I work in an industry where buzzwords are the bread and butter of marketing people. All computer technology ultimately comes down to the buzzwords and whether or not there are enough of them. Needless to say when something awesome like a grenade launcher is combined with enough buzzwords to start a marketing campaign for a software solution I get a bit curious:
Combining a GPS, laser rangefinder and computer, the new Mk19 FCS (Fire Control System) enables gunners to put the first round on the target, at extreme ranges (over 2,000 meters). The FCS can also fire an accurate pattern of 40mm grenades at those same ranges.
GPS, lasers, and grenades all in one package! It’s amazing what our advances in technology can lead us to produce.
A tip of the old hat goes to The Firearm Blog for unveiling this amazing piece of technology.
