Steiner’s new “Intelligent” Combat Sight (ICS) integrates a laser rangefinder and a ballistic calculator into a rugged and compact tactical weapons sight. It combines a laser range finder with a ballistics calculator in a compact optic. It is a fixed power 6x40mm optic. As expected of Steiner it is water proof, fog prof, and shock proof up to 750G. The ICS, a true electro-optical aiming device, provides trajectory compensation by automatically calculating the point of aim based on ammunition ballistics, measured distance and angle to the target out to 800 meters.
Despite its sophisticated technology, the ICS is a ruggedized, simple to operate combat optic that requires minimal training. While the magnification is optimized for the 7.62X51mm Battle Rifle, the ICS’s internal ballistic calculator is easily configurable for specific 5.56mm, 300 Blackout and .300 Win Mag cartridges.
The 6x40mm ICS is fully adjustable for windage and 120 MOA of elevation, and the illuminated reticle adjusts from dim to bright for daylight conditions. A Picatinny base on top of the ICS allows for the addition of a CQB sight, and a back-up iron sight on the right side provides an auxiliary sighting option. The sight is powered by one CR123A battery and the Class I Eye Safe laser and is waterproof up to 1 ATM – 10 m. As a true electro-optical aiming device, it combines combat-optimized technology, operating simplicity in the field, and the targeting effectiveness to give small-caliber weapons oversized clout.
