Aimpoint sighting system

Aimpoint AB is a supplier of electro-optical sighting systems including passive red dot collimator sight, laser device, fire control systems and mounts.

Aimpoint supplies optical devices for civilian, police and military applications. The company strengthened its position as market leader when it was awarded the first multi-year contract ever for red dot sights by the US Army in 1997. Since then, Aimpoint has continued to deliver large quantities of sights to the US Army, French Army, US Airforce, US SOCOM, Swedish Army, Norwegian Army, Dutch Army, Danish Army and Italian Army.

Through this, the company has proven its capability to manufacture and supply large quantities of first class equipment. The Aimpoint sight is also currently in use with Special Forces all over the world and regarded as the standard optical sight in most NATO countries. Aimpoint's manufacturing facility in Sweden is certified according to the new standard SS-EN ISO 9001:2008.

Fire control system

The Aimpoint® FCS12 is a fire control system for use with weapons such as the CarlGustav and Panzerfaust. The FCS12 system consists of an eye safe 1550nm laser range finder, a ballistic computer with the capability to store up to 50 different ballistic
algorithms, and a parallax free optical channel with unlimited eye relief.

The FCS12 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 FCS system comes with a remote control unit placed on the front grip, and which communicates with the sight via a wireless link.

Optical sights for infantry soldiers

The Aimpoint® CompM4 series of sights have lately been chosen as the standard infantry soldier sight in many NATO countries. These optics are extremely rugged and operate continuously for up to eight years using a single AA battery. The Aimpoint CompM4 is the latest version of the US Army's M68CCO (Close-Combat Optic), continuing a legacy that Aimpoint has maintained since 1997.

Long-life optical sights

The Aimpoint® Micro series of sights is small enough to be used in applications where size and weight have limited the applicability of red dot sights in the past. The Micro T-1 is compatible with all generations of night vision devices and can operate for over 50,000 hours on one single battery.

Patrol rifle optic (PRO)

The Aimpoint® Patrol Rifle Optic™ (PRO), is a sight that comes in a complete 'ready to go' kit and at a very affordable price. It offers three years of continuous use on one single battery, it is NVD compatible and comes with a QR mount including spacer and flip-up covers; the rear flip-up being transparent.

Red dot sights

The Aimpoint® CompM3 and Aimpoint CompML3 are red dot sights for use with small arms. The CompM3 is night vision equipment compatible while the CompML3 is not, but in all other aspects, these products are exactly the same. These sights can be bought in two different dot sizes, two or four minutes of angle (MOA) and can operate for over 50,000 hours on one single DL1/3N battery.

Red dot sight for heavy machine guns

The Aimpoint® MPS3 red dot sight is specially designed for medium and heavy calibre weaponry mounted on moving platforms.

Magnifying module for sights

Aimpoint also provides a wide range of accessories. The 3XMag is a magnifying module designed to be compatible with all Aimpoint sights. In addition to the magnifying attachment, Aimpoint has also developed a patented new mount called Aimpoint TwistMount. This allows the operator to switch from semi-sniping to close-quarter battle in a split second.

LPI - infrared laser pointer

The Aimpoint® LPI, IR laser aiming device is an active aiming device or target designator for military and LE applications in darkness or poor light conditions. The Aimpoint LPI is a complement to the passive aiming systems from Aimpoint.

CEU - concealed engagement unit

The Aimpoint® CEU (concealed engagement unit) gives the operator the ability to observe and/or engage a threat from a concealed or covered position.

System-of-Systems™ approach

Aimpoint is a supplier of sophisticated modular sighting systems, offering a choice of modular accessories that can be used together with Aimpoint sights in order to enhance an operator's capabilities.

In our System-of-Systems solution, the versatile TwistMount enables accessories such as the Aimpoint 3XMag and the Aimpoint CEU to be rapidly fixed behind Aimpoint sights. NVDs of all generations can also be added as part of this modular system.
