Abstract : An evaluation of three sighting systems for use with the helicopter mounted SS-11/UH-1B weapons subsystem is presented. The sighting systems evaluated are a Foreign Sight, a Head Mounted Sight and a Gimbal Mounted Sight. The latter two sights were developed under contract to Frankford Arsenal. The evaluation demonstrates that the Gimbal Mounted Sight is the most desirable of the three sighting systems considered. The future use of the Gimbal Mounted Sight as a possible replacement for the XM55, which is now used with the SS-11 system, must await the outcome of further test firings. (Author)
