The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has purchased Night Flight Concepts’ (NFC’s) Laser Armor Aviator Glasses to help protect airborne units respond against the growing danger of laser attacks.
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.
We invested in the Laser Armor Laser Defense solution to help enhance the safety of our aircrew based across the country, said 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 Canadas national police force, responsible for upholding public safety and security across the country. Operations include combating organized crime, terrorism, illicit drugs, economic crimes and offences that threaten the integrity of Canadas 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.
The RCMP has a track record of researching and investing in strategic night vision capabilities, said NFC President, Adam Aldous. We are very pleased to deliver the Laser Armor laser defence solution to augment the RCMPs existing night vision program and help mitigate the risk of laser strikes. 
All Laser Armor eyewear is bundled with access to self-paced, online Laser Armor laser defense training.
