Optex Systems has received $841,000 in orders for its laser protected periscopes with an option for an additional $841,000 from the US Army Contracting Command.

Optex's periscopes will be installed in the Abrams US military land vehicles, which are main battle tanks used by the US Army. The Company's laser periscopes come with optional laser protection in both glass and plastic, to protect soldiers' eyes during battle.

"This demonstrates the superiority of our military periscopes as a best value solution with world-class field performance. Through this established customer, we are able to expand our order base to provide a recurring revenue stream while strengthening our foothold in the market. We take pride in providing great optics solutions for our soldiers who are utilizing and maintaining the current Abrams fleet. We remain committed to our focus on development and innovation and anticipate many forthcoming purchase orders".
