Abstract
As optical systems increase in their sensitivity and sensors become more capable, modern and future rotary wing aircraft will suffer from the need to have transparent armor systems that are transparent in the visible wavelengths and sensor wavelengths of interest while incorporating low ohm coatings for shielding efficiency as well as filters to protect against laser threats. The challenge is in providing a system that increases crew protection by the reduction of laser threats, and solar loading on transparent armor while enhancing the shielding efficiency and not reducing the mission capabilities by limiting transmission in wavelengths of interest. Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. has addressed these current and future needs with the Eclipse Transparent Electrical Conductor (TEC) and Advanced Filter Technologies such as Rugate filter systems. The EclipseTECT is a flexible visually transparent electrical conductor (88%+ transmission at 550 nm,
