Holographic Weapons Sight
A search for diffraction grating led a US-based weapons accessory manufacturer to contact Optometrics. The manufacturer expressed interest in redesigning the diffraction grating, a key component in their holographic weapons sight. Their diffraction grating currently in use had proven unreliable, and they had expressed an urgent need for replacing it with a better, more durable diffraction grating.
Through close customer collaboration the engineering team at Optometrics designed and patented a hybrid diffraction grating and optical filter which exceeded the customer’s highly demanding technical requirements. The product exceeded customer expectations on environmental durability, spectral precision and optical quality while simplifying the manufacturing process.
With R&D, engineering and manufacturing under one roof and a capacity to produce 500,000+ precision replicated optics annually Optometrics emerged as the go-to partner for their custom/OEM application.
The continued success of the engagement led to the weapons accessory manufacturer requesting additional components and complete assembly for their weapons sight.
