Low tech, high utility graphical distance & altitude computers.
Wndsn Telemeters are simple observational tools for measuring angles via various inputs combined with a number of means to directly process the acquired values.
In the face of potential high-frequency disturbances, low tech becomes valuable as a backup or main tool. Our distance & altitude nomographs revive ancient technologies and unite them for the first time in low tech, high value instruments.
Our current flagship, a multitool for emergency navigation, for training and education, as a visualization tool or to get a second opinion; the Wndsn Quadrant Telemeter is a naked-eye observation powerhouse of critical functions in one durable, low tech, high utility instrument that can be brought anywhere and belongs in every instructor's and survival kit.
