    Cool Trijiconís New Handheld Range-Finder Will Map the Wind for Extreme Accuracy



    Trijicon Inc. recently unveiled a new range finder that can read wind conditions several hundred meters down range.

    The Trijicon Ventus is the "world's first handheld device with advanced wind mapping and wind detection," according to a video on Trijicon's website.

    "With the Trijicon Ventus, you can measure wind up to 500 yards away and range targets at 5,000 yards," the video states. "The Ventus is designed with a Doppler Lidar engine that can measure headwind, tailwind, crosswind and vertical wind components at six different distances in any weather condition."

    Doppler Lidar (DL) operates in "the near-infrared and is sensitive to backscatter from atmospheric aerosol, which are assumed to be ideal tracers of atmospheric wind fields," according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility website.

    I'm afraid to know what that's going to cost

    Wondering if it will detect who passed wind.
