L-3 Developing New Army Sniper Scope Tech

L-3 Communications is helping the Army develop new technology for sniper scopes, the company announced Monday.

The company’s integrated optical systems unit will continue developing the Integrated Ballistic Reticle System into a sniper and a designated marksman role.

To locate targets, the system uses a digital ballistic fire control solution to project an electronic reticle sight.

The company said the system is also designed to lower the amount of manual adjustments.

L-3’s Vertex Aerospace subsidiary recently won a nearly $21.2 million Navy contract to upgrade engines and avionics on the branch’s Sea Ranger helicopter fleet.

The Navy uses those helicopters for training missions.
