Pyser-SGI of the UK has just received notification of a multi-million dollar contract award to supply several thousands of its Small Arms Collimators (SACs) to the US Army.
The contract involves SACs for the US Army snipers and will be delivered progressively over the next few months. A spokesman for Pyser-SGI said "We are very excited and proud that our SACs have been selected by the US Army for its snipers and to add those users to the many others already deploying our SACs on operational missions throughout the world." Pyser-SGI SACs are used by individual soldiers in theatre to zero, check zero and regain zero with no live firing in just a few seconds, including when changing sights, and are accurate and repeatable to better than 2.5cm at 100m. They can be used on any weapon type, in calibres from 4.6mm to 50 cal and can zero any type of sighting system including iron, day optical, NV, IR and laser types. They considerably increase first hit probability and give the soldier the confidence that his weapon is properly and accurately zeroed at all times. SACs were first adopted by UK forces and are now used in approximately 40 countries including in "Soldier of the Future" programmes.
