A successful hunt depends on maintaining a clear line-of-sight to the target. That view is often aided by the use of a scope or a pair of binoculars. The optical elements used in the design and layout in such visual aids dictates what the hunter sees, and does not see. Beyond a quality image, hunters also expect their gear to be built to withstand whatever nature has in store. The dynamic loading that occurs in optics used in various calibers of firearms and in cross bolt mechanisms can have a long term detrimental effect on optics and the support structure. Stress Outdoor® has the ability to quantify these loads and provide them as inputs to the optics designers to satisfy the needs of the system. The engineers and polymer scientists at Stress Outdoor® have extensive experience in optical layout, mechanical design and composites allowing us to work with

the client to develop the next generation of optics ready for the outdoors.
