Laser Rangefinders with Nick Vitalbo
01:17:52 | Nick Vitalbo is Applied Ballistics’ Chief Software Engineer. In addition to leading all software integration efforts between AB and all our partners, Nick is also an expert in laser rangefinder technology. In fact, prior to working with AB, Nick worked for Lockheed Martin on projects involving laser/light waves moving thru the atmosphere. We picked Nick’s brain about the potential of atmospheric refraction moving the apparent target image, which was very enlightening. The bulk of the interview is Nick speaking to Bryan and a whole room full of Applied Ballistics staff and brand ambassadors about laser rangefinder design and performance. The conversation follows Chapter 8 of Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting – Volume 2, which is a Chapter that Nick authored in 2016. If you ever wondered how Laser Rangefinders work, what the constraints are for making them work better, and how ambient light conditions affect your LRF performance, this episode is a must!
