Setting New Standards In Electro-Optical Testing

Line of Sight Boresighting

 

The AWBS is an electro-optical boresight tool, used for accurately aligning guns to the sighting system. The AWBS utilizes a video camera to allow a single user to align a weapon to a sight from the safety of the gunner’s post. The AWBS provides an easy to use, accurate, fast and reliable tool for boresighting, yielding a high first round hit probability.

 

The ease of use of the AWBS minimizes the time required to perform boresighting and maximizes the convenience and the frequency of the procedure. It’s rugged design retains the accuracy of the AWBS over a wide range of environmental conditions. The outstanding features, flexibility and versatility of the AWBS make it the perfect solution for boresighting.
