Chantilly, VA –Aimpoint, the originator and leading manufacturer of electronic red dot sighting technology, has secured a new contract with the U.S. Military for supply of 163,000 rifle sights. The Aimpoint sight was chosen following an extensive evaluation and competitive trial of available sighting technologies by the Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC).

“We are honoured that the most elite military force in the world has once again chosen to utilize Aimpoint sights” announced Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint. “Since 1997 the company has proven itself to be a reliable and trusted supplier to the U.S. Military” said Ljungfelt. ”We listen carefully to the needs of our military customers, and incorporate these requirements directly into the design and manufacture of our products”.

Over 500,000 Aimpoint sights are currently in use by U.S. Forces. Aimpoint sights are universally known for their fast target acquisition, rugged design and ability to function under extreme conditions.
