US Army Fields Sniper Weapon Collimators
JACKSONVILLE, FL, January 10, 2013 - Telluric Group has begun delivery of Pyser-SGI Limited Small Arms Collimators (SAC) Kits to the US Army for inclusion in the Advanced Sniper Accessory Kit (ASAK). The SAC Kits, referred to by the Army as Sniper Weapon Collimators (SWC), are designed for use with the M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS) and the M2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle (ESR). They will also work with legacy M24 sniper rifles. The collimators serve two purposes. First, they speed up the initial live-fire zero process for weapons that have not yet been zeroed (i.e. during sniper training). Second, and most critically, they allow deployed snipers to accurately check zero in any environment, without live fire. By ensuring that weapons are always zeroed, SACs improve Soldiers’ confidence in their weapons and enhance operational effectiveness.
Small Arms Collimators are available for assault rifles, sniper weapons, machine guns, and grenade launchers. They work with iron sights, day optics, and image intensified night vision optics. Collimators are also available for thermal weapon sights and for IR and visible laser aiming devices.
SACs are manufactured by Pyser-SGI Limited, a leading British defense company that has been supplying cutting edge optical and electro-optical technology to military forces and police special operations units worldwide for more than 140 years. Their products include small arms collimators, image intensified and thermal night vision devices, long-range surveillance equipment, binoculars, and compasses. They are fully accredited to ISO 9001:2008 standards.. Telluric Group is the exclusive US distributor for Pyser-SGI. Telluric is also a leading provider of firearms and night vision training. They are the official US training partner for Aimpoint, the originator and world leader in electronic red dot sighting technology.
