Swarovski Optik has developed a “smart” riflescope with the dS. It provides hunters with intelligent support and represents a completely new generation of riflescope. This product highlights the optical features of a conventional riflescope and combines them with the technology of digital targeting to form an impressive, complete device.
The new dS shows not only the correct aiming point, but also the key ballistic data in a head-up display without any distraction and in real time. The key benefit for hunters is that the correct aiming point is displayed automatically in the riflescope. With the press of a button, the dS measures the exact distance to the target. Magnification setting, air pressure, temperature and angle are automatically factored in and the dS also takes into account the personal ballistic data for your firearm/ammunition combination.
The windage mark intervals are calculated based on the distance measured, the wind speeds set and the ballistic data.
The display shows the distance information, bullet energy and other features in a high-resolution head-up display that clearly provides you with all the data that can contribute to a successful shot.
The scope requires networking with a smartphone. Exchanging data is simple and straightforward via the Bluetooth interface. The personal data supplied when sighting in the target are input directly into the app and transmitted immediately.
Technical and long-range optical innovations, combined with the hunter’s own expertise, make it possible to remain totally focused even in challenging situations. “This makes an important contribution in terms of allowing hunting to be carried out in a responsible manner all the time,” says Carina Schiestl-Swarovski.
