Abom has received a phase one contract from the US Special Operations Command to conduct a feasibility study for the development of a new tactical active anti-fogging goggle, the company announced on 9 July.

The innovative tactical active anti-fogging goggle or spectacle will be developed in a smaller form factor than traditional goggles, in order to enhance the situational awareness, operational readiness and sustained human performance of Special Operations Forces operating in harsh conditions.

The preferred tactical goggles or spectacles will not employ passive anti-fog technologies such as coatings to prevent or reduce condensation. Power supplies will be self-contained and will not exhibit any significant snag hazards.

If the work continues to the next phase, the company will continue to develop and demonstrate prototype systems and test those systems in a simulated operational environment.

Abom’s heated anti-fog solutions use an ultra-low power thin-film technology with a transparent, conductive layer sandwiched between two polycarbonate lenses. The thin-film technology has been designed to optimise battery life while delivering maximum power conservation.
