Lockheed Martin Has Won a $ 3.93 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to Develop High-tech rifle-scope attachment. Designed to Improve marksmanship over distances of between three and 600 meters, the Dynamic Image Optic Gunsight (DINGO) system has combined low power laser rangefinder, ballistics year embedded computer and onboard sensors determine wind That and Other environmental effects.
 Based on the One Shot Advanced Sighting System DINGO Calculates the range, digitally zoom in on the target and crosswind Automatically Transmits information to long-range sniper's scope, Modifying the Crosshairs to display the bullet's exact point-of-impact.

Lockheed Martin says the goal Is To Provide Accurate targeting with soldiers while Maintaining optical resolution and the Need to Change Without scopes.
 "Current scopes are optimized for a single target range, Impacting soldiers' Effectiveness and survivability When Engaging targets at different distances DURING a single mission," Said Dan Schultz, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Sensors Ship & Aviation Systems business . "Dingo Will solve this problem, Significantly Increasing soldiers' Ability to Rapidly reconfigure optics for use from short to long ranges and Improving Capabilities marksmanship for all soldiers."

The nine-month Phase 1 contract DINGO Will See the System Developed for use on M-4 and M-16 automatic rifles.

Recently Lockheed Martin Also Has Applied The One Shot crosswind measurement technology in a prototype spotter scope. The company says tactical field tests in December 2009 showed sniper That Were Able to Quickly engages targets and have fewer spectators grandir Their probability of a first-round hit by a Factor of Two distances at 1.000 meters Beyond.
