One of the greatest advancements in weapon sights for CQB (close quarter battle) is the holographic sight as sold by EOTech. Similar to the heads-up display used in the F-14 Tomcat and others, the image is parallax free at all distances, and the huge viewing window offers amazing speed with uncompromising use of peripheral vision.
EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sights now deployed with elite Special Forces and SWAT teams worldwide, the EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sight (HWS) delivers vastly improved shooting performance for all operators.
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 EOTech HOLOgraphic Window (Eoteck HWS) remains fully operational, with point of aim/impact being maintained. Even if the laminated window is shattered, the sight is fully functional! As long as the operator can see through any portion of the window, the entire reticle pattern is visible on target and the user may still engage the target with confidence.
The EOTech holographic reticle has been designed to be instantly visible in any lighting condition regardless of shooting angle. The large, 65 MOA ring of Eotech military and law enforcement scopes is the key to lightning quick target acquisition, and the 1 MOA dot may be used for precise aiming at distances up to 500 yards where it only covers 5" of the target.
The HWS has been designed and tested to provide consistent, reliable performance even in the most hostile operating environments. The HWS (EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sights) is submersible, fogproof, shockproof, and withstands extreme temperature variations. Every unit is tested in a recoil simulator generating the recoil of a .454 Casull revolver, as well as various environmental chambers. Additional ruggedness is provided by a 3/16" metal hood, or "roll bar."
The EOTek HWS's 20 brightness settings ensure the reticle can be instantly viewed in all types of lighting environments, cluttered backgrounds and target colors. Reticles can even be seen in full sunlight against white targets!
Some HWS add 10 more settings for night vision use, and may be used in tandem with night vision devices for effective nighttime weapon aiming. The HWS is a passive weapon optic, and emits no signature that can be seen by an enemy, even with Gen III night vision equipment.
Firefights in close quarter environments are won by fast, accurate target acquisition. Locking onto the target fast means you win. The alternative is not an option.
When the situation is critical, so is the performance of your equipment. Fast, accurate target acquisition with EOTech HOLOgraphic scopes can make the difference... and this is exactly what separates the HWS (EOTech Weapon Sights) from any other sighting system (red dot and reflex sights)... the uncompromising combination of speed and accuracy.
The Eotech HWS (EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sights) delivers critical speed gains for the initial weapon presentation, in multiple target situations, and in conditions where either the operator or the threat(s) are moving rapidly. Engaging around physical barriers or in awkward shooting positions with EO Tech weapon Sights are now made with ease while ensuring rapid reticle to target lock-on.
SPEED MEANS SURVIVAL!
