Selected Industrial Views with Benny Kokia, Vice President Marketing and Sales, Meprolight
On the occasion of SHOT Show 2017, MILITARY TECHNOLOGY publishes the Second Annual Rugged Tactical Tools for Extreme Conditions (RTTEC) Series that conveys the thoughts and messages of the world’s tactical equipment leaders, according to the question: “As soldiers and Special Forces operators expect their gear to be 100% reliable, how do you step up to offer extremely durable, rugged gear to keep operations running?”
Survivability of combating forces and successful mission completion depend on full reliability of the equipment at hand. Forces in battle need to respond accurately and quickly through all given conditions, without those becoming an obstacle to the quality and swiftness of their performance. Meprolight’s goal is to provide combating forces with such products. We provide a variety of electro-optical solutions of the highest quality, designed and manufactured based on the most advanced technologies and using materials of the highest quality. Be it thermal imaging or night vision solutions, laser designator finders, self-illuminated or other advanced devices – they are all the outcome of our extreme attention to customer requirements, and our constant effort to ensure that goal. Our products are versatile, simple to operate and quick to be reinstalled and ready for action. They are light-weighted and extremely accurate.
We are tuned to the needs rising from the field. Combating forces each have precise and detailed demands regarding the specific needed level of performance, assurance for total reliability in operation and storage while at the most extreme environmental conditions, swift and simple usage, and other parameters. These are all provided to them with our equipment. We especially-design our products according to those actual specific needs, battlefield conditions and performance demands as the customer facing them requires.
Extreme attention is payed to high resistance to harsh environmental conditions. We provide systems that function flawlessly, with no environmental interfering influences of any sort while in action or in storage.
Our systems are all designed, produced, ruggedised and tested to perform in and withstand the harsh conditions and environment as required. Those include extreme weather (cold, heat, winds, sand storms, humidity, dryness, fog, etc.), water, mud, sand, battering, unforgiving storage conditions and more.
Accordingly, materials are carefully chosen to withstand conditions in action and in storage, electronics supplied with assisting devices, such as a special radiator installed within, to keep it cooled properly to flawlessly perform at all times and conditions, all the system’s elements – materials, electronics, hardware and packaging – are carefully tested for all conditions and for a long durability.
We stay in close and constant touch with the forces, getting real-time feedback from the field. That enables us to quickly make improvements and alterations accordingly. Moreover, our engineers have a user understanding of that feedback, having personal relevant field experience from their own military service.
