4500 Pocket Weather Meter w/HORUS Ballistics Software & Bluetooth - Desert Tan Night Vision
Part #: 0845HBTAN
Kestrel Pocket Weather Meters and HORUS Vision have partnered to provide a powerful shooting tool that combines the critical environmental data and targeting software solutions required for precision shooting -- all in one four-ounce pocket-sized unit. Previously, shooters would need to obtain environmental data from a Kestrel meter and then input that data into a PDA loaded with HORUS Ballistics Software. Now, the Kestrel Ballistics Weather Tracker with HORUS Ballistics Software contain all of the necessary data and solutions in one device to minimize user workload and distraction. Plus, the Kestrel meter is IP67 waterproof and MIL-STD-810F rugged, allowing users to avoid the expense and weight of a ruggedized PDA.
The Kestrel 4500 NV with HORUS Ballistics Software allows you to load, customize and store multiple guns, rounds and targets. Target parameters include distance, angle, longitude, speed, direction and wind. Kestrel's highly accurate measuring and averaging of wind together with built-in digital compass for target bearing and wind direction assists in defining the target winds. The Kestrel 4500 NV with HORUS Ballistics Software is available with Bluetooth technology, which allows you to communicate with your Kestrel wirelessly at a range of up to 30-feet, and maximize the battery life of your meter.

The unit allows users to load and customize multiple guns and rounds from the extensive proprietary HORUS database. Simple, intuitive screens allow the user to create up to five targets customized for location, distance, direction, declination and winds. The Kestrel meter's highly accurate measuring and averaging of wind and digital compass for target bearing and wind direction assists in defining the target winds. Once these parameters are set, the Kestrel meter takes over - tracking the current met data and automatically updating the firing solution using HORUS Ballistics Software advanced proprietary algorithms and taking coriolis and spin drift into account. No additional user input is required.
