SIO manufactures and supplies Boresighting equipment to the U.S. Army, U.S. Marines, Original Equipment Manufacturers and Customer end users around the world.
Boresighting is the procedure that makes sure that the weapons and sighting devices are all operating on the same lines of sight, so that, when the ammunition is fired, it will have the best possible chance of hitting the target that is being sighted. As a procedure that establishes a relationship between the lines of sight of the sighting equipment and the lines of sight of the weapons at a given range, boresighting establishes the starting point from which all mechanical adjustments are made.
Boresight devices allow the crew to boresight weapon systems and the calibration devices and check the accuracy of the fire control system. These devices improve the accuracy of various weapon systems, as well as save ammunition, range time, and training time.
