ESS AWARDED MAJOR SINGAPORE ARMED FORCES CONTRACT
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) awarded Contract No. KP0619-20705 to Eye Safety Systems Inc.(ESS) of Sun Valley, Idaho USA, via their Singapore agent, Ryca Pte Ltd. The exclusive one-year contract
with available option year, announced in March 2007, is for the supply of the ESS Asian Fit Striker™ goggles. The SAF has instituted the Asian Fit Striker goggle with SSN 8465-32-080-3321.
The decision was the result of two years of careful trial, evaluation, and development. ESS produced a unique combination of impact protection, anti-fog technology, interchangeable lenses (smoke gray and clear), and integration with existing equipment (helmet, NVG, and weapon sight). These factors, along with the new Asian-fit lens and frame design, comfort, ease of fit and adjustment, and visibility were major factors in the trial and evaluations.
‘Besides the superb ballistics performance of the ESS lenses, which withstood practical testing by the evaluators, the Asian Fitting and anti-fog technology were also winning formulas. In our very hot and humid climate, we cannot afford to have the lens fogged up every time we are ready to shoot.’ – Major(NS) Lee Kok Tong of Ryca Pte Ltd.
‘ESS is honored to be exclusively selected by the Singapore Armed Forces,’ said ESS President and CEO, John Dondero, ‘We look forward to a lasting partnership in eyewear innovation to protect Singapore soldiers and police officers.’
The Singapore Police Force also procured the ESS Asian Fit Profile TurboFan™ goggle via solicitation #HOMSPFETQ07000064 in February 2007.
