The basics of warfare have remained unchanged for centuries. The how of that task has evolved. Today’s battlefield is replete with sophisticated weapons systems employing the latest technology. While many of these systems employ advances that replace or enhance individual actions, the individual still remains. The individual soldier, sailor, airman or marine is ultimately the most important component in the system. He or she must be given the very best of equipment to accomplish the mission as well as the very best to protect themselves. Vision — basic visual acuity and precise information display — is a critical element in their success. Whether the task is as complex as ensuring a pilot can bet his life on his heads-up-display or as mundane as a soldier’s clear, uncompromised vision in his gas mask, MXL manufactured optics provide clear, undistorted, flawless function.
