SUSAT & Optical Systems
Primary sighting system for the British Army 5.56 mm calibre weapon systems.
Four times magnification, coupled with an aiming pointer with variable tritium illumination, gives enhanced performance.
SUSAT / Sight Unit Small Arms Trilux
The size and shape of the aiming pointer allows a head sized target to be balanced on the tip at 300m, yet it is prominent enough to be ‘seen’ at close ranges.
Designed as a fixed focus sealed unit, with only one moving part, SUSAT is virtually maintenance free.
User trials have determined that SUSAT increases the limit of night visibility by up to three times, compared with traditional iron sights.
