ESG supplies visAIRion laser safety glasses to Brandenburg police helicopter squadron

ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH has been commissioned by the procurement authority for the Brandenburg police force to supply its pioneering visAIRion laser safety glasses to the pilots of the Brandenburg police helicopter squadron. The laser safety goggles have now been handed over to the future users at the Ahrensfelde site. The police helicopter squadron now has laser protection equipment that meets the special challenges of police missions. 

ESG’s visAIRion laser safety glassesfor aircraft crews, which are now also used successfully by the German Armed Forces, not only offer optimum, customisable ergonomic features and maximum wearing comfort, but above all a broadband protective effect while at the same time ensuring sufficient transmission for external vision in poor weather or night vision conditions. With the initial equipment of its pilots, the Brandenburg police force is taking on a pioneering role in the police environment worldwide with regard to optimising the operational capability of its helicopter squadron by sustainably increasing protection against the increasing dangers of laser attacks.
The visAIRion team at ESG is responding to the changing threat situation posed by the possibility of attacks with new laser pointer models by continuously reviewing the protection spectrum and optical performance of the laser safety glasses and developing them further where necessary. Among other things, ESG is currently working on variants of laser safety glasses that are also suitable for non-ballistic cockpit windows and whose filter technology can be used to replace visors, as well as mask goggles for dust-intensive environments.
