Crew-served thermal weapon sights, U.S. Army, .50 Caliber Machine Gun | MilitaryTimes

The U.S. Army will soon begin to produce wireless, crew-served thermal weapons sights that connect to a soldier’s helmet display, service officials recently told Scout Warrior.

Using a wireless link, gun-mounted thermal sights send a targeting reticle from the gun to a soldier head-worn display, allowing soldiers to hit targets without needing to physically “look” through the gun-sights themselves.
Designed for the M2 .50-cal, M240 machine gun and Mk 19 grenade launcher, the system brings higher-resolution thermal imaging technology and increases field of view, developers explained.
