Spec ops optics: US forces seek new sights and ways to defeat fog | Military Times

Must Read

The U.S. Special Operations Command intends to modernize its close-quarters combat weaponry.

The U.S. Special Operations Command intends to update its weapon sights for close-quarters combat. A holographic company, SU-231 technology, put a dot into the shooter’s field of vision, not visible on the actual target. SOCOM also wants data-display-capable transparent glass and a solution to the frustrating issue of fogged-up lenses. Depending on the source, details will be disclosed to the industry in July or August. SOCOM intends to provide transparent glass visual augmentation to the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Fire Control.

The sight would provide ballistics calculator data, direction information, and networking to other devices on the Army’s newest rifle and machine gun combination. SOCOM just purchased many night vision gadgets, and its employees will not receive more for at least many years.
