Sierra Tango brings you world class Laser Strike Protection Equipment
Aiming a laser at an aircraft is a serious safety risk and violates federal law. High-powered lasers can disable pilots who are trying to fly safely to their destinations and may be carrying hundreds of passengers. Unfortunately, reported incidents of lasers aimed at aircraft are steadily increasing - with the number almost doubling from 1,527 in 2009 to 2,836 in 2010.
Until now, if a pilot wanted to fly with protection from laser strikes, the only option was to utilize amber colored view protection; usually in the form of goggles. While providing the necessary protection from green lasers, it forces the pilot to view the instrument panel through an amber filter at night. All instruments are seen in an orange tinted color and the pilot is unable to distinguish blue/green colors as the amber filter blocks them.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE
Aside from aviating and navigating consistently, the number one most effective prevention method for laser incidents is anticipation – when operating in a known or suspected laser environment, wear protective eyewear.
Sierra Tango LLC, with 25 years of broad experience in the aviation industry, has joined together with Brinell Vision Ltd., one of Europe’s leading companies in laser protection to provide you with products that are designed to equip complete coverage to the user from malicious laser strikes while maintaining a clear view within the true color spectrum.
The frames for the glasses model are manufactured to industrial laser protection standards. They are robust and can withstand daily usage for many years. The design provides wrap around laser strike protection to the wearer from any angle. The lens is clear coated for strike protection from green (532nm) and red (663nm) lasers. The lens can be manufactured with the user’s corrective vision prescription if desired.
This helmet visor is clear coated with the same green and red laser protection as the glasses. They are made for use on any helmet employing built-in or attached visors and provide the same true color spectrum vision for the user.
