Phase I Amount
B.E. Meyers & Company proposes to deliver the Phase I requirements of the AVPAS by utilizing its research and development resources to examine new technologies, architectures, and designs. These efforts will result in providing to the government the market research, proof-of-concept analysis, and a proposed design for an AVPAS prototype. The prototype design will be founded on incremental testing and sub-integration of the architectures selected, thereby promoting certainty of schedule and minimal developmental risk.

Phase II year
Phase II Amount
In an effort to maintain the advantage of today’s SOF operators, a new weapon mounted laser pointer and illuminator system is proposed. To increase survivability and lethality of the operator, the system will minimize size and weight while improving performance, reliability and operability. The development of a new laser based variable divergence illuminator will provide ideal beam clarity over an extended zoom range. The system will include operator controls that serve to both deliver appropriate irradiance to the target area at ranges greater than 900 meters, and to also decrease response times to increase lethality in near and mid-range engagements. The system will survive all applicable warfare environments, such as immersion, recoil, and thermal shock, while maintaining zero position stability and system functionality. The system will be tested to MIL-STD-810H and compliant with all requirements set forth in the Phase II Statement Of Objectives (SOO) for the Squad Aiming Laser – Ultra High Power (SAL-UHP).
