EOTech, a division of L-3, delivers cutting edge technology and products in the fields of holographic sighting systems, tactical lasers, illuminators and thermal imaging equipment. EOTech is dedicated to providing high-quality battle-tested products to law enforcement and commercial markets around the world.
EOTech introduced the first-generation HWS at the 1996 SHOT Show, under the trade name Bushnell-HoloSight®. The HWS was designed to increase target accuracy and speed of target acquisition in sport shooting and hunting applications. It won the Optic of the Year Award from the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence.
In 2000, EOTech introduced the second-generation HWS, with a more compact and modular design. It laid the foundation for product entry into the law enforcement and military markets. The next year, EOTech introduced the military and law enforcement HWS, which received the 2001 Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence Optic of the Year Award.
USSOCOM awarded EOTech a contract in 2005. Special Operations and the Marine Corps chose the HWS as their standard close combat optic. Elite Army units including Stryker Brigade and the 101st Airborne also made the HWS their optic of choice.
EOTech moved to a larger facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2007. That year, the company also obtained ISO 9001:2000 registration.
A period of rapid growth followed. The company continually made new product introductions and increased production capacity in its new facility to match growing demand.
Today, EOTech continues to develop and introduce new products. The company’s mission is to provide global commercial and law enforcement customers with state-of-the-art, high-quality devices and systems.
