THE pointing systems are devices or technologies that allow for the identification and tracking of a specific target or object. These systems can be used in different contexts, such as in astronomy, aviation, sea and land navigation, security and defense systems, games and sports.

Typically, a pointing system it works by detecting the position of the target and following it in real time. There are several types of pointing systemsamong which:

  • Mechanical pointing systems: These use mechanical components, such as motors and gears, to point and track a target.
  • Optical pointing systems: These use light and lenses to locate and track a target.
  • Radar targeting systems: These use radio waves to locate and track a target.
  • Laser pointing systems: These use a laser beam to locate and track a target.

Pointing systems are essential in many fields, as they allow you to identify and follow moving objects with precision and reliability.

What is the red dot aiming system?

The aiming system “red dot” (red dot) is a type of optical pointing system mainly used in target shooting, sport shooting and hunting activities as well as Softair. The red dot aiming system involves the use of a viewfinder equipped with a red luminous reticle which is projected onto the viewfinder lens and which indicates the position of the target.

The red dot sighting system works by using an LED light source that emits a beam of red light, which is reflected off a specialized lens that projects a red dot onto the viewfinder glass. The red dot is placed on top of the target, allowing the user to align the weapon and aim accurately.

The red dot aiming system has several advantages over traditional viewfinders. First, the red dot allows you to acquire your target faster and more accurately than with conventional sights. In addition, the red dot sighting system is easier to use in low-light or high-voltage situations.

Finally, the red dot sighting system is very versatile and can be used successfully on different types of Airsoft weapons, such as pistols, rifles and carbines.
