Camouflage your Optics! Modern optics can be a powerful assistance in observation and targeting, but reflections from those same optics can generate a strong signature that can give away your location to even an untrained, technologically unsophisticated observer.
|The traditional way to shield an optic from glint is to use a long, tubular lens shade. The problem is, if a shade is long enough to effectively shield the optic from glint, it can be too long and bulky for practical use in the field.
||Tenebraex ARDs work by a clustering a large number of tiny tubes into a honeycomb-like grid. The length-to-width ratio has a certain selected relationship to the field of view of the optical system. With this patented geometry, there's no vignetting or reduction in the field-of-view, light reduction is only on the order of 15%, any loss in resolution is imperceptible, and glint is eliminated.
||For you, a clearer view. Tenebraex ARDs also act to shield the interior of an optic from the sun's rays, thus reducing internal glare and making for a clearer view when looking up-sun. Tenebraex ARDs work well on visible light optics such as rifle scopes and binoculars, as well as on night vision optics and thermal sights.
