The company claims that the device is capable of improved first-shot hit capability at all ranges. The MR 500 is designed to minimize time and supports all users because of its ambidextrous design.

The device incorporates an infrared target marker and illuminator and weighs only 11 ounces (300 grams). It is suitable for both underslung and standalone grenade launchers.
The system can also store 32 ballistic tables, two of which can be selected using a dedicated selector switch. It can communicate with external devices such as TAC-Ray clip-on (rifle-mounted) laser rangefinder.
