Internationally downward pressure on defence budgets has meant that the majority of military equipment contractors are looking for ways to provide fit for purpose products at competitive prices.
One approach to reducing cost has been to source the lowest price standard optical components / systems and then work to make them suitable for the military application the product is being supplied for.
