Swarovski Optik Announces New Smart Scope

Swarovski Optik North America has announced its new dS riflescope — completely new generation of riflescopes that combine the optical features of a conventional scope with the technology of digital targeting.

The new dS shows the correct aiming point as well as key ballistic data in a heads up display without distraction and in real time. The benefit for hunters are many: The correct aiming point is automatically displayed in the scope and a press of a button provides exact distance to the target, factoring in magnification setting, air pressure, temperature and angle, as well as personal ballistic data for the individual’s firearm/ammunition combination.

This new scope requires networking with a smart phone and data exchange is easily accomplished via a Bluetooth interface. According to Carina Schiesti-Swarovski, “This makes an important contribution in terms of allowing hunting to be carried out in a responsible manner all the time.”

Delivery of the new dS scope begins in July of 2017 in Europe and debuts in the U.S. at SHOT Show in January 2108.
