NS firm develops new pilot protection
A Nova Scotia firm has pioneered a new anti-laser guard to protect pilots threatened by those flashing increasingly powerful lasers at airliner cockpits. Designed by Metamaterial Technologies Inc. and its optical filters division, Lamda Guard, the guard is a thin film that can be fixed to the inside of a cockpit window to protect pilots. Metamaterial announced a deal with Airbus Tuesday to test and certify its new product at Halifax's Discovery Centre.
