SIG Sauer continues its remarkable ascent into seemingly every product category, especially high-level military and law enforcement equipment. The latest is the SIG ECHO3 Thermal Reflex Sight, a direct view thermal sight that takes advantage of the company’s BDX technology. It delivers the ability to capture images and record video in eight different color palettes.

“The ECHO3 is an ultra-compact, lightweight direct-view thermal sight,” said Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “The innovative direct-view thermal display on the ECHO3 is a massive improvement over traditional eyepiece style thermals which induce eye fatigue and force the shooter to look through the sight. The ECHO3 allows the shooter to sit back and view the thermal display and when targets are identified, the new BDX reticle technology allows for exact aiming solutions in real-time.”
The SIG Electro-Optics ECHO3 is a compact thermal reflex-style sight. It comes as a 1-6X or 2-12X optic, equipped with Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX 2.0). The ECHO3 utilizes nine different onboard SmartBDC ballistic holdover reticles. It also pairs with any KILOBDX rangefinder, according to SIG Sauer.
The ECHO3 features a motion-activated MOTAC display that powers up when it senses motion. It offers more than six hours of continuous runtime. Additionally, it offers video and image recording in eight different color palettes and six brightness settings. The ECHO3 includes a quick disconnect mount, with an easy to adjust zoom lens with throw lever attachment.
