Abstract

This proposal applies new technologies to combat weapons sights. The Siegenthaler and Rotge' (S&R) optical sight concept will be developed into a combat sight to meet the needs of the United States Marine Corps. The S&R optical sight concept is well suited for combat because it is rugged, compact, and lightweight. This user friendly sight requires very little training. The sight is compatible with the M16A2 rifle and will be tested by the U.S. Marines under quasi-operational conditions.
