Night Flight Concepts Delivers Laser Armor Solution to RCMP

Reno, Nevada (July 12, 2012) — Night Flight Concepts, a leading provider of comprehensive night vision  solutions,  is pleased to announce the purchase and deployment of Laser ArmorTM Aviator Glasses by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to help airborne units respond to the growing danger of laser attacks on aircraft.

“We invested in the Laser Armor Laser Defense solution to help enhance the safety of our aircrew based across the country,” explained RCMP Chief Pilot, Jacques Giard. “Reports indicate that risk of laser illumination of aircraft cockpits is greatest around airports and other densely populated areas. The Laser Armor Aviator Glasses give our pilots a comfortable, easy way to mitigate these risks when and where the need is greatest.”

The RCMP is Canada’s national police force responsible for upholding public safety and security across Canada’s vast terrain. Operations include combating organized crime, terrorism, illicit drugs, economic crimes and offences that threaten the integrity of Canada’s national borders. The organization develops and maintains the highest standards in flight operations to ensure the safety, performance and support of local communities and law enforcement agencies 24/7.  With such a large mandate, the RCMP’s interest laser defence is not surprising: laser strikes have become a significant public safety issue in Canada.

“The RCMP has a track record of researching and investing in strategic night vision capabilities,” states NFC President, Adam Aldous. “We are very pleased to deliver the Laser Armor laser defence solution to augment the RCMP’s existing night vision program and help mitigate the risk of laser strikes.”

The Laser Armor Aviator Glasses are part of a suite of laser defense solutions from NFC designed to support the specific operational requirements of pilots and crewmembers in civil aviation. Laser Armor protective eyewear absorbs laser strike beams, without compromising visual acuity or cockpit display panel color recognition, and without compromising the user job performance. All Laser Armor eyewear is bundled with access to the self-paced, online Laser Armor Laser Defense Training. The cost-effective laser defense solution bundle uniquely ensures that organizations of any size have both the equipment and training needed to prepare aircrew for the possibility of a laser incident.
