"Intelligent" Combat Sight (ICS) from Steiner GREELEY, CO - Steiner's new "Intelligent" Combat Sight (ICS) integrates a laser rangefinder and a ballistic calculator into a rugged and compact tactical weapons sight. The ICS, a true electro-optical aiming device, provides trajectory compensation by automatically calculating the point of aim based on ammunition ballistics, measured distance and angle to the target out to 800 meters.

"The precision of the 6x40mm ICS greatly increases accuracy and first round hit probability for improved battlefield effectiveness for infantry soldiers and tactical operators using small caliber weapons," says Tom Frane, VP of Sales, Marketing and Business Development. "Just feed the ICS your cartridge's ballistic info and the scope's computer and inclinometer instantly calculate perfect hold-over at your exact distance and gives you a bright red dot in seconds - all at the push of a button."

Despite its sophisticated technology, the ICS is a ruggedized, simple to operate combat optic that requires minimal training. While the magnification is optimized for the 7.62X51mm Battle Rifle, the ICS's internal ballistic calculator is easily configurable for specific 5.56mm, 300 Blackout and .300 WinMag cartridges.

The 6x40mm ICS is fully adjustable for windage and 120 MOA of elevation, and the illuminated reticle adjusts from dim to bright for daylight conditions. A Picatinny base on top of the ICS allows for the addition of a CQB sight, and a back-up iron sight on the right side provides an auxiliary sighting option. The sight is powered by one CR123A battery and the Class I Eye Safe laser and is waterproof up to 1 ATM - 10 m.

Ah, finally they've got the Eliminator III packaged for the mil/LE/tactical application.

I was sort of won over by the Eliminator after being very skeptical, so I like the concept of this sight.

It is interesting how everyone is converging on 6x being a good general purpose magnification for a precision carbine.

Because really... it is. Smile

I think you're right on with this, Ilya. The fact this is a Steiner optic, and due to Steiner's relationship with Burris, I bet this optic does have the exact same electronic components as used in the Eliminator III. I used the Eliminator briefly and did like it, so I'm a little intrigued by this sight as well.

I agree with you, Ted.  6x is a very good magnification for shooting man size targets out to a few hundred yards.  
It is not a surprise that Steiner is basing their ICS around a 6x power scope and Leupold's LCO is 6x as well.

Leupold is a decidedly unconventional solution, but it is small and lightweight.  Steiner's ICS is definitely going to be bigger and heavier, but it integrates a LRF, which is a different ballgame altogether.
