Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to continue the development of a low-cost, single use, precision aiming device for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) disrupters and tools. This unique low-cost aiming device will ensure the Navy has tools to improve EOD personnel safety by increasing standoff distance without sacrificing performance. In the Phase I, the aiming device performance was quantified for visibility and accuracy at distances up to 50 feet in daylight conditions. In addition, size, weight, and power were minimized to ensure the device results in mission durations for all temperature environments. In the Phase II, prototype aiming devices will be produced and tested in land and underwater to confirm the performance of the aiming device achieves the metrics deemed critical by the Navy. The results from this activity will serve to refine the aiming device for production and commercialization in the Phase III.
