert Tan, and is IP67 and MIL-STD-810G Rugged. All compacted into ahand sized unit that takes two AAA batteries- no chargers, plugs, or over-sized energy sources.
Horus and Kestrel are prime candidates for this type of integration, because both arewell-known and highly respected in the military and government communities. Bothproducts have seen extensive action overseas and are relied upon in the daily lives ofthe sniper community. The Horus Kestrel will be available early in 2011, following SHOT Show, and will be available to purchase on both Horus Vision and Kestrel websites. Preliminary suggested price is around $739, the Horus Kestrel is less than a PDA with ATrag and Kestrel Combo.
