OutWest Systems Introduces Marksmanship Training

OutWest Systems has introduced a high-tech laser-based firearm training aid for shooters called the OCAT (Optical Computer-Aided Training) system that works inside a residence in laser mode or at the rifle/pistol range with live ammunition.

The system uses a compatible spotting scope or the OCAT system (Celestron Ultima 80) variable power spotting scope to aim at the target. Attach the OCAT system camera unit to the spotting scope. Plug it into your laptop with their exclusive software installed on it. They also sell a laptop if you do not have one. Follow a few quick start up steps and fire your shots.  

The scoped camera (back with you, not out in the dirt with the target) will show the target hits on the computer screen. And the program will immediately analyze the shot and provide instant verbal and visual feedback including location, order of shot, and timing of each shot. The OCAT system may also be set to give additional feedback and target analysis of shots fired. When you leave the range you can save all target information, images and analysis for later use at the click of a button.

The laser unit fits into your firearm's chamber and locks firmly and accurately into place for repeated precise shooting. Then you can fire at the OCAT system unit in the comfort of your own home using the same equipment and software as above. Using the firing pin activated laser with the OCAT system will show and track hits on the computer view of the target just as if you fired live ammunition.
