MoU signed for new laser trike protection product for aircraft to be brought to commercial aviation market

On Tuesday , June 20, at the Paris Air Show Satair Group CEO Bart Reijnen and George Palikaras, Founder and CEO of Halifax, Canada-based Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (MTI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding which will lead to a global and exclusive sales and distribution agreement under which Satair Group will bring to market MTI's innovative metaAIR optical filter film which is adhered to the inside of aircraft cockpits and which deflects laser beams which are aimed at the flight deck.

Laser beam attacks are a growing safely problem in aviation with up to 10,000 attacks recorded in a year.

Below please find the news release to support this development (also attached). I also attach a photo of the signing ceremony with George Palikaras on the left and Bart Reijnen on the right.

Seperately, I will send a photo showing a demonstration of a laser beam being deflected from a metaAIR protected cockpit window and fact sheets about MTI, the metaAIR product and also about the growing problem of laser strikes against aircraft.
