The Range Firearms Diagnostic Unit (FDU) simultaneously captures the four key perspective of a shooter's technique to give instructors a first-person perspective in real-time.
- Sight picture
- Trigger control
- Posture & Stance
- Point of impact
The instructor can watch all components on the computer screen in real time. Upon completion, the instructor and trainee can review the shooter's technique in normal, slow and frame by frame motion. All video and trigger data are synchronized allowing the relationships between them to becomeclear to the trainee. For example, the video will show the front cross hair beginning to drop just before the shot (anticipation of recoil), the rising trigger pressure, and ultimately the shot which falls low on the target because of anticipation. The entire session, with instructor commentary, can be exported to video DVD for trainee review.
The Range FDU can be used with both live fire and laser training weapons.
