Revision of Vermont wins UK defense contract for eyewear

first_imgRevision Military Ltd,Based on soldier trials, technical compliance and best value pricing, Revision, leading developer of protective eyewear for militaries worldwide, has secured a  UK Ministry of Defence contract for Protective Combat Eyewear. Following tender evaluation and user trials, Revision was selected for providing the best value and for being the most technically compliant bidder. The estimated contract value is £3.4 million to provide the UK MoD with Revision’s Sawfly Military Eyewear System and Bullet Ant goggles. ‘Revision is extremely proud to receive the UK MoD contract for Protective Combat Eyewear,’ said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. ‘The focus behind all Revision eyewear is to meet and exceed the stringent requirements set forth by our military customers. It’s an honor to be supplying UK troops with what we believe to be the best performance-enhancing eye protection products.’ Colonel Peter Rafferty, Team Leader for Defence, Equipment and Support’s Personal Combat Equipment Team added: ‘All troops currently in Afghanistan are issued with protective eyewear as standard and these new additions are an enhancement over what is already out there. In addition to the ballistic protection these items offer, IED’s are a significant threat to our troops in theatre and the debris and dirt thrown up from a blast can be just as harmful to troops as the initial blast or fragmentation itself. This protective eyewear is the best chance they have of minimizing injuries to the eyes while still maintaining situational awareness and thus the ability to do their jobs.” The Revision Sawfly Military Eyewear System is an all-purpose spectacle designed to provide protection on a 24-hour, all-weather continuum. Maximizing fit, function and comfort, the Sawfly Military Eyewear System exceeds the rigorous optical and ballistic testing standards in use today; it is the most widely used military spectacle in service. The Bullet Ant Goggle System provides powerful ballistic protection against medium-energy fragmentation while protecting against the environment: sand, wind and dust. The goggle system features interchangeable OcuMax® coated lenses for high-performance anti-fog and anti-scratch capabilities and provides flawless optics for unprecedented visual clarity. The Bullet Ant Goggle also exceeds the rigorous testing standards in use today. Both products are prescription capable with a single insert’the Revision Rx Carrier. The Combat Protective Eyewear Tender (number DC4/4055) is the UK MoD’s first competition for protective eyewear since 2005. In addition to securing this procurement, Revision is the major supplier of protective eyewear for numerous NATO countries including the USA, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Belgium; Revision also fulfills the protective eyewear needs of 40 other countries around the world. Essex Junction, VT, USA (February 8, 2010) ABOUT REVISIONRevision develops and delivers purpose-built protective soldier equipment for military use worldwide.
