25 Feb 16. Steiner Brings New LRF Technology to the Battlefield. Steiner has developed the M830r Laser Rangefinder 1535nm that introduces new technology to the battlefield.
The M830r LRF 1535nm provides 8x magnification and fast ranging accuracy from 25 to 6,000 meters. The IR beam emitted from the rangefinder is a wavelength (1535nm) that cannot be seen by night vision goggles, making detection by the enemy nearly impossible. This compact LRF is ideal for troops who travel light. It’s the perfect combination of a premium Steiner binocular, powerful Class I, eye-safe laser for determining range, plus a SUMR reticle for targeting redundancy. A Scan Mode is available to handle moving targets.
New Prism Sights for Close and Medium-Range Engagement
Close- and medium-range engagements require lightweight, quick-to-point optics. The new M536 and M332 prism sights provide a fast, clear aiming point in all light conditions. The new M536 features an oversized 36mm objective lens for optimal light gathering and brighter images. The fixed 5x magnification and illuminated ballistic reticle ensure more rounds on target with accuracy out to 700 meters.
The M332 offers fixed 3x magnification and a slightly smaller footprint with its 32mm objective. It’s a perfect match for carbine and patrol rifles.
Both offer 10 illumination settings that make target acquisition easy in any light as well as instant transition from close-quarter combat to medium-range targets.
Other features include:
• Fully adjustable windage and elevation with up to 70 MOA of elevation
• Picatinny base on the top for mounting auxiliary sights
• Quick detach mount that adapts to any MIL-STD 1913 rail
• Waterproof and submersible to 10 meters
• Tested to 1,000 Gs for shock and recoil resistance
• Powered by one CR2032 battery
New DBAL-A4 Offer Stealth and Versatility
New from the Steiner eOptics Division is the DBAL-A4, a laser-aiming device that takes the battle tested capability of the DBAL-A3 to a whole new level.
The DBAL-A4 combines four illuminators into one rugged, battle-ready unit that allow users to target and observe in both the visible and invisible spectrums. They include: visible green laser, IR laser, IR illuminator and white light.
A single operational-mode switch provides exceptional control during mission operations, and low-profile windage and elevation adjusters maintain zero in the roughest conditions. Powered by three CR123 batteries, a pressure pad switch turns the aiming lasers and illuminators on or off, while a second pad can be used to instantly transition from infrared to visible operations typically used during forced entry operations.
AN/PVS-21 Low Profile Night Vision Goggle
Combines Sensor Integration with See-Through Technology
The AN/PVS-21 Low Profile Night Vision Goggle has a unique low-profile design that is 3-4 inches more compact than conventional night vision goggles, offering a greater range of applications, particularly aggressive special ops missions in extreme environments.
Overall features include:
• See-through optics that instantly transition to bright light
• Enhanced situational awareness through sensor integration
• Large, un-intensified field-of-view for improved depth perception and CQB capability
• Eliminates vertigo and tunnel vision associated with conventional systems
• Reduced center of gravity for greater comfort and extended wear
• Ideal for high-speed vehicle operation, parachute jumps and aggressive use over rough terrain
