One Shot, One Kill: Intelligent Steiner Optics

Steiner_ICS copyFor the soldier on a battlefield, it's a full-time job staying aware and alive, which forces accuracy and precision to take a backseat at times. For every insurgent killed in the Iraq War, the United States military fired about 250,000 rounds. Steiner Optic USA hopes to improve those numbers.

The company's new Intelligent Combat Sight combines a laser rangefinder and ballistic calculator into a 6x40mm rifle scope that is tailored to the round of the rifle to which it is attached. When a target is acquired at a range up to 800 meters (875 yards), the scope automatically calculates the point-of-aim based on the ballistics of the rifle's ammunition, the distance to the target, and the angle from the target to the shooter.

Once the point-of-aim is calculated, a red dot in the scope picture indicates an aiming solution.

The scope itself is built to withstand rugged conditions and is simple to operate. It is currently configured for 7.62 NATO, but can be configured for 5.56, .300 Blackout and .300 Winchester Magnum.
