Marine South – Trijicon CCAS


Trijicon’s Continuously Computed Aiming Solution is a fixed 6 power optical sight. It increases first round hits and decreases ammo and training requirements. What’s more, the software firing tables loaded into the CCAS take the math out of the equation. You simply aim at the target and the corrected reticle’s chevron shows you where to point the weapon.


It reaches out to a maximum range of 2400m and with its onboard laser rangefinder and other sensors takes into account barometric pressure, angle, temperature and range, calculating everything except for wind. Additionally, the shooter can select weapon and ammo. Weighing in at 72 oz it is really more at home on a crew served weapon but it can be mounted to everything from the M4 carbine up through the M2 HMG. With its 4 CR-123A batteries, expect 10 hours of operation from the CCAS.

    This is pretty insane. Between this and the Linux Rifle featured on Ars, sniping is a whole new world. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013/03/bullseye-from-1000-yards-shooting-the-17000-linux-powered-rifle/

    If I may, I think there’s a very interesting function on display here that may have gone missed. In the lower left corner of the bottom image there appears to be a velocity indicator as well. Potentially: real time lead calculation for moving targets regardless of velocity or angle relative to the shooter. Thats damn powerful if its true…

      Went and checked it out on there site and it does in fact do leads:

      “Range target with black crosshair to produce horizontal holdover bar with aiming points. Use circle to aim at stationary targets. Use chevron to track and aim at moving targets.”

      Absolutely brilliant. Cant wait to see what they do with the tech once it shrinks to a more manageable size.

        Alternatively the arrow could be the programmed wind direction/speed…

    I guess I’m the only one who thinks this is rubbish.

    Are we intending to keep any soldier skills alive or outmode it all with technology?

    I’m on the fence. I’ve had plenty of super-good-idea-fairy technology fail miserably in the field.

        Amazing reply…I really enjoyed that. Made me chuckle.

        To further my argument…who here is serving currently?

        I can’t tell you how many infantry NCOs and junior soldiers who don’t know how to use a compass, don’t know how to zero irons, Don’t know how to dig fighting positions or a myriad of other level 1 tasks.

        Tomaso: The units I’ve served with HAVE dropped training. Granted, maybe I’ve had a run of bad luck since I joined in 2008…who knows. I feel like, this being used as a skill enhancer, it would be great, but I see it being a replacer for slothful.

      Doosh….skills are needed and training is vital…and all are shit if your waiting for your target to get closer,,,,this is just a “better tool” for the skilled soldier. unfortunately “teething issues” just come with the curve.

      i dont see “us” getting to the point we drop training just because the equipment seems to replace it.

    “The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea. They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is clear: To build and maintain those robots.”

    Very cool innovation, but the battery life will need to evolve as well…
