Laser Devices, Inc. is known for making a wide range of lasers for Military and Law Enforcement and now have announced that they offer the first IR Laser available to the commercial market. In the past, IR Lasers have been restricted to just Military use as they have been too dangerous to use in a civilian setting. The Military has all the fun toys….until now. Give me a set of Night Vision Goggles and one of these IR Lasers and I’ll show you some fun.
Check out the information below. There was so much info that I had to just copy and past their press release. Just didn’t want to miss anything. 🙂
Monterey, Calif. – February 2, 2011, Laser Devices, Inc. is pleased to announce FDA Class I Infrared Laser Pointers for the DBAL-I2, EOLAD-1I and the ITAL-Classic & OTAL-Classic.
Class I IR Laser Pointers are now available for commercial purchase. Designed with the same cutting-edge technology as our high powered military devices, these NEW ‘Eye-Safe’ models are powered with a Class I, infrared laser pointer for use with night vision equipment. These products are particularly suitable for Law Enforcement agencies who engage in CQB work and require lasers that will not harm the public. The Class I IR Lasers are eye-safe due to their lower power output which makes these the first IR lasers approved for sale to the commercial market.
The DBAL-I2, Dual Beam Aiming Laser-Intelligent is equipped with a Class IIIa visible RED or GREEN laser pointer and a Class I infrared laser pointer. Built to perform under the most rigorous conditions and survive the harshest environments, the DBAL-I2 allows users to seamlessly transition from day light maneuvers to low light operations with ease.
The EOLAD-1I combines the power and precision of a Laser Devices’ IR laser pointer with the speed and proven effectiveness of the L-3 EOTech 552 Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS). This unbeatable combination provides lightning fast target acquisition and delivers impeccable shooting accuracy during any circumstance.
The battle proven ITAL-Classic and OTAL-Classic aiming lasers are rugged and compact—only 2.8 inches long and 1.4 inches wide. The ITAL mounts on flat top rifles or rifles with a cropped front sight and the laser aligns with the center of the barrel. The OTAL mounts behind the front sight on M4 style rifles and the laser is offset to project around the front sight.
Manufactured from rugged MIL-SPEC Type III hardcoat anodized aluminum; the DBAL-I2, EOLAD-1I, and ITAL/OTAL-Classic meet MIL-STD-810G for adverse environmental conditions and are waterproof to 20 meters (10 Meters for the EOLAD-1I).
These products are governed by FDA and ITAR regulations. For additional information and product features, please visit our website at www.laserdevices.com.
