Australia Selects Raytheon ELCAN Weapon Sight for Land Forces

  • Advanced optical sight offers both long-range targeting and short-range aiming

Australia's Department of Defence has selected Raytheon's ELCAN Optical Technologies division to supply the ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4x dual role weapon sight. The $54 million contract award followed an open competition.

The ELCAN Specter® dual field-of-view (1X and 4X) sight will replace the ADF's standard 1.5X magnified sight on the new Enhanced F88 rifle in the Land 125 Phase 3C program. The dual magnification provides both long-range targeting and short-range rapid aiming in a single package.

"Our Specter DR 1-4x sight will significantly enhance the soldiers' ability to observe and effectively engage targets," said Cameron Perry, vice president Sales, Marketing and Business Development at Raytheon ELCAN. "We look forward to delivering this critical capability to Australia's land forces."

As part of the contract, Raytheon ELCAN will begin deliveries later this year.
