Abrégé

This disclosure describes a compact and lightweight rifle scope display adapter configured to be affixed in front of the objective lens of a rifle scope. The display adapter includes a receptacle that enables the adapter to be electrically connected to a ballistic computer, rangefinder or other targeting mechanism. The display adapter is configured to receive aimpoint information and project illuminated symbology that is brought into focus by the rifle scope optics in such a way that the symbology appears to overlay an image of a scene on which the rifle scope is focused. The display adapter includes a casing that houses processing circuitry, a light emitting diode, polarizer, polarized beam splitter, liquid crystal on silicon imaging element and reflective element. The display adapter also includes a light bar, spherical mirror, quarter-wave plate and an additional polarized beam splitter contained within the light bar.
