Kerala firm develops sight device for weaponsMarch 3rd, 2009 - 6:32 pm ICT by IANS
Thiruvananthapuram, March 3 (IANS) Light Logics Holography and Optics Ltd, a Technopark-based company, Tuesday said it has developed a professional grade holographic weapon sight device that will facilitate sharp and easy aiming of weapons.
Light Logics chief executive Ajith Kumar said the production of professional grade holographic weapon sight elements was “a great step forward and a scientific development of national importance”.
“Usually weapons are aimed with the help of a few reference points on it and it is brought in line with the target and fired,” he said.
Holographic sights carry a set of critical light diffracting elements that create a virtual spot which will be used to aim the targets. It has wider field of view and hence it is easy to align the weapon, even if the target is moving, the company said in a statement.
Light Logics is a techno-intensive company with core capabilities in holographic imaging and photonics.
Light Logics has recently won the ISBA (Indian Science Technology and Entrepreneurs Parks and Business Incubators Association) award for the most innovative engineering and production company of 2008.
