To prepare for the Soldier Information Requirements (SIREQ) project field experiment (Examination of the Effects of Night Vision Devices on Urban Off-Bore Target Detection and Engagement) the proposed sighting systems were trialled to determine a standardized laser boresighting and zeroing procedure. The resulting “master” offset targets provided a quick and efficient way to ensure standardization with respect to boresighting and zeroing the C7A1 Rifle for experiment participants. The offset sheets provide the appropriate targeting information for use with the AN/PEM-1 Laser Borelight System. Representative “master” offset targets for each of the weapon/sight combinations are found in Appendix 1. The targets are representative in that they are scaled reproductions of the actual offset targets derived from the study. Should any or all weapon sights/aiming aids be chosen and procured for the Canadian Forces, it is recommended that definitive offset targets be produced using bench test weapons and ammunition. The tests should also be conducted under pristine conditions (no wind, no shooter error, no qualitative determination of MPI, etc.).
