Belgium-based FN Herstal, one of the world’s leading firearms manufacturers, will exhibit its FN® Expert marksmanship training system at the upcoming IDEX trade show, Abu Dhabi, from February 19 through to 23, 2017.Designed and developed by Noptel – an FN Herstal subsidiary that specializes in innovative, optoelectronic systems – the FN® Expert is an advanced marksmanship training solution that can be attached to any rifle or carbine to provide dry, blank and live fire training for shooters and trainers operating in defense and security.
By providing shooters using their own service weapon with instant feedback on their performance, the FN® Expert accelerates the improvement in fundamental marksmanship skills (holding, aiming, breathing and triggering), as well as develops muscle memory. It also facilitatesinstructors’ coaching skills by providing objective tools to measure shooter performance. Indeed, the FN® Expert measures rifle movement during aiming and triggering, detects the shot, shows the location of both the hit and miss, and shows and analyzes the shooter’s performance in a simple, graphical and numerical way.
The FN® Expert can be used everywhere, indoors with simulated shooting distances or outdoors with life-size targets and real shooting distances up to 300m, even in confined spaces including unconventional training areas such as deployed operating bases, warships or police stations.Safe, efficient and easy to use, the FN® Expert accelerates training and embodies FN Herstal’s motto of ‘Enhancing capability through technology’.Attendees at the IDEX trade show, Abu Dhabi, can request a demonstration of the FN® Expert by visiting FN Herstal at its exhibition stand.
