G&G M.I.T. Unit

G&G MIT Unit

G&G’s most interesting and innovative product at the IWA 2012 probably was their Military Intelligence Tracer Unit, short M.I.T. Unit. This device accommodates several functions, like a tracer unit, a visible laser, a BB counter and a chronometer to calculate the muzzle velocity, into the shape of a silencer. For the last two functions the silencer features a display on its side, which can be switched on or off.

Even more interesting though is a new feature that copies the concept of the MILES (Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System)[1], which is used by the US military for training, and transfers it into the airsoft world. The MILES is basically a laser tag system, where the laser is activated by blanks being fired from the rifle. The M.I.T. Unit now functions very similar: A sensor within the unit detects when a BB is fired and activates a short laser pulse, which would then activate sensors worn by other players when hit. The target sensor could then signal the hit with sound and/or light, but G&G has not decided yet how these would look like, how many they would use or how exactly they will be worn by the players. Here they are looking for the potential customer’s feedback to find the optimal solution.

Anyways, the basic idea is to combine laser tag with airsoft, so that the advantages of both worlds can be utilized. At close distances the game would be the same as usual but beyond the maximal effective range of the BB pellets of roughly 50 m, encounters would still be possible up to around 300 m,  thanks to the laser system, while the general airsoft feeling is still sustained.

The M.I.T. Unit itself has a 14 mm counter-clockwise thread and its batteries were said to last up to one week in standby. It will be released this summer around June.

"At close distances the game would be the same as usual but beyond the maximal range of the BB pellets of about 45 m, encounters would still be possible up to around 300 m, thanks to the laser system, while the general airsoft feeling is still sustained."

45 meter maximal range!!!:O what Airsoft guns do you play with? Even an AEP (sub 250 fps) could outrange that.

Well, ok, I was more referring to the maximal effective range, but it's true, you still can get a little more. It was a careful guess; let's, make it 50 m, not including highly tuned sniper rifles ;-)

It would be interesting to include devices such as this into milsim events. Focusing on realism, using blowback guns would benefit from this extended range. If the devices can be set to have range respective to the weapon they are attached to, marksman wouldnt be limited to close, unrealistic engagements in airsoft.

you do realize what meter is right? and that roughly 170 feet is pretty far for an airsoft gun of average quality

you do realize what meter is right? 45 meter is under 150 feet.

Oh god please don't let airsoft go in this direction. I don't want it to become too professional or too serious as either will ruin the sport. This is just one more expendature that most of us can't afford. It's also one more thing to fool with at a CQB site. I play for fun and am more than happy with people just calling their hits. I certainly don't need some fancy, expensive gadget dragging things down.

What?? more than 45 METERS??? I guess you are thinking about FEET....45 mts are more than 150 ft..an aep would reach 6 or max 10 mts...or 30- 40 feet!!

45 meter is less then 150 feet, so does google say http://bit.ly/H5R19j

And I'm talking about an stock TM MP7 shooting at 244 fps, and that does for sure fire longer then 40 feet!
