Safran company Optics 1’s Integrated Compact Ultralight Gun-mounted Rangefinder (I-CUGR) has been selected by the US Marine Corps (USMC) for its Sniper Range Finder (SRF) programme, the company announced on 31 August.
The I-CUGR is a small, lightweight and rugged weapon-mounted laser rangefinder with integrated illumination and aiming lasers. It is designed to give the user the capability to quickly range targets without taking their hand off the rifle, providing more accurate first round hits.
The initial order is for 315 units with deliveries starting this year.
