The Army has purchased 6 rifles from Trackingpoint. These rifles use a Linux powered optical sight (which I assume works with a CCD) to provide input to a shooter for range and holdoff to increase first round hit percentages.

Here’s a video showing how it works.

  2. I have this mental picture of someone looking thru the optic only to see “Windows has encountered a problem and is shutting down.”
