Research Institution
The inorganic electrochromic, all-vacuum-deposited-at-low-temperature, all-solid-state variable transmission EclipseVTS™ (Variable Transmission System) offered by Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc., (Eclipse) is the Army’s solution. Adoption of EclipseVTS™ will enable the warfighter to finally have a dimmable eyewear system that: is highly transmissive; is user controlled, is fast switching, has high range of modulation; and, is low temperature vacuum deposited directly onto the complex curved ballistic lens eliminating the vision distortion caused by the sandwiched sheets of plastic used in organic electrochromics, liquid crystal and SPD systems.
