visAIRion: Unprecedented laser protection for aircrew

Next generation eye protection dedicated to the needs of the aircrew. Conquering a rising threat and consequences of laser attacks in aviation. To ensure flight safety and maintain the aircrew’s health.

These incidents can have catastrophic consequences for flight safety and aircrew’s health. While mission performance is only temporarily affected, permanent damage to eyesight can cause a high rate of absenteeism and considerable medical expenses, or even lead to the end of a crew member’s career.

To enhance safety for pilots and aircrews, of e.g. police, rescue services and army helicopters, ESG has developed visAIRion laser protection glasses, which meet the operational needs of the aircrew and the special requirements in a cockpit.

Meeting the needs of aircrews through

  • Comprehensive protection in six spectral ranges simultaneously
  • High colour fidelity and high transmission for colour recognition of cockpit instrumentation and optimal daytime and night flying
  • Flat temples and individual configuration possibilities for optimal fit and comfort on long-endurance missions
  • Compatibility for use with multiple helmets, helmet-mounted displays and night vision goggles
  • UV filtering and precautions against fogging
  • Suitability for spectacle wearers
  • According with DIN EN 207

Developed with highest expertise

Numerous tests were carried out together with the German Institute of Aerospace Medicine, the Bundeswehr Technical Center for Aircraft and Aeronautical Equipment (WTD61), mission pilots from Fritzlar and under expert supervision of the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) in Koblenz.

In September 2022, the first users (AH Tiger helicopter crew) were equipped with visAIRion laser protection glasses.
