Required

Enclosure

Decreases weight from 1.219 to 0.396, increases durability?

  • Chemical engineering
    • Plastics

Lenses

Decreases weight, increases upper zoom extreme, increases light gain, decreases size of vignetted areas, increases durability

  • Optical engineering
    • Geometric optics

Optional

Variable Zoom

Decreases lower zoom extreme

  • Mechanical engineering
    • Mechanics

Waterproofing

No idea yet, just throwing stuff out there

  • Chemical engineering
    • Elastomers

Range Finding

This would present as a LED readout unless it is digital

  • Optical engineering
    • Lasers

Direction Finding

This would present as a compass rose overlay

  • Electrical engineering
    • Magnetism

Digital

Digitizing the image and displaying it allows for manipulation and overlays

  • Electrical engineering
    • Optoelectronics

Image Stabilization

No idea yet, just throwing stuff out there

  • Software engineering
    • Image processing

Night Vision

Increases limits of spectrum, decreases lowest intensity

  • Optical engineering
    • Photodetectors

Range Finding

Digital version includes grid overlay with scale

  • Software engineering
    • LIDAR
