  1. Insert one 9 volt battery.
  2. Insert YELLOW key to ON position. Firing indicator light will flash 2-3 seconds.


SAT/SAW ALIGNMENT USING THE SAAF
(LongRange Zero 300 meters)

  1. Set up the alignment range.

    * From the firing position the soldier makes SAT/SAAF GROSS adjustments to either 1's or 0's at the 5 meter SAAF

    * The firer moves only his POINT OF AIM - not his body, from the 5 meter to the 25 meter SAAF

    * Always use 3 rounds per adjustments

    DIFFERENT TYPES OF TARGETS

    * SAAF - at a minimum use the SAAF at 5 meters with another type of target at 25 meters

    * MITS KIT - use target setting at target type 3 - use just the SDA and ECU

    * LTIDS

    * Individual soldiers with a green key

    space6.gif 0.05 K* Use three soldiers at the 5 meter point
    space6.gif 0.05 K* Use two soldiers at the 25 meter point
    space6.gif 0.05 K* Use one solder 50 meters plus

  2. Install a Dry Fire Cable on the SAT.

  3. Adjust the laser tube.

  4. Do a Coarse alignment at 5 meters with the SAAF. Consider spending time at the 5 meter gross adjustment phase. It could save you a lot of time later.

    (Although "the Book" says getting the numbers 3 or below is satisfactory, experience has shown that if the gunner has a good stroke and you can get all four Os here with three rounds, you will spend much less time "fine-tuning" the laser at the 25m or 50m + ranges.)

  5. Shift your point of aim to the 25 meters point and zero the SAT. You are zeroed when the SAAF display reads I or O (even though "the Book" says 3 or less, this will allow you to quickly zero at a range of 300 meters or more.)

  6. Send a soldier with a Torso on only (no halo) and a green key at a range of 300 meters.

  7. USE A SUPPORTED FIRING POSITION FOR STABILIZATION.

    a. If you are using a soldier at 300m, aim center mass of the soldier and fire. If no KILL, move the aiming point around until you KILL, and adjust the SAT as needed.

    b. If your point of aim was the target's outer potion of his left shoulder (meaning the laser splash "hit" hm in the chest and the front sight blade was the target's outer left shoulder), you would then make SAT adjustments moving the splash to the right and up (moving the splash to the point of aim). NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

  8. After a KILL, move the Laser Tube adjuster up two clicks at a time until you have a miss (keep count of how many clicks up).

  9. After you have a miss, move the Laser Tube adjuster back down to your start point. Keep going down until you have a miss (keep count of the total number of clicks). Divide the total number by 2 (Example: 10 divided by 2=5), and move the Laser Tube adjuster back up that amount.

  10. Aim center mass of the soldier and fire. You should have a KILL.

  11. After a KILL, move the Laser Tube adjuster right 2 clicks at a time until you have a miss (keep count of how many clicks right).

  12. After you have a miss, move the Laser Tube adjuster back to your start point. Keep going left until you have a miss (keep count of the total number of clicks). Divide the total number by 2 (Example: 12 divided by 2=6), and move the Laser Tube adjuster back to the right that amount.

  13. Aim center mass of the soldier and fire. You should have a KILL. You are now zeroed.
