Elbit Systems of America subsidiary Kollsman is to produce its multispectral, clip-on weapon night sight for the USMC.

The selection is part of Phase II of the Integrated Clip-on Advanced Targeting Sight (ICATS) programme and will require the company to design, build and test two sophisticated ICATS prototypes for the USMC over the next year.

The ICATS solution will be designed and produced at the Elbit Systems of America EO facility in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

ICATS aims to furnish the USMC with the capability to engage in day and night operations at extreme stand-off distances.

The Kollsman solution clips onto a weapon and provides critical information to the user, even in low-light or inclement weather, Elbit Systems of America stated on 8 September.

The clip-on sight is configured to provide simultaneous imaging across extended ranges without adding considerable weight to the weapon.

Elbit Systems of America already produces the Next Generation Hand-Held Targeting System for the USMC and the Multi-Domain User Sensor Architecture targeting system for the US Army.
