The typical configuration is with both the monocular night vision system and the EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sight mounted in tandem on the weapon's receiver. Operators can also witness the holographic reticle with head/helmet mounted monocular night vision image intensifier systems, even on a partial cheekweld on the weapon's stock. This allows the operator added flexibility and greater versatility when deploying with night vision systems in the ever changing battlefield environments.

Wider field of view: At a distance of 100 yards and a 2° eye relief, the EOTech Red Dot Sights provide a 35 yard horizontal field of view and 22.5 yards vertically. This equates to an area of roughly 790 square yards. In addition, the field of view advantages of the EOTech HWS are even greater when night vision applications arise and the operator must acquire his target with only his dominant eye. Above are non-altered photographs of both the EOTech and Aimpoint viewed through a night vision device.
The HOLOgraphic Advantage: 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 of EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sights are designed as large, see-through patterns to achieve lightning quick reticle to target acquisition without covering or obscuring the point of aim. If the window is obstructed by mud, snow, rain, etc., the Holographic Weapon Sight HWS remains fully operational, with point of aim/impact being maintained. Even in such extreme cases where the laminated window is shattered, the Holographic Weapon 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...the operator can still engage with confidence.
Heads Up, Full View: The Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) employs a true Heads-Up Display that eliminates blind spots, constricted vision, or the tunnel vision associated with tubed sights. All user controls are flush to the Holographic Weapon Sight'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 with EOTech HWS. Instant threat identification is achieved by maximizing the operator's peripheral vision and ultimately gaining greater control of the engagement zone.
We actively supply EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights to the Military Special Forces and Law Enforcement agencies nationwide, and the reviews and feedback from the field have been outstanding! All Eotech sight models sold here are the latest Eotech Rev. F Holographic Weapon Sights! Significant enhancements in the EOTech Holographic Sight electronic circuitry allow the brightness adjustment range to expand by a factor of 20x! Now, the impressive low light capabilities of the EOTECH HWS are combined with a reticle that is 2x brighter at the highest setting. Already recognized as the brightest sight in today's military market, the EOTech Holosight further eliminates any concern of reticle washout in desert or arctic conditions. EOTech's team of engineers has optimized the sight to dramatically improve the optical efficiency of the Eotech HWS. The result is 2x the battery life compared to previous versions. These changes to Eotech scopes are collectively known as Eotech Revision Level F.
