|Publication Date:||11 September 2018|
General. This specification covers the Military Combat Eye Protection (MCEP) system. This document covers both prescription and non-prescription wearers. MCEP provides protection from dust, flying debris, and ballistic hazards both in training and on the battlefield while maintaining compatibility with existing Soldier equipment. This specification establishes the requirements for MCEP Qualification. Qualification of potential eyewear candidates is a process of testing product to ensure technical acceptability and auditing vendors to ensure quality management. Eyewear candidates must conform to the specification requirements outlined in this document before a purchase request is released to the public for the eyewear. This document covers MCEP systems that are both compatible and non-compatible with prescription eyewear issued to users. MCEP is a Critical Safety Item (CSI).
MCEP system is intended for use by military personnel for eye protection against ballistic fragmentation (primary function), electromagnetic radiation, as well as sand, wind, and dust.
