To support the U.S. military’s efforts to deploy commercial-off-the shelf tablets for the digitalization of the battlefield, Cevians developed a wide array of films and filter solutions to provide external, permanent or removable, NVIS compatibility to tablets and laptops. Display systems can be enhanced with a removable iSafeNight filter or permanently ruggedized with a low reflection optically bonded material, ensuring permanent NVIS compliance to MIL-STD-3009. Material composition and finishes also improve sunlight readability by reducing front surface reflection. iSafeNight solutions are compliant with MIL-STD-3009, enabling soldiers to move undetected by enemy infrared detection capabilities, and the use of tablets in the cockpit during night missions.
VKK Leading Edge Technology
iSafeNight is based on Cevians multiple material formulations including VKK technology. The thin filtering layer, 0.012” or less, maintains a high level of red content while absorbing detrimental near-infrared and infrared energy, all without interfering with normal touch functionality.
The iSafeNight filter is reusable and is either maintained in place by a custom retention system or by integrating Cevians nano-shaped features that guarantee adherence without the use of chemical agents. This makes the filter entirely and easily washable and reusable.
The product is available for a number of COTS tablets, monitors, and phones including Apple, Samsung, Panasonic, Microsoft, and Getac with various options to maintain the filter in position. This includes a self-adhering surface that allows for rapid installation and removal.
Custom Mounting Features & Cases
Cevians has worked closely with military users, air, and ground to develop a number of custom mechanical mounting features or tablet cases that allow quick installation or removal of the filter.
