Fraser Optics is pleased to announce its selection as the winner of the Lifesaving and Safety Equipment category in the 23rd DAME - Design Award METS Competition.
As the worlds number one international design competition for Maritime equipment and accessories, Fraser Optics' 14x40MM gyro-stabilized Monolite was in competition against 115 products from 12 countries. "We are honored by the selection and humbled by the award. Achieving victory on this global scale in competition with industry titans reflects the quality, craftsmanship and next generation approach we take with all of our products and in particular, our Monolite." said Tom Luketich,Vice President, Fraser Optics.
Engineered with Stedi-Eye® Technology, the military grade, lightweight Monolite is the world's first gyro-stabilized monocular. Designed for marine use, the internal gyro will remove up to 98 percent of image motion, providing crystal clear, razor sharp images while onboard and under way. With the new Monolite, it is easier to read the number on a buoy or name on a vessel at great distances, even in rough conditions. It's also 100 percent sealed, buoyant, submersible and waterproof, which means it is ideal for outdoor use and wet conditions.
Weighing in at just under 2 lbs., the unit is simple to operate, and can be transported with ease. The unit operates for up to 8 hours on one CR123 battery. The optional smartphone/smartpad attachment allows users to connect to the Monolite capturing still or video images directly to their smart device. The versatility of this unit makes it ideal for commercial or recreational mariners.
