It is important to practice using the M25 Stabilized Binocular prior to
bringing it on a mission. The operator must be convinced the M25 Stabilized
Binocular is the right tool for the mission as well as know how and when to
use it. The M25 Stabilized Binocular provides a combination of increased
standoff ranges, better target identification, and the ability to be used on
some moving platforms, it does however, weigh more than a standard
binocular. Perform the following exercises to become familiar with the
advantages of the M25 Stabilized Binocular and to learn what it can do.
Learn the Advantages of High Power Combined with Stabilization
Take the M25 Stabilized Binocular outdoors and prepare it as
instructed in work package pages 0005 00-1 through 0006 00-6.
Locate a target with some fine detail. A good target, for example
purposes, is a vehicle license plate. Select a target at a distance so that
when viewed in the unstabilized mode, it is very difficult to read the
letters or numbers (the blurring due to hand jitter should be obvious).
