E0016 – Scout Sniper Observation Telescope (SSOT)

The SSOT is a lightweight, variable power, tripod mounted telescope that will replace the out-dated M49 Sniper 20x power fixed telescope.

The SSOT is used for detecting, recognizing, observing, identifying, and ranging targets during daylight with increased identification certainty. The SSOT interfaces with the SONOD. The intent of the SSOT is to provide the Marine Scout Sniper Team with enhanced ability to clearly, easily, and quickly engage targets out to the maximum effective range of the individual weapons, during the day and when used in conjunction with the SONOD in night and low light conditions.
