Sniper Data Book

Thermal energy is transmitted in the infrared wavelength 1 to microns. Thermal infrared imagers translate the energy transmitted within the infrared wavelength into data that can be processed into multiple forms. Wind is created by the sun's uneven heating of the atmosphere.

In other words, this is air in motion -- usually found as a horizontal motion to the earth. It is produced by differences in atmospheric pressure that are caused by temperature differences.

Thermal sensors could be designed to record atmospheric temperatures and their movements. LIDAR is similar to radar but it is an optical radar that uses short pulses of laser light. The laser bean is scattered by the particles called aerosols that make up the atmosphere due to a process called Rayleigh scatter. Photons from the laser beam that hit a molecule are scattered in all directions with equal probability. Some of the laser light is scattered back to a telescope.

If the particles are moving, the scattered light has a slight shift in frequency, called a Doppler shift, due to the motion of the particle relative to the telescope. By analyzing the frequency of the Doppler shift, the changes in wind velocity along the laser beam's path can Page four be determined. Satellites that monitor weather patterns are currently utilizing this technique. Can thermal infrared imagers or LIDAR sensors detect a curtain of wind -- meters downrange and 50 meters wide -- that is moving perpendicular to the sniper who has scoped a target meters downrange?

It seems reasonable to assume that if the technology can be created to detect, then it can be incorporated into the computerized optoelectronic riflescope to determine wind speed and direction.

The KISS Principle is a concept that contrasts an existing object or method with those that have been proposed for the future, particularly those future objects or methods that are more complicated but perform the same function as those in use today. Today, a specialty rifle rest such as Center Mass' Sharpshooters Rifle Rest may or may not be a part of the sniper's gear -- largely depends upon the nature of the mission.

Do I predict that tomorrow a specialty rest will be part of the scoped rifle?

No, I predict that it will still be a part of the sniper's gear and will not be integrated into the scoped rifle.

However, I can envision it becoming lighter and easier to set-up and takedown, but I don't see it being integrated into the scoped rifle. On the other hand, we do see attached bipod rifle rests -- the bipod concept, best exemplified by the Harris Bipod and the Versa Pod, are now being integrated into rifles; e.

So I see integrated rifle bipod rests for the future, but not an integrated specialty rifle rest such as The Sharpshooters Rifle Rest. As a side note, I suspect the integrated bipod rest will make the Chandler brothers unhappy see 4, for their views on rifle stocks , but evolution -- either biological or mechanical has experienced more failures than successes. Either we are not aware of or soon forget the failures but instead, tend to focus on the successes.

The Chandlers' position may prevail for some time into the future. I want to look at another item -- also ancillary to the scoped sniper rifle and its cartridge, in order to review its current role and suggest what its role might be in the future, particularly if signs now exist that it will evolve either as free standing or integrated into either the scope or rifle.

I've selected the field data book a. Before examining the field data book, a terminology foundation should be established because my perception is that a universal adoption of terminology is lacking. From my vantage point, it appears that three separate entities exist within or ancillary to the field data book.

These entities may stand alone, combined as two i. Page six The training logbook is used with the purpose of establishing zero's under a variety of altitudinal and environmental conditions -- similar in logic to the competitive shooter's logbook. It represents the totality of all rounds fired with different lots of cartridges. If the training book were a "stand-alone", then it probably would not go into the field.

The mission log book has shooting data represented as zero summary tables along with formulae that factor the influences of wind, angle of fire etc. After a LE mission is completed, the pages are probably duplicated to stand as a permanent record for future training as well as for evidence in potential liability cases. In the military mission, the pages may be retained for intelligence gathering and for future training.

In the meantime, use this one or that one and understand the logic behind its design. Finally, commercial field data books are available, which vary in price -- depending upon their complexity and accessory items such as a carrying case. Note: Mike Lau devotes an entire chapter of his book entitled The Military and Police Sniper to managing the field data book and it is recommended reading for those in the early stages of using a field data book 7.

Rather than reviewing all the commercial field data books, I've examined two books. Both are excellent, but each is quite different from the other. Different because the authors addressed different goals, which are based upon their previous experiences. From my perspective, one book though designed for both LE and military snipers, it has a "military" feel to it while the other clearly is oriented toward the LE sniper.

The contrast is striking. After reviewing the books' contents, I want to discuss how the information conveyed by these books might be used in the future. For example, will these books evolve as separate entities or will the information somehow be incorporated into the scoped rifle? At this time, I predict the latter.

