The Marine Corps has selected a small compact laser rangefinder that can be affixed to a rifle, boosting the lethality and capabilities of Marine infantry squads.

After a series of testing and market research from Marine Corps Systems Command, the Corps picked the Integrated – Compact Ultralight Gun-mounted Rangefinder, or I-CUGR, manufactured by Safran Optics 1 Inc.

The small compact rangefinder can range man-sized targets up to 1500 meters, according to the manufacturer. Marines can range targets without taking their hands off their weapons, and the I-CUGR provides digital readings in meters or yards.
