OutWest Systems, Inc. today announced it will demonstrate the new Optical Computer-Aided Training (OCAT)System at the Colorado Springs Gun Show, April 6–7, at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center.
At shooting ranges throughout the United States, sportsmen and avid shooters are frustrated with the high price and poor availability of ammunition. The OCAT System solves this problem with its unique dry fire (laser) mode, which uses a laser bullet instead of live ammunition.
“The OCAT System addresses the ammunition shortage head on with its advanced laser mode”, said Paul Weissler, President and CEO of OutWest Systems.“ The laser mode works with pistols and rifles and supports all of the most popular calibers.”
The OCAT System is an affordable marksmanship training system that helps shooters quickly improve their marksmanship skills. The system, which works in laser mode and live fire mode, provides instant feedback and in-depth analysis of every shot fired. It’s like having a spotter and a coach available at any time and at any place.
Shooters can use the system indoors, outdoors or at a firing range. It’s lightweight, sets up in seconds, and doesn’t require any external power sources. With the OCAT System, there is no need to walk down range or look through a scope to verify your hits. The system provides real-time audio and visual feedback and analysis to help sportsmen and avid shooters become better marksmen.
The OCAT System:
- continuously monitors and shows the target in real time on the laptop display;
- automatically compensates for changing conditions, such as camera and target movement; and changes in lighting, such as sun, clouds, shade, etc.;
- is sensitive enough to detect hits as small as .177 caliber and laser pulses as short as 60 milliseconds (laser mode);
- works with any firearm, pellet gun, or Airsoft gun—virtually anything that punches a hole in the target;
- provides real-time video and audio feedback so the shooter can keep looking downrange while listening as hits are reported; and
- records all of the hits in a database so the shooters can compare results and identify common shooting mistakes.
“The OCAT System brings to the typical target shooter the type of marksmanship training system normally available only to training facilities and high-level competitive shooters”, said Jim Cline, Vice President and COO of OutWest Systems.“ The system’s laser mode provides a very real way to train by allowing the shooter to use their own pistols and rifles without the need for using any live ammunition.”
The OCAT System is available in four standard configurations—the Basic System Kit, Standard System Kit, Deluxe System Kit and Laser System Kit. The systems are available online at www.OCATS.com and through OutWest System partners at www.OCATS.com/partners.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
