REVISION WINS BALLISTIC EYEWEAR CONTRACT FOR
CANADIAN AIR FORCE

Montreal, QC, Canada (January 26, 2011) – Revision, leading developer of
ballistic protective eyewear for militaries worldwide, has secured a $2.7 million
contract with the Canadian DND to supply Air Force members with Ballistic
Eyewear (BEW), also known as the Sawfly Spectacle System. The initial contract
is to supply 33,000 kits and 40,000 additional lenses in 2011 with a 5 year option
period. Revision’s Sawfly Ballistic Eyewear was selected for its excellent ballistic
and optical properties as well as the company’s past performance record. Revision
first won the BEW contract for Canadian land forces in 2003 and has supplied this
eyewear through the 2003 – 2010 period.


“Revision is proud to provide the Canadian Air Force with their protective eyewear
needs,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “Today’s battlefield requires
protection from a growing list of threats, from IED shrapnel and flying debris to
harmful laser wavelengths. Revision’s Sawfly Ballistic Eyewear is a single system
that provides powerful ballistic protection and, at the customer’s request, the ability
to protect against laser threats with high-performance, specialty lenses.”


Revision’s Sawfly Ballistic Eyewear is an all-purpose spectacle designed to
provide protection on a 24-hour, all-weather continuum. Maximizing fit, function
and comfort, Sawfly Eyewear provides superior ballistic protection, exceeding
stringent Canadian performance specifications, ANSI Z87.1-2010 and U.S. military
ballistic impact requirements (MIL-PRF-31013, clause 3.5.1.1 and MIL-DTL-
43511D, clause 3.5.10); flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and rugged
durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat. This versatile
eyewear system can be outfitted with laser protective lenses to block multiple
wavelengths of light. It is also prescription capable with an optional Rx Carrier.
