Abstract:

A launcher training system includes a housing shaped to resemble a projectile launcher. A hollowed-out portion of the housing defines a boresight axis. An optical sight is coupled to the housing such that the boresight axis and the optical sights line-of-sight are fixed in relation to one another. The optical sight further defines a sight field-of-view FOV with a first reticle appearing therein. An imaging means in the hollowed-out portion of the housing generates an Image in an image FOV thereof. Transmission means are provided to transmit signals indicative of the image over the air waves. A remotely-located receiver station is provided to reproduce the image with a second reticle being overlaid thereon. The imaging means are adjustably positioned such that the image FOV is sighted along the boresight axis and such that the second reticle overlaid on the reproduced image appears at the same position as the first reticle in the sight FOV.
