The main difference between a marksman and a normal sniper is that a marksman is usually considered an organic part of a team of soldiers, whereas regular snipers tend to work alone or with other snipers. In the military, marksmen are sometimes attached to an infantry squad where they take accurate long-range shots at valuable targets as needed, thus extending the reach of the squad. Another term for a marksman is a sharpshooter, which was used in the early 19th Century. It is derived from the German word Scharfschütze... The terms 'marksman' and 'sharpshooter' are often used interchangeably with the term 'sniper' (as often in history) within paramilitary counter-terrorism teams such as SWAT, since only a select few use long-range sniper rifles while the majority are armed with close quarter combat submachine guns... In the United States Army and Marine Corps, the marksmanship of the soldiers are ranked based on their skill: marksman-sharpshooter-expert. Holders of each level wear qualification badges below their ribbons with bars for the weapons they qualify in. In the United States Navy and the United States Coast Guard, full-sized medals are only issued at the expert level. Both services award separate medals for pistol and rifle proficiency. The United States Air Force gives just a ribbon for qualifying at the expert level, although a bronze star can be earned if the wearer qualifies on both of these types of small arms. This sequence comes from organized, competitive shooting where it was first created. Some civilian shooting organizations still use the same terms for classification purposes. However, the terms are not consistent between the military and civilians. Within the United States military, a marksman in the U.S. Army is referred to as "Squad Designated Marksman" (SDM), and a marksman in the Marines is called a "Designated Marksman" (DM)...

The 1/2.8" sensor has excellent spectral sensitivity for both visible and NIR wavelengths and features an automatic IR cut filter, making it a true day/night camera providing clear colour images by day and black and white images at night. The 1/2.8" sensor provides the best balance between light sensitivity and maximum zoom, making it particularly suited for long range surveillance. The Sentry also integrates the latest technology in real-time image processing such as BLC, HLC, DWDR, EIS, ROI, 3D DNR, ABF, Defog/Haze etc. Each of these image enhancements can be automatic or user-defined and calibrated based on the application requirements. Since the camera is native IP, all of these settings can be changed and configured remotely, along with remote PTZ and zoom control. Long Range 39X 8-315mm Zoom Lens with fog filter The PHX comes equipped with a precision engineered 8–315mm telephoto IR-corrected zoom lens offering continuous zoom from a wide 37° angle through to a narrow 1° field of view, or approximately 17m wide at 1km. The 1/2.8" sensor paired with the 315mm lens renders a field-of-view equivalent to a full-frame (35mm) DSLR camera with a 2,000mm lens. Infiniti’s zoom optics are built with the highest quality Japanese fluorite ELD low dispersion glass, and the integrated rapid auto focus allows long range recognition and identification of targets without operator intervention. The lens also incorporates a motorized fog filter that is used with the camera’s monochrome mode and dehaze image processing to see through fog, smoke, smog and haze that render standard optical cameras unusable. Infiniti’s HD Zoom camera is a perfect synergy between precision craftsmanship, state of the art sensor hardware and the latest image processing for unparallelled range and performance. See it All Thermal Infrared Infiniti’s thermal cameras let you see further than any other night vision technology. Thermal cameras, unlike traditional visible cameras, use heat rather than light to see an object. Humans, animals, and vehicles are very hot in contrast to most backgrounds making trespassers hiding in shadows or bushes easy to spot. Thermal images are also unaffected by bright light and have the ability to see through atmospheric obstructions such as smoke, dust, and light fog. This makes it an ideal technology for a number of applications, including but not limited to surveillance and security, search and rescue, fire, marine and land navigation, and wide area situational assessment.

A great news video on US military modernization. Some say it is the worlds largest modernization program in the world. Every Marine is a rifleman, but a Marine sniper is not your average rifleman. Their “one-shot one-kill” mindset is heavily influenced by the precision weapons system they use. The goal of equipping Marine snipers with a superior weapon system brought teams from Marine Corps Systems Command’s Infantry Weapons Systems and Marine Corps Scout Sniper Instructor School to Fort A.P. Hill, Va., for a market research caliber study on a hot, muggy day in July. “As the Marine Corps’ only systems command, it’s essential that we have Marine Corps snipers shooting and Marine Corps acquisition professionals collecting the data,” said Maj. Paul Gillikin, Special Purpose Weapons Team Leader for IWS. “This is a Marine Corps-driven event with Marines behind the guns, but we are still following along with SOCOM and other Joint Service programs. This data will inform our senior acquisition and requirements officials in buying the next rifle system.” The goal of the caliber study was clear: to inform Marine Corps acquisition leaders about future Marine sniper weapon system requirements, while leveraging what is currently available in the marketplace. The sniper weapon system has three primary components—the projectile, the rifle and the optic. “You need to understand the application of the weapon system then procure the system as a system,” said Gillikin. “If we want a weapon system capable of engaging targets at, say 1,500 meters, we need to find the right round—the right caliber—to shoot at that range. Once you find the round that best supports the criteria—the 1,500-meter target engagement—you build the rest of the system around it. Even though we are assessing three calibers in this event, we are actively researching other nomenclatures to inform future system procurement.” Gillikin and his team collected ballistic data on three different caliber projectiles—the 7.62mm NATO, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum—fired by Marine Corps snipers using different rifles at distances ranging from 900 to 1,500 meters to target. For each caliber round, the MCSC team determined the probability of snipers hitting the target at each distance. The six snipers participating in the caliber study routinely hit targets at distances greater than the current standing requirement for Marine Corps sniper rifles. The snipers also had the opportunity to experience other calibers available across the Department of Defense, industry and those used by U.S. coalition partners, said Gunnery Sgt. Daniel Lalota, the staff non-commissioned officer in charge of the Scout Sniper Instructor School at Marine Corps Base Quantico. “The event allowed us to see the capabilities and limitations of different calibers and compare them to our existing program of record,” said Lalota, who also participated in the event as a test sniper. “To be able to equip Marines with a weapon system that neutralizes threats in a higher caliber magnum cartridge would essentially save lives on the battlefield.” When the next sniper rifle system will be acquired and fielded has yet to be determined. Currently, Marines have the M40A6 sniper rifle, which uses the 7.62mm NATO. MCSC began fielding the M40A6—which offers better transportability, concealability and ergonomics than its predecessor—to Marine snipers across the Corps in June. The caliber research is an essential part of the overall acquisition cycle and will inform the Marine Corps’ Combat Development and Integration Command, which writes requirements for new system procurements, when determining Marine sniper weapon system attributes. The ultimate beneficiaries of this research, of course, will be the Marine snipers. “Marine snipers are taking shots way beyond what most infantry guys and riflemen do,” Gillikin said. “That’s why we select our snipers very carefully. It’s not something where you can give a guy a gun and an optic and tell him to go shoot at targets at great distance.” Video Description Credit: Ashley Calingo Video Credits: South Front Team Video Thumbnail Credit: US Military
