Aviation, commercial and military, is new area in optics that is suffering from laser threats in the last years. Dazzling and damage to pilot's eyes by laser pointers is a common threat lately. Under certain conditions, laser light, directed at aircraft can be hazardous. The most likely scenario is when bright visible laser light causes distraction and/or temporary flash blindness to the pilot, during a critical phase of flight like landing or takeoff. It is also possible, that a visible or invisible beam could cause permanent damage to a pilot's eyes. This paper presents a novel technology for protection of the human eye against laser threats in the visible range.
