Wireless Remote Aiming Systems
Wireless remote aiming systems mounted on a weapon: Comprising of an rf transmitter at least three switches mounted the handgrip pcb. The transmitter signal to The receiver activates one or more of at least two lasers and/or the led light source depending on the signal that was sent to the receiver. At least one of the lasers mounted within the enclosure housing is an it laser and the other maybe a red, green or blue in color laser. The rf transmitter and/or the receiver have a build in encoder/decoder with an rf frequency hopper. two or more of the wireless remote aiming systems will not be in the same frequency at the same time and interference.
The invention pertains generally to the wireless remote aiming systems and practically to their use with the firearms/weapons.
Firearms have many types of aiming devices and light sources: for example iron sights, scopes and lasers. Some light sources come in many configurations and sizes, some with led, incandescent and/or xenon light source. These lasers and lighting devices, all have a few things in common. They all have a pressure switch within the plastic and/or a small push button on the end caps of the device to power them on. These types of devices make it difficult to maintain control of the firearm/weapon. The devices mentioned above are all in use by law enforcement, military and civilians alike today. The use of the pressure switch and/or the end cap button switches simultaneously makes holding the firearm/weapons difficult and unstable.
A new innovation in targeting Technology.
These types of devices are mounted to the firearm/weapons with the use of a screw and a clamp onto the weaver/picatinny rails on the firearm/weapon. The switches that come with the devices are also mounted onto the same weaver/picatinny rails. The methods used to mount the switches onto the firearm/weapons are with two face tape, Velcro or are wire tied to the firearm/weapon. Same times a combination of two or more of the above methods have been used; to fix the switches onto the firearm/weapon has been used.BACKGROUND OF INVENTIONS Field of Invention
Some have also used black electrical tape with the methods mentioned above. These devices all come with a long pressure switch cord that is used to connect the pressure switch to the batteries. When using the Velcro and two faced tape on the flat plastic pressure switches they have been known to fall off. If the cord that is attached to the device gets hooked onto some thing or they work their way off over a period of time.
While lasers aiming devices have been used for targeting, it will not illuminate the targets or the surrounding area. Consequently it's both desirable and sometimes necessary to have ones firearm/weapon equipped with a laser aiming device and/or IR flashlight source or a visible flashlight lighting source.
The device has to stay powered on or the operator has to reach over to wear the device is and push the button with their thumb to have the light stay lite or turn off. When the operator no longer needs the light that was left on they have to reach over to turn it off. They have to release full control of the firearm/weapon. This action has to be repeated each time the operator needs to power on one or both of the attached devices.
These are some of the drawbacks to the current devices on the market and some are more difficult to use. Some include the use of a selector switch within its design which makes it even a more challenging task.
By incorporating the control to both the laser and/or the flashlight to the handgrip the operator can maintain full control of the firearm/weapon and also can control the mounted devices, to only when he/she needs them to be on.THE INVENTION SUMMARY
The invention is comprised of a hand grip with a transmitter; at least 3 switches on a pcb and soft cover with finger grooves in the front of the hand grip. A receiver comprising the enclosure housing with at least two lasers and its housing mounting, of which at least one of the laser is an it laser diode and one of red, green or blue laser diode with adjusting for both the elevation and windage. With a led light source and it may have an antenna and at least one output on the enclosure housing.
The system also has an adaptor unit comprising of at least two outputs for attaching the motorized remote focus flashlight and/or a laser with connecting cords. And a flashlight comprising of a motorized remotely focus light source into a beam or a flood light source of IR or LED visible light. All of the components are made to work as a unit; one handgrip and enclosure housing or one handgrip and adaptor with at least two outputs and the remote focus flashlight and/or a laser.
This invention is exploits in the design of the handgrip and the wireless remotes, transmitter and the receiver, by intergrading these into a unit the system has put to use the best of the system into one complete unit.
The wireless remote aiming systems will also improve targeting and lamination of the area in front of the operator of the firearm/weapon by having the control in the handgrip since the operator has his/her hand on the grip most of the times.
The invention connection cord comes in other configurations and sizes so that the operator can use some of the lasers and/or flashlights that they may have on their firearm/weapons.THE INVENTION SUMMARY
With the use of the wireless remote aiming systems the operator can immediately take hold of his/her firearm/weapon and place the laser on the target and/or illuminate his/her target or the area around their self and not have to look for the plastic switch cover.BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS
