Leupold速 and Aimpoint速 Selected by NSWC Crane to Fill $52.5M Enhanced Combat Optical Sight- Optimized Contracts

BEAVERTON, Ore. - Leupold & Stevens and Aimpoint速 are pleased to announce they have been awarded five-year contracts by the U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division for Enhanced Combat Optical Sight - Optimized (ECOS-O) systems.

Leupold & Stevens' $42.8 million contract calls for the longtime supplier of military optics to provide Mark 6速 3-18x44mm riflescopes as the base for the next generation of integrated optical aiming systems for modern small arms. The Oregon-based manufacturer will also provide Mark 6 Integrated Mounting Systems (IMS速).

"This contract award reflects Leupold & Stevens' tremendous commitment to bringing cutting-edge technology to the U.S. military," said Kevin Trepa, Leupold & Stevens' vice president of global sales and business development. "Smaller, lighter, faster-and with more power-is now a reality."

The ECOS-O project integrates the Leupold速 Mark 6速 3-18x44mm riflescope with the CQB-proven Aimpoint Micro T-1. With an overall length of less than 12 inches and weighing just 34.2 ounces, the ECOS-O system delivers an incredible field of view and rapid target acquisition at an unmatched length and weight. Adjustable diopter and variable 6X power magnification allows the operator to adapt the optic to any condition encountered in the field.

Aimpoint's $8.7 million contract for T-1 micro red dot sights and mounting brackets will go to the Navy Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Ind., where Crane armorers will integrate the system and deliver them to warfighters in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

Built in Leupold's Beaverton, Ore, facility, the Mark 6 3-18x44mm riflescope is the latest in the company's proud military history. Leupold is a leading supplier of long-range optics to the U.S. military and has provided key riflescopes and spotting scopes for all branches since the 1980s.

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., the preeminent American-owned optics company, employs hundreds of people in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Beaverton, Ore. Family owned and privately operated, Leupold offers products that are sold worldwide to hunters, competitive shooters, American military warfighters, law enforcement personnel and wildlife observers. The product line includes rifle, handgun and spotting scopes; binoculars; rangefinders; trail cameras; mounting systems; and optical tools and accessories.
