USE THIS ONEThe United States Marine Corps (USMC) selected Kollsman’s solution for a multispectral, clip-on weapon night sight, allowing Marines to engage in day and night operations at extreme stand-off distances. The selection is part of Phase II of the Integrated Clip-on Advanced Targeting Sight (ICATS) program and will require the company to design, build and test two sophisticated ICATS prototypes for the USMC over the next year. Kollsman is a subsidiary of Elbit Systems of America.

Elbit Systems of America’s ICATS solution is optimised for USMC scout snipers and reconnaissance Marines, so they may acquire targets and engage at extended ranges. The solution clips onto the Marine’s weapon and provides critical information to the user, even in low-light or inclement weather. The ICATS is configured to provide simultaneous imaging across extended ranges, without adding considerable weight to the Marine’s weapon.

“This selection by the US Marine Corps shows the strong partnership we have with the Marines, as well as our expertise creating technology that benefits warfighters in the field,” said Ridge Sower, vice president of Ground Combat and Precision Targeting at Elbit Systems of America. “With our ICATS solution, Marines can successfully complete their missions, no matter the conditions, while remaining as safe as possible.”
