The EOTech 552 HWS is the most affordable night vision compatible sight and it partners with most night vision devices. The 552 is designed to increase your speed to target even after the sun goes down. The major advantage is extremely rapid reticle-on-target acquisition. Operators can quickly acquire the target and reticle in the same focal plane for fast and accurate shot placement. The sight can be used as a bright open reticle image or a fine dot which is limited only by the acuity of the shooter’s eye. The heads-up display window allows an undistorted and unrestricted view of the target.
Utilizing natural binocular vision is an advantage of this sighting system, as well as additional threat identification through increased operator situational awareness and peripheral vision. The 552 can operate in tandem with Generation I – III+ night vision intensifier tubes. While in the NV mode, the sight is undetectable by night vision equipment. The HWS® can be positioned behind night vision systems without any “bloom” on the target area.
