Military and Law Enforcement
The EOTech Holographic Weapons Sight is actively in use with military forces worldwide, including many special operations forces, like USSOCOM, where it is standard for close quarter combat. Military units like the Stryker Brigade, 10th Mountain and 3rd Infantry have chosen the holographic weapon sight as their optic of choice. The EOTech Military HWS is battle proven to withstand the abuse that any harsh environment, high powered weapon platform, or military mission can bring.
The EOTech sights that have been designed for Law Enforcement situations. The HWS has been standardized by the DEA, ATF and FBI SWAT. The HWS (Holographic Weapon Sight) is fast becoming the worlds leading choice for close quarter battle environments. The HWS employs a true Heads-Up Display that eliminates blind spots, constricted vision or tunnel vision associated with tubed sights. It has been proven to stand up to multiple threats in any given situation.
Holographic Weapons Sight Features
The Holographic Weapons Sight (HWS) was designed using state-of-the-art digital electronics. There are twenty brightness levels that ensure you proper brightness control in either low light or very bright sunlight. An on-board microprocessor provides automatic battery check indicator, up/down brightness scrolling and programmable auto shutdown features. All electronics are fully encapsulated in shock absorbing resin compound.
The holographic patterns have been designed to be instantly visible in any light, instinctive to center regardless of shooting angle, and to remain in view while sweeping the engagement zone. Reticles are designed as large, see-through patterns to achieve lightning quick reticle to target acquisition without covering or obscuring the point of aim.
True Heads Up Display
The Holographic Weapons Sight employs a true Heads-Up Display that eliminates blind spots, constricted vision, or the tunnel vision associated with tube sights. All user controls are flush to the HWS's streamline housing with no protruding knobs, battery compartments or mounting rings blocking vision at the target area. True, 2 eyes open shooting is realized. Instant threat identification is achieved by maximizing the operator's peripheral vision and ultimately gaining greater control of the engagement zone.
The Magic of Holography
In holography, all the information required to reconstruct the reticle image is recorded everywhere in the Heads-Up display window. If the window is obstructed by mud, snow, rain, etc., the HWS remains fully operational , with point of aim/impact being maintained. Even in such extreme cases where the laminated window is shattered, the HWS is fully functional! As long as the operator can see through any portion of the window, the entire reticle pattern is visible on target...the operator can still engage with confidence.
