TRIGR provides the soldier with infrared optics, laser rangefinder, digital compass, and GPS capability for geo-location, day and night. TRIGR is housed in a ruggedized package and is balanced for easy handling and tripod mounting. User friendly controls are mounted atop the unit in a natural position for the soldier’s fingertips, even when protective gear is worn.
