The Close Quarter Battlesight (CQB) was developed from the Shield Mini Sight in order to provide a completely enclosed reflex sight capable of operating under the harshest military environmental conditions. The interface was specially designed by Shield to allow the UK MOD to mount the CQB on a suite of equipment supplied within the Future Integrated Soldier Technology (FIST) programme, including the Elcan LDS and Qioptiq FIST Thermal Sight. The CQB is smaller and lighter than the competition, with no coloured lens coating, which minimizes visible signature, a key factor for both military and sporting users. Shield has supplied over 40,000 CQB’s to the British Army since starting production in 2010. Please note that the Shield CQB is therefore subject to UK Export Control. The CQB was awarded ‘Best Target Acquisition Product for the Soldier’ at Soldier Technology 2013.
