ESS Awarded Major Singapore Armed Forces Contract

August 1, 2007  |  ESS UPDATES

Sun Valley, Idaho, USA

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.  Announced in March 2007, this exclusive one-year contract is for the supply of ESS Asian-Fit Striker goggles, and includes an available option year.  The SAF has assigned the ESS 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 (helmets, NVG's, and weapon sights).  These factors--along with comfort, visibility, ease of fit and adjustment, and the new Asian-Fit lens and frame design--were major considerations in the trials 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,' said Major (NS) Lee Kok Tong, of Singapore.  'In our very hot and humid climate, we cannot afford to have the lens fogged up every time we are ready to shoot.'

In February 2007, the Singapore Police Force also procured the ESS Asian-Fit Profile TurboFan' goggle via solicitation #HOMSPFETQ07000064.

'ESS is honored to be exclusively selected by the Singapore Armed Forces,' commented ESS President and CEO, John Dondero.  'We look forward to a lasting partnership with the SAF and remain dedicated to bringing the finest protecive eywear available to Singapore soldiers and police officers.'

"Dear ESS, On deployment in 2012, my vehicle was struck with an IED while performing route clearance in Afghanistan. The IED flipped my vehicle, knocking me unconscious and launching my rifle into my face. My cheek, nose, and eye socket were shattered from the impact, but my eye was saved from the ESS Crossbow I was wearing. When I put a pair of Crossbows back on, you can clearly see where I would have lost my eye if I wasn't wearing them." SSG Pronzati
