(Herstal, Belgium) – September 5, 2019. Belgium-based FN Herstal, one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of small caliber weapons and weapon systems, will showcase its newly-developed ballistic calculator at Defense and Security Equipment International Exhibition from September 10 through to September 13.

The most compact, high-performance ballistic calculator on the market

FN Herstal has developed a new compact weapon mounted range finder with an embedded ballistic solver and an all-in-one laser system. This ruggedized device fits to any squad weapon, and replaces devices like legacy laser aiming devices, handheld range finders and smartphone-based ballistic apps.

The FN® Ballistic Calculator enhances lethality by increasing hit probability and situational awareness, and simplifying target designation.

The FN® Ballistic Calculator combines ballistic sensors and laser capabilities in a small form factor. It integrates:

  • a unique ballistic solver capable of efficiently managing the effect of bullet trajectory
  • an advanced state-of-the- art laser range finder
  • a state-of-the-art OLED screen that displays relevant and accurate ballistic correction data in an optimum quality
  • a large number of designation capabilities such as a visible or infrared laser pointer , and a variable infrared illuminator
  • a system to quickly and securely attach the ballistic calculator onto the host weapon
  • different technologies such as Bluetooth or RS232 to connect to a soldier system or any other accessories

With the addition of this military quality product, FN Herstal continues to expand its FN® e-novation product line, which harnesses modern technology to further enhance the capabilities of the dismounted combatant.

The new FN® Ballistic Calculator can be seen on FN Herstal/FNH UK booth N2-300 – Belgian Pavilion, September 10-13, 2019.
