Angel 7 Industries – A7 Stealth Eye Pro

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

This is a release from Angel 7 Industries, through their A7 Defense & Aerospace division, regarding the release of the new A7 Stealth Eye Pro. The full release can be read below:

  
A7 Defense & Aerospace, a division of Angel 7 Industries, is proud to introduce the new A7 Stealth eye pro with super ballistic i-RMR technology, Ghost Shield super fast photochromic technology, and next-gen Laser Eye Protection (820-1064nm) all in one lens!

i-RMR technology is the industries’ most ballistically advanced and can defeat a shotgun blast, using steel shot, from 15 feet away. Ghost Shield is the industries’ fastest photochromic technology that darkens to 13% VLT in less than ten seconds, and is also the toughest as it is not a coating but is embedded in the lens material itself so there is nothing to scratch off and nothing that can be affected by sand, fuels, chemicals, etc. These two one-of-a-kind technologies have now been combined with next generation Laser Eye Protection (LEP) that protects in the range of 820-1064nm with a high VLT resulting in one lens with multi-mission, multi-threat capability.

    Angel 7 Industries – Imagery From The Latest Photo Shoot

    Monday, September 14th, 2015

    Angel 7 Industries has provided imagery and a release from their latest photo shoot of the i-RMR ballistic lens technology.

    FullSizeRender2

    The most versatile eye pro on the market. A7 has developed a proprietary manufacturing process that allows various technologies to be combined into a single lens for multi mission capable eye pro systems that can be worn either day or night. A7’s Ghost Shield photochromic technology, the industry’s fastest and clearest photochromic, has successfully been combined with High Definition, LEP, and mirrored options (MP series) that transform from slightly sheened lenses into fully mirrored lenses in direct sunlight.

    The benefit is that an operator now only needs to carry one lens instead of two or three to compensate for different threat levels and for day and night time use. A7’s Apollo, Raptor, and Stealth eye pro systems will debut at the 2015 DESI show in London, the world’s leading international Security and Defense event.

    Angel 7 Industries – i-RMR Ballistic Lense Technology

    Thursday, June 18th, 2015

    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

    apollo-left

    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 4.4.3.3.4, superseding former MIL?PRF?31013, clause 3.5.1.1.) and goggles (MILPRF-32432, clause 4.4.3.3.5, 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.

    Angel 7 Industries – Ghost Shield A.M.T.

    Ghost Shield is a proprietary manufacturing process which allows Angel 7 to embed photochromic material directly into the ballistic polycarbonate which makes up the lenses of the glasses. This process increases the density of the polycarbonate, which means there’s no material to scratch off, and the lenses are also impervious to chemicals, saltwater, sand, and other damaging substances that can be found in an operational environment. The process is also fully automated, which, according to Angel 7, allows them to produce a higher yeld at a lower cost, and 14 times faster when compared to a “flow coated” product.

    The features that Ghost Shield offers includes:

    – 35% faster transition time when compared to other photochromic products on the market
    – 90% clear in its unactivated state when compared to 78% clear from the next closest competitor
    – Exceeds MilSpec ballistic requirements

    Ghost Shield technology is being adapted to the following areas:

    Ghost Shield A.M.T. (All Mission Tactical) – for Ground combat, law enforcement, airfield and flight deck personnel.
    Ghost Shield A.M.A. (All Mission Air) – for pilot and aircrew personnel fixed and rotary wing.
    Ghost Shield Gridiron – football helmet shields
    Ghost Shield Power Sport – smotorcycle faceshields, goggles, and glasses.

    In the below video, you can view Ghost Shield A.M.T. in action during a jump.

    Angel 7 Sidewinder Power Rail System

    Friday, May 25th, 2012

    ArmorSource has integrated the new Sidewinder Powered Rail into their new helmet line.

    The Sidewinder is the industry’s first powered helmet accessory platform. Designed, engineered, and patented by Kerry Harris, it is a product of A7 Tactical Systems, LLC.

    The Sidewinder is designed to directly attach and power accessories such as cameras, high powered illumination devices, etc. These accessories can be used independently or together on either side of the helmet. The big advantage here is that accessories no longer require battery compartments. This means lighter weight and sleeker design as well as alleviating the need to swap out batteries for individual items. In fact, the Sidewinder features a single, hot swappable power cell.

    These reactor power cells custom designed with a built in protection chip that prevents incidental or purposeful shorting of the system even when it is fully submerged. The Reactor power packs are lightweight, flat, weighs only a few ounces, and can be replaced in a matter of seconds without removing the helmet. The Reactor cells are fully rechargeable which reduces the hazmat issue associated with the disposal of standard AAA, AA, lithium, and other disposable cells.

    Angel 7 has already designed several accessories including:

    1. The A7 Tactical Illuminator (TIL) boasting 130 lumens at a mere 3 inches long and 29.4 grams. It offers 3 hrs usage time.

    2. The A7 micro cam features one touch operation, 720dp, 5 hours usage time in a compact package.

    3. Gunfighter combat goggles clip directly on to the Sidewinder platform. Angel 7 has leveraged work on aviation helmets to offer 4 different visor options including photochromic and LEP.

    In addition to powered accessories, the Sidewinder is mil std 1913 so it will also accommodate traditional, non-powered items that fit on a Picatinny rail. And, the Picatinny compatibility is extremely important because Angel 7 has also developed a powered weapon rail that will be unveiled soon. This means, that for the first time, you will have compatibility between weapon and helmet, including power for your cameras, illuminators, lights and other accessories.

    Of additional interest, Angel 7 has already produced Sidewinder variants in A-TACS, MultiCam and digital desert.
