As militaries face increasingly complex near-peer and insurgent threats, the common soldier's shooting position is rarely ideal and the distance to their target is never marked. IFOBS aims to automatically compensate for ballistic variables using a laser rangefinder and accelerometers integrated into the optic itself. In addition, a testbed will be developed to verify the accuracy of the ballistic solution from the optic. With a press of a button, a simple point of aim is generated to the shooter who can then return effective fire on target.

The use of rifle scopes greatly enhances accuracy and marksmanship of a shooter and is a crucial component of military training. When discussing army training, accuracy and efficacy are crucial. AeroTrack Research Inc. is proud to introduce a cutting-edge ballistics tracking system designed to revolutionise the shooting experience. Our main goal is to create a sophisticated device that shows precise aiming and bullet drop points to a shooter.

At AeroTrack, we value simplicity and efficiency. To accurately calculate the bullet drop point, our innovative system uses projectile motion principles combined with environmental factors. We can reliably determine the distance, elevation, and cant angle by incorporating a laser rangefinder and accelerometer into the design, providing shooters with real-time, data-driven insights for precise targeting. We will provide a detailed overview of the system in this proposal document. We are committed to delivering a dependable, user-friendly, and cost-effective solution that sets a new standard in the shooting industry as AeroTrack Research Inc.'s first product.
Undergraduate Engineering Science students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
