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.

Millions could be saving $200 a month on mortgages

first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Christine DiGangi, Credit.comAbout 6.5 million mortgage borrowers could qualify for and benefit from refinancing their home loans, according to the “Mortgage Monitor Report” from Black Knight Financial Services, which could translate into massive savings for those consumers.The report, based on May 2015 data, puts the total potential annual savings at $20 billion, with as many as 3 million borrowers saving at least $200 a month in mortgage payments.The vast majority of homeowners could realize these savings through traditional refinancing, the analysis showed, while roughly 450,000 homeowners would be eligible for lower interest rates on their home loans through HARP, the Home Affordable Refinance Program. HARP is geared toward borrowers whose homes have declined in value, therefore preventing them from securing traditional refinancing.Black Knight arrived at these figures by analyzing borrower and mortgage data, specifically the 30-year fixed-rate loan. In a news release about the analysis, Black Knight noted that rate fluctuations could change borrowers’ ability to save. continue reading »last_img read more
