The Shalon ballistic, sun, wind, dust and laser goggles

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We designed, manufactured and field-tested new combat protection goggles which endow their users with optimal protection against ballistic injuries as well as against dust, sand and wind. A laser protection filter can be snapped on the ballistic goggles. Filters can be provided for any required wavelength. The goggles are of a warp-around shape ensuring peripheral as well as frontal protection. It is "one size fits all" design with the least possible clearance between eye and lens so as to cause minimal interference with the use of optical equipment such as binoculars. There is an integral insert for prescription lenses inside the goggles. The head bands are self locking and putting the goggles on and off with or without a helmet on is easy.
