Angel 7 Industries, developers of the Ghost Shield light adaptive/photochromic technology, have announced their new ballistic lens technology, i-RMR. This lens technology is capable of a V0 of greater than 1000 feet per second and a V50 of almost 950 feet per second. The full release can be read below:
LIGHT ADAPTIVE, VERSATILE TRANSPARENT ARMOR FOR EYE PROTECTION SYSTEMS
Angel 7 Industries, LLC.(A7) has developed a next generation, versatile, and enhanced ballistic lens technology called i?RMR™. which has recently completed testing in accordance with ANSI Z87.1?2010, EN 166 and U.S. military ballistic impact requirements for spectacles (MILPRF-32432, clause 220.127.116.11.4, superseding former MIL?PRF?31013, clause 18.104.22.168.) and goggles (MILPRF-32432, clause 22.214.171.124.5, superseding former MIL-DTL-43511D, clause 3.5.10). The test results showed that the new lens technology achieved a V0 of greater than 1000 feet per second and a V50 of almost 950 feet per second! i-RMR™ lens technology has achieved these remarkable results without increasing lens thickness or weight and while maintaining perfect optical clarity. This new lens technology is a patents-pending, proprietary process that not only drastically increases the protective capability of a lens, it also allows A7 to combine other lens technologies in various and unique combinations in the manufacturing process which eliminates costly and time consuming secondary steps. i-RMR™ lenses can be combined with laser absorbing dyes, with polarization, with high definition solutions or any combination of these options. The process is completely automated which ensures consistent quality and drastically speeds up production time while reducing waste in comparison to traditional “flow coating” methods.
A7’s new Ghost Shield™ light adaptive/photochromic technology is one of the various lens enhancements that can be combined with i-RMR™ technology. Ghost Shield™ photochromic technology is greater than 90% clear (VLT) in it’s unactivated state and automatically adapts (tints) to any lighting condition in less than 10 seconds. The proprietary manufacturing process actually embeds the photochromatic material directly into the lens material so that there is nothing to scratch off and nothing that can be affected by sand, dirt, mud, or chemicals. The value proposition to an operator is twofold; 1. The operator now can utilize the most ballistically capable lens technology in the industry and 2. One Ghost Shield™ lens takes the place of both a clear and a tinted lens which means one less piece of gear to carry and keep up with, and less cost to agencies.