The two books under review have the same name: Sniper Data Book. Both are the same size 5. Both books have the advantage in that a Mildot Master is the same size and can be taped to either the inside front or back cover. Page eight The first book, produced by Snipercraft Inc. P, made its appearance in The people behind these books are well known to the readers of Tactical Shooter magazine. From Snipercraft, Inc. Kent Gooch and Hugo Teufel are the sparkplugs behind T.

Currently, he is the chief instructor at Storm Mountain Training Center. Hugo is also a core staff member for Tactical Shooter magazine and is well known for his great articles. Before reviewing these two commercial field data books, a short examination of the origin and evolution of the field data book is in order. History helps to guide us to the future -assuming we pay attention.

Most snipers preferred to establish their "hides" a British term yards behind the front line in order to obtain a better field of fire. Multiple hides were selected.

Once the target became visible, the observer voiced the determined range followed by the sniper making his adjustments and taking his shot. Along with the range card was a log listing the sight settings, ammunition used, wind, temperature and other environmental and altitudinal conditions. Using this information, a sniper was able to obtain a total picture of the conditions and how these conditions affected his shooting.

Some snipers listed their kills, while others did not. Evolution of the field data book appears not to be extensive through World War II. Reasons may vary, but the experiences by the Russian snipers may be similar to snipers from other nations.

Attempts were made to introduce field logbooks to snipers; but by in large, snipers disregarded the books and didn't take them into action. Instead, they settled for basic information, marked on a small piece of paper, together with a map. The logic was not to be caught with information and thus identified as a sniper. In case they were captured, a small piece of paper could be chewed and swallowed in a hurry.

In addition, many snipers carried a submachine gun or an assault rifle with a folding stock on their back. The sniper rifle would be discarded and the sniper would be captured with a standard weapon.

Page ten My search for information on the evolution of the field data book during the Korean conflict turned up little. My assumption is that what was used came out of the World War II, which seems logical as much of the weapons used came out of that war. The range cards are similar to those used today and were carried into the field. Entries were made into the data book during training sessions and following a mission, but the book was not carried on a mission Recording "hits," whether wounded or killed was an important data gathering process.

Let's examine the two sniper data books. Both books represent the extreme ends of a quantitative spectrum. The first produced by Snipercraft Figure 1 provides four pages of a "rounds fired log" followed by 73 pages of 5-round cranial silhouette log Figure 2.

The second produced by T. P Figure 3 provides 14 pages of very useful tables followed by 13 sections of multiple shooting exercises Table I. The first eight sections are intended as "data" pages, while the last five sections are intended as "mission" pages.

The latter are intended from the LE sniper who would only use them if departmental policy permits or for the practical field shooter in a course in which tactical scenarios are performed. Each section has one exercise that is represented by duplicate pages of varying length.

Page eleven Is one better than the other? They are not comparable -- one's an apple while the other is an orange. The authors have different goals and those goals are presented extremely well in each book. Derrick informed me that in the early 's his agency was in need of a new data book for the sniper team.

At that time, all that were available were geared toward the military sniper. Even though much of the information presented in these books was of interest to Derrick and his colleagues, as police snipers, they wanted a way to record headshots and nothing more. A review of Figure 3 illustrates a non-complicated recording log that achieves this goal.

Five numbered "point of aim," small cranial-silhouettes record the sniper's intent while the large cranial silhouette represents the results based on the number from the small cranial silhouette. Also included is a silhouette to record the cold shot. Finally, nicely packaged on the page is a place to record minimal environmental conditions as well as rifle, cartridge, spotter and shooter information.

The Snipercraft's Sniper Data Book is well-organized, simple to use and records the appropriate data for the police sniper. Clearly, this book is meant for training and well as to take on a mission as a reference to the data that was recorded during the last training session.

Page twelve Upon receiving T.

It was evident than these gentlemen had spent a great deal of time on this endeavor. Contrasting this data book with that from Snipercraft, it was clear that the targeted audience was the practical field shooter; i. Because of the extensive amount of information presented by T.

Jeff was enthusiastic with the T. Sniper Data Book, particularly the logbook's range tables, which include preprinted images of commonly encountered items. He felt that it would serve the LE sniper well and that it would be useful to the LE sniper once they understood the fundamentals as they continue to train. Clearly, the T. Request a Quote.
