We have become an optically-driven military. Modern optical systems produce the highest quality images, give protection from an enemy’s offensive lasers and allow troops to see and target at night and even into the thermal range. Unfortunately these same optics also have the ability to betray their own position by reflected light.
Being seen can mean being hit
Being detected because of reflections has resulted in the loss of personnel, the failure of missions… and even changed the course of battles. ARDs (Anti-Reflection Devices) use a high-tech honeycomb material and patented geometry to provide a low-cost, retrofittable and field practical way to hide reflections from optical surfaces… without loss of resolution and with minimal light loss. Tenebraex’s ARDs are used by U.S. Army, Navy, Marines and Special Forces.
