Melbourne, Australia–-(Ammoland.com)- Shot Doctor Technologies today launched their Kickstarter campaign for their groundbreaking Shot Doctor app. Containing a revolutionary ‘augmented reality’ technology, that allows a shooter to automatically identify their holdover position while accounting for various ballistic effects and environmental variables, it aims to revolutionize and simplify the way we shoot.
Together with a rugged cradle mount that seamlessly attaches an individual's mobile device to their optics, and a range of analytics to identify ways to improve an individual’s shooting abilities, Shot Doctor has something for everyone.
Ewan Williams, the individual behind Shot Doctor states “This is the ultimate firearm enthusiast’s companion, whether you’re a complete rookie or seasoned pro, Shot Doctor has a range of tools that will make your life easier.”
A full feature list and comparison can be viewed at http://www.shotdoc.net, along with a video that highlights the many features of Shot Doctor.

The key features of the software are detailed below:
Analytics & Ballistic Calculator
Visually look at a number of factory or handloads to compare their ballistic performance
Consider as many or as few variables as you want, turning them on/off or defining them with ease
Can take into consideration:
- ballistic coefficient
- velocity, time of flight, drop and lateral jump
- G1 – G7 and Pejsa drag
- vertical angles and gyroscopic drift
- Coriolis, Magnus, Poisson and Eotvos Effects
- effect of air density/pressure/temperature and more
Get numerical, unbiased data related to your ammunition, firearm system, personal performance, environmental variables etc. – delve as deeply as you like. Presents your shooting skill in an easily understood numerical score, allowing you to analyze your performance. Allows for simple analysis of variables that influence your shooting and highlights ways to improve.
The most advanced and unique concept ever conceived, allowing the shooter to eliminate every element of guess work
Three simple steps
- Quickly define a couple of variables (most are automatically set for you via data sources)
- Point your mobile devices camera at the target, like you want to take a photo (hold it by hand or use the rugged cradle)
At this point, your device calculates the precise holdover position for you, and highlights it – even showing you the correct crosshair for the optics you are using
- Aim and shoot
This rugged cradle device that attaches to your scope/optics means you’ll not have to worry about holding your device, then swapping to your firearm. Your device will simply integrate onto it – like looking at a miniature tv screen instead of putting your eye to the eyepiece/lens.
Oh, and you know all those variables mentioned in the ballistic calculator? You guessed it – it takes all those into account when running its calculations!
Access our database of handloads, which includes handloads automatically and anonymously provided via the app. Filter by calibre, firearm, barrel twist and other options so you can quickly identify the perfect load – no more trial and error establishing new loads. Track all your own handloads with ease, always know what you have in your safe, and more importantly what loads worked the best for each firearm. Link your handloads to their performance, including photos of the group or trophy for later analysis. All your data synced seamlessly to the cloud for fast, easy access whether you’re on your mobile, tablet or PC. This means no need to replicate your data in multiple locations or worry which data is up to date.
Firearm, Optic & Ammunition Databases
Extensive databases of:
- Factory ammunition
- All major projectile manufacturers projectiles
- Models of scopes/optics from hundreds of manufacturers, including reticles for use in augmented reality and elsewhere.
- Models of firearm from hundreds of manufacturers including each firearms technical specifications, barrel length, twist rate etc.
- Anonymous handload data searchable by calibre, firearm system, projectile weight and many more. No more guess work, no more trial and error, just find the best factory or handload ammunition with ease for your firearm and/or chosen application
- Anonymous database of where people have bagged game and in what conditions (without providing location specific information) to help you hunt more effectively
Data includes general area such as ‘Eastern Victoria’ or ‘North-Western Alberta’, elevation, environmental conditions, time of day, distance to target, total visibility plus plenty of other variables to look at. Start planning your hunting trips based on animal behaviour at certain times of day or in certain types of whether rather than relying on guess work, guides or experience you just don’t have
No need for a separate GPS device or paper map with our in-built navigation aid
See exactly where you are, where you have been, as well as other environment information like elevation and coordinates
Our map data has contour lines, tracks, roads, creeks, rivers, camp sites as well as everything else you would expect from a traditional paper map or GPS system
Allows you to easily navigate from one point to another, or use the in-built compass to set a bearing. See exactly what is ahead, how the lie of the land will change, all from a convenient and easy to use touch screen interface
All data integrates seamlessly with other aspects of Shot Doctor to minimise any manual entry of variables for analytics and ballistic calculations such as elevation
Hand in hand with the navigation aid comes our up-to-date weather information. No getting caught out in a sudden thunder storm or taking the wrong clothing on a day long hike or hunt. Look at a forecast for the day, access extended forecasts or delve as deeply as you like into the conditions around your area. Access estimated hourly temperatures, radar images and localised extreme weather warnings. All data integrates seamlessly with other aspects of Shot Doctor to minimise any manual entry of variables for analytics and ballistic calculations. No need to enter items such as relative humidity, wind speed and direction, ambient temperature and the like
