metaAIR® – Laser Glare Protection
metaAIR is a dielectric (non-metallic) optical metamaterial filter which has been scientifically engineered to provide laser protection. metaAIR has been created from polymer materials using nano-patterned designs which are engineered to interact with incoming light, to block and deflect it. It can be applied to windscreens, windows, protective eyewear, retractable visors and optical sensors, and to almost any clear glass or plastic surface.
Laser strikes on commercial aircraft have risen over the years and laser pointers are increasing in power and decreasing in price. Lasers can distract and even harm pilots during critical phases of flight and can cause temporary visual impairment. In 2015 there were over 10,000 laser incidents reported to the FAA, the UK Civil Aviation Authority, and Transport Canada.
metaAIR can be used at both night or day. It has a high visual light transmittance.
metaAIR will be produced in sheets or meter-scale rolls.
metaAIR is a lightweight, flexible, optical filter.
metaAIR can be applied to existing surfaces or new ones.
metaAIR is can be used on windows and windscreens, protective eyewear, optical sensors and can be applied to almost any clear glass or plastic surface.
ULTRAVIOLET (UV) PROTECTION
metaAIR will offer up to 99% protection from harmful UV rays from the sun.
