Mil-Spec lasers (or military lasers) are specifically designed for demanding ruggedization requirements for military deployment. Typically, these lasers go through extensive shock and vibration testing to ensure durability in hostile environments. Most military-grade lasers are either direct diode sources or DPSS lasers due to their long lifetimes and minimal maintenance requirements. Additionally, these 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 often support the Defense Market, in demanding Standoff Detection applications such as laser designators and range finders, and in Mapping & Imaging applications such as LIDAR systems, 3D Scanning, Bathymetry, Night Vision, and infrared illuminators.
