The Aimpoint FCS13RE is a Dynamic Universal Reflex Sight (DURS) for use on Multiple Weapon Platforms such as:
84 mm Carl Gustaf
40 mm HV (HK GMG, MK19)
12.7 mm HMG (M2)
The FCS system is a Direct View Optic (DVO) that consists of an eye safe (class 1) 1550 nm Laser Range Finder, a ballistic computer with the capability to store more than 50 different ballistic algorithms, and a very near parallax free optical channel with unlimited eye relief.
The FCS automatically compensates for the ballistic drop of projectiles at measured distances, factoring in variables such as rotational (spin) drift, propellant temperature and terrain angle.
The system will also allow the engagement of moving targets and calculates the point of aim depending on speed of the target dynamically. When the distance is measured the ballistic is calculated and compensated immediately.
The aiming reticule changes position in the optical channel electronically and very quickly. Neither motors nor sensitive moving parts are used within the system. If ammunition type is changed, the ballistic algorithm is entered and utilized automatically, so no new distance measurement is required.
The Aimpoint FCS system can also be programmed for 40 mm HV airburst ammunition. The detonation can easily be moved along the axis of fire with different burst modes – string of pearls, to engage targets in defilade.
Greatly increases first hit probability, drastically reducing the collateral damage
Eliminates targeting errors resulting from user mistakes in estimation of distance and terrain angle
Increases the effective range of engagement
Dramatically reduces training time and the amount of ammunition utilized during training
Increases the confidence of the gunner in engaging targets
Complete dawn to dusk capabilities
