The Ultimate Shotgun Training Tool; the Universal Shotgun Trainer LT-120 From LaserLyte®

 

Cottonwood, AZ - LaserLyte®, innovators in firearms laser technologies, has released their first shotgun laser system, the LT-120 Universal Shotgun Trainer laser system. Now shotgunners, from beginners to seasoned pros, can perfect their swing and follow-through on targets, through the innovative LaserLyte® concentric laser system. The LaserLyte® LT-120 fits all 12 and 20 gauge semi-auto, pump, over-under and side-by-side shotguns. Shotgun training for home defense, target shooting or wing shooting can be learned and perfected in the comfort of one’s own home.

The LaserLyte® LT-120 fits in the primary barrel’s muzzle-end and produces a sound-activated laser when the user pulls the trigger for each barrel (Example: 2 trigger pull clicks results in 2 activations). The LT-120 projects a ring of 8 red laser dots with one red laser dot in the center as the aiming laser. The circle grows at one-inch per yard, about the same configuration as the shotgun would when aimed at a moving target. The red laser circular pattern gives the user the advantage of a wide field-of-view while using both eyes for aiming. The LaserLyte® LT-120 allows shotgun shooters to build muscle reflex skills such as swing, follow-through and sight pattern identification.

The LaserLyte® LT-120 Universal Shotgun Trainer saves shotgunners time and money and readies them for higher scores and more hits on the field. For more information, visit www.laserlyte.com.

LaserMax Delivers Thermal Laser Prototype to U.S. Navy

 

Rochester, NY – LaserMax® today announced delivery of a Thermal Collimated Aiming Device (TCAD) prototype to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, as part of a development contract (Solicitation N0016410RJQ60) with the U.S. Navy for proprietary out-of-band laser technology. Tested to withstand both harsh environmental conditions and the rigors of battle, LaserMax’s TCAD utilizes a “first of its kind” application of Quantum Cascade Laser technology that will enable armed forces to effectively target enemy combatants without sacrificing covert positioning. Designed to complement existing military equipment inventory, the TCAD prototype interfaces with Long Wave Thermal Imagers currently issued to U.S. Special Operations units, offering a distinct tactical advantage expected to prevent American casualties.

In use since the early 1970′s, near infrared spectrum technology became a multi-billion dollar industry that formerly allowed U.S. soldiers to “own the night.” Unfortunately, the gradual availability of this equipment by the enemy has progressively compromised this advantage, putting troops at risk. Adoption of long-wave thermal laser technology by the U.S. military represents a game-changing strategy that will prevent loss of life and, by utilizing existing inventory, is anticipated to save millions in tax-payer dollars. The list of compatible imagers includes Excellus PSQ20, Optics1 COTI, Raytheon PAS-13 and L3 CNVD-T. Having met the package requirements for SWaP (Size, Weight and Performance), TCAD units were then thoroughly tested by the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Crane Division (NSWC Crane), which confirmed that the technology has met the requirements with an assortment of thermal imagers. TCAD units will now undergo final field testing in order to refine specifications for the development of production units.

LaserMax successfully demonstrated a variation of this technology specifically designed for the U.S. Army, the Carbine Thermal Aiming Laser (CTAL), during this year’s Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE), Spiral H. Having been again selected for participation in next year’s AEWE exercise, Spiral I, the focus will be to optimize size and weight while improving performance. For more information on LaserMax thermal laser technology, visitdefense.lasermax.com.

Now in its 24th year, LaserMax is a market leading producer of premium laser systems. Specializing in the design and manufacture of rugged and innovative firearm sighting solutions for military, law enforcement and commercial markets worldwide, the company also delivers premium laser products and optical systems for the semiconductor, aerospace, biomedical and telecommunications industries. Since the company’s first laser inventions in 1989, LaserMax has grown to become a global leader in laser systems, developing significant intellectual property and being awarded several primary patents in laser technology. LaserMax is an ISO 9001:2008 certified and WOSB 8(m) certified Women-Owned Small Business. All LaserMax products are designed and manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility in Rochester, NY, USA.

Burris Introduces AR-DBAL Eye-Safe Dual Beam Aiming Laser

 

GREELEY, CO – Burris introduces the new Eye-Safe AR-DBAL Dual Beam Aiming Laser.

Designed with the same cutting-edge technology as high-powered military devices, these NEW ‘Eye-Safe’ models are powered with a Class I, infrared laser pointer for use with night vision equipment plus a Class IIIa visible red or green laser (depending on model). These products are suitable for Law Enforcement agencies that engage in CQB work and require lasers that will not harm the public, for personal defense or nighttime hunting.

The AR-DBAL is built to perform under the most rigorous conditions and survive the harshest environments; the AR-DBAL allows users to seamlessly transition from day light maneuvers to low light operations with ease.

The AR-DBAL infrared model includes an adjustable focus infrared laser that allows the operator to adjust the size of the laser beam depending on mission requirements. When focused, the laser provides a continuous beam along the weapon’s line of fire for precise aiming. When defocused, the beam spreads to provide improved illumination and situational awareness.

The laser is manufactured to meet MIL-STD-810G requirements for reliability under the most adverse environmental conditions from desert heat to arctic cold. Waterproof to 66 feet and precision machined from hard-anodized aircraft grade aluminum, these cutting-edge devices are virtually indestructible.
