Inteliscope Predicts Bullet Trajectory, No Matter Shooter’s Position

A digital tactical scope – you bet there’s an app for that!

The Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter App hit the market in June, giving shooters easy access to what is becoming a popular option in firearms optics. The iPhone and iPod Touch compatible app gives shooters a range of functions – from a catalog of reticles to windage and ballistic data, even the option to record video.

The Sandpoint, Idaho company recently took the app to the next level with its 1.4 release doing a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to ballistic calculation. The defining feature of the update is the app’s ability to calculate bullet trajectory, even if the gun is not kept on an even plane.

Be the gun tilted or completely upside down, the software’s algorithm predicts the bullet’s trajectory and corrects the aiming point in the direction in which gravity is pulling. The app continuously adjusts to the gun's angle putting the reticle on target, no matter the shooter’s position.

The trajectory prediction algorithm is not the only new bell and whistle in the update. The app also offers a novel way to sight in. The app shifts the background video of the shot, rather than the reticle, in turn the crosshairs always remain centered on screen.

This changes, the company boasts, “coupled with the wide viewing area of the Inteliscope system, significantly improves time-on-target and allows shooters to easily aim around obstacles with zero head exposure!”

Considering the price of rifle optics today, Inteliscope is extremely affordable – it’s free for download at the Apple App Store. The Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter is available for $99.

  1. Elwood,
    Nice article, thanks for the write-up. I’m with Inteliscope and I just wanted to note that we just released version 1.60 for Apple devices and we’ll be launching Android and new hardware at SHOT Show 2014 in mid-January. We’re just getting started here and have a number of very interesting upgrades in development.
