The Concept of Rapid Aiming Feature™ Reticles
2021 Nov 29th
The Rapid Aiming Feature™ was developed by Armament Technology Incorporated (ATI) in 2005. Armament Technology reticle designs have been incorporated into numerous combat optical sight and sniper rifle sight models deployed by military forces and commercial customers worldwide.
The purpose of the Rapid Aiming Feature™ is to offer a prominent etched aiming feature that stands out against the target at short rages and uses a known ergo-psychological effect to naturally draw the user’s eye to the center of the field of view. It is also designed to subtend out of the way at longer range to accommodate ballistic hold-over and windage offset.
Because the arms of the Rapid Aiming Feature™ occupy the diagonal quadrants of the field of view, they are thick and prominent enough to stand out against a close-by target, yet they do not disrupt the ballistic or wind hold-offs in the reticle nor do they obscure the target whatsoever at long range. The resultant effect is that the user can enjoy the benefits of a fast and prominent aiming feature while at the same time have a fine and graduated sighting reference in the center for very precise aiming when necessary.
