7/26/2013 Salvo Defense Develops Rugged Fire ­Control Optics

March 28, 2015

Orlando, FL—Salvo Defense LLC, the engineering services arm of the Salvo Technologies LLC group of companies, has launched the development of the Sapphire Fire Control product line of fire control optics, a family of ruggedized rifle scopes designed to survive the harshest conditions. A member of the Salvo Technologies LLC group of companies, Salvo Defense provides electro­optic assemblies and personal protective equipment for the security and defense, medical, industrial, and consumer sectors.

The Sapphire Fire Control product line will be, arguably, the toughest family of scopes on the market. The scopes will utilize the ballistic ­qualified transparent sapphire for both external lenses. Because of its extremely hard make­up, spinel is used as a transparent armor or bullet proof glass on military vehicles. It exhibits extreme scratch resistance, yet remains lightweight. By incorporating spinel, coupled with a titanium metal tube and MIL-STD­810g shock resistance, the devices will be able to not only survive the rigors of combat, they will emerge unscathed. Lightweight, rugged, and high ­performance, the promise of Spinel scopes has been met with enthusiastic responses from police, special forces units, and hunters alike. The systems will be manufactured in the United States by Salvo Defense’s sister company Salvo Electro-­Optics LLC and distributed globally by Hunt Distributing Co. (HDC). This product is slated to be launched in early 2015.
