Mil-Spec Lasers

Mil-Spec Lasers Overview

Mil-Spec lasers are specifically designed for demanding ruggedization requirements of the military deployment.  Typically, these lasers go through extensive shock and vibration testing to ensure durability in hostile environments.  Most lasers for military applications are either direct diode sources or DPSS lasers due to their long lifetimes and minimal maintenance requirements.   Additionally, Mil-Spec lasers are often water and dust resistant generally carrying ingress protection rating of IP65 or higher.  All of the mil-spec lasers offered by RPMC have been thoroughly tested to ensure they meet the necessary military requirements.  The actively q-switched, high pulse energy lasers listed below are often used in demanding applications such as laser designators, LIDAR systems, and infrared illuminators.
