The HWS has been designed and tested to provide consistent, reliable performance even in the most hostile operational environments. It is waterproof, fog proof, shockproof, and temperature proof.
The HWS is designed to withstand Mil-Spec drop tests and still remain fully operational and hold zero. The HWS has been extensively tested in a punishing recoil simulator generating 3,500 G's of acceleration in less than 0.5 milliseconds (the recoil of a .454 Casull revolver) as well as various environmental chambers).
The Heads Up Display is constructed with a 3 layer, shatterproof laminate glass that is 3/16" thick for added durability. Additional protection of the Heads Up Display is provided with a "roll bar" ruggedized hood.
No Revealing Signature
The HWS does not emit any muzzle side position revealing light signature...the projected reticle pattern is visible only to the operator. Even Gen III night vision equipment cannot detect muzzle side signature of the operator's position.
All optical surfaces are flat and treated with anti-reflective coatings eliminating additional muzzle side signature due to reflective glare. No need for costly glare elimination filters that reduce the effective light transmission and further dim the target area.
