Our Company and Vision:
At AimLock, we believe the good guys should always have a clear edge over the bad guys, whether in war or while keeping the peace. So, we adopted a simple but ambitious mission: To enable the US and its allies to dominate the firefight with aiming technologies that engage instantly and never miss. Most people said we were dreaming, but we boldly set out to accomplish the impossible anyway. After years of research and development, we created AimLock technology, and the world will never be the same.

Headquartered in Denver, CO, AimLock was founded in 2013 by a group of industry leaders and armaments experts. Our business revolves around the development and commercialization of AimLock’s revolutionary technology—both internally and in concert with our military and strategic partners—to create next-generation weapon systems that provide the US and its allies with force-overmatch in the small arms fight. We are currently performing on DoD research and development contracts and have launched sales of select products to domestic and international Military and Law Enforcement customers.
