ATPIAL QUICK REFERENCE
The Advanced Target Pointer Illuminator Aiming Light (ATPIAL) is a multifunction laser device that emits visible or infrared (I R) light for precise weapon aiming and target I area illumination. This guide provides a quick reference of the key features of the ATPIAL. Complete familiarization with the Operator and Field Maintenance Manual prior to using the equipment will ensure safe operation and maximum effectiveness of the ATPIAL. SAFETY SUMMARY The ATPIAL emils bolh visible and invisible laser radiation. Nominal Ocular Hazard Dislances for safe operation (NOHD) are listed in the table below.

Laser Activation. The Activation Button is used to activate the ATPIAL in the mode set by the Mode Selector. For momenlary operation, press and hold Activation Button. For continuous operation, double-tap Activation Button. When installed, the Remote Cable Switch may be used in place of Ihe Activation Button and is operated the same way. The ATPIAL is equipped with a shut-down feature that will automatically off any laser that has been activated for five continuous minutes. To reactivate, press (single-tap) the Activation Button.

Pattern Generators. When individually installed over the Aim Lasers, project one of five different holographic designs over the aiming point of the laser. IA Illuminator. IR Illuminator Focus Knob. The IR illumination beam may be varied from flood to spot by rotating the Illuminator Focus Knob. Diffuser Lens Cap. When installed over the IR Illuminator, spreads the laser energy over an angle of approximately 180 degrees, allowing for illumination of a wider area. Pulse Mode. The IR lIIuminalor pulse mode as follows:
may be programmed
1. With the Mode Selector turned 10 the P (PROGRAM) hold down the Activation Button.
2. Turn the Mode Selector to the desired pulse rate as shown in the table below. The rate will display on the LED Status Indicator (LED will blink same number of times as the pulse rate).
Aim Neutral Density I Opaque Lens Cap. A double-sided lens cap that, when placed over the Aim Lasers, reduces scatter from the IR Aim Laser and completely prevents emission from Visible Aim Laser.
3. Release Activation Button, and pulse rate will be programmed. The set pulse rate will remain until programmed differently.

Safety Screw. A removable Safety Screw installed in the Lockout Position prevents the Mode Selector from being turned to the high power laser settings. This is appropriate for a training environment or when the ATPIAL is being stored. A hex head wrench is used to remove the Safety Screw when, for. tactical reasons, access to the high power laser settings is desired. The Safety Screw Storage Location allows for secure storage of the Safety Screw atter it has been removed from the Lockout Position.
The ATPIAL's IR lasers are more detectable to an enemy using nighl vision devices when used in smoke, fog, and rain. Avoid prolonged activalion of the IR lasers in these conditions. laser Safety Dala

Mount the ATPIAl to the weapon by placing the recoil lug in the desired slot in the Mll-STD-1913 rail. While pushing down and forward on the ATPIAl, finger tighten the Clamping Knob. Take note of the position of the screw slot and using an appropriate tool, turn the Clamping Knob an additional 180 degrees (one half tum) to tighten the ATPIAl to the Mll-STD-1913' rail.

lED Status Indicator Boresight Adjusters. The ATPIAl Visible and IR Aim l.asers are coaligned. Therefore, a single set of adjusters moves both aiming beams. Another set of adjusters moves the illumination beam. Markings on the ATPIAl housing indicate the direction of adjuster rotation and resultant shot group movement when the ATPIAl is Top-Mounted.

Zero Preset. The ATPIAL incorporates a unique zero preset feature which enables the co-aligned Visible and IR Aim lasers to be nearly zeroed when initially attached to the weapon. To establish this zero preset, rotate both the azimuth and elevation Aim laser Adjusters to the full CCW end of travel, then rotate them back 2.5 turns to align the slotted head in a 12 o'clock / 6 o'clock orientation. NOTE ATPIAl Boresight Adjusters move the aiming beams at the rate of 0.2 mrad per click. 2 clicks 1 box on a standard M16A1/A2 25 meter zeroing target.
at 25 Meters
1. On a 25-meter M 16A2 zeroing target, mark the designated strike point and designated strike zone for the weapon you are using (see Mounting Configurations and Weapon Offsets Table). 2. Mount the target on an "E" silhouette or other suitable surface at 25 meters. 3. Mount the ATPIAl to the weapon (see mounting procedures). 4. Rotate the Mode Selector to AL (AIM lOW). 5. Activate the Visible Aim Laser in continuous mode by doubletapping the Activation Button. 6. Direct the Visible Aim Laser aim at the center of the target. 7. Fire a 3-round shot group and note the center of the shot group relative to the designated strike paint. Re-tighten Rail Grabber Bracket. 8.
Rotate the Aim laser Adjusters to move the center of the shot group to the desiqnated strike point. 9. Fire another 3-round shot group and again observe the center of the new shot group relative to the designated strike point. 10. For all weapons except the M249, when 5 out of 6 consecutive rounds are in the desiqnatad strike zone, the ATPIAl I weapon combination is zeroed. For the M249, the ATPIAL! weapon combination is zeroed when 5 out of 12 non-consecutive rounds are within a 6cm square. 11. Once the aiming beams are zeroed, rotate the Mode Selector to the Dl (DUAL lOW) or DH (DUAL HIGH) position to observe both the IR aiming and illumination beams. Rotate the Illuminator Adjusters to center the illumination beam over the IR aiming beam.
