Abstract : The product improvement test of the M72A1 LAW was performed to evaluate the safety of the M46E1 night sight. The weapon with the night sight was environmentally tested to determine if release of the radioactive material would occur during severe conditions which may be experienced during use. The sight was found to be safe for use under extreme climatic and rough handling environments.
