Software editor Optis has announced that the US Air Force Research
Laboratory at Brooks City-Base in San Antonio has chosen its light and color simulation
software, OptisWorks, to simulate laser protection eyewear. The software has enabled
the lab to approve or reject a manufacturer’s design for use by military aircrew.
OptisWorks integrates completely into SolidWorks Corp.’s 3-D CAD program,
which was integrated into the lab’s SPEOS solution in 2001.
