MADE IN U.S.A.PNI Sensor TargetPoint DMCPNI’s TargetPoint DMC delivers unbeatable accuracy and reliability in the harshest conditions. It is a key enabler in situational awareness, threat detection and neutralization. TargetPoint combines PNI's patented magneto-inductive sensors and measurement circuitry with a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer for unparalleled cost effectiveness and performance. Qualified as a drop-in replacement in the STORM-mLRF program, TargetPoint is an ideal choice for far target locators and laser range finders that require real-world reliability and performance.

Same specs. Made and supported in the USA.

TargetPoint provides the same performance as exsiting DMCs, and it is a drop-in replacement in the STORM mLRF. The TargetPoint DMC module is extensively tested to military standards, including weapon shock, to ensure specifications are consistently met.
