T6 unity vision periscope
The T6 unity vision periscope is an innovative proprietary design from Kent Periscopes. Developed specifically for multiple units to be installed, immediately adjacent to each other, in a vehicle Driver’s position. The resulting system creating a maximised, and virtually uninterrupted, panoramic horizontal field of view.
The T6 is routinely offered with the following options:
- Upgradable laser filter cassette, housed internally within the ballistic air gap
- Hinged metal blackout blind
- Choice of paint colour and finish

The periscope has a two glass prism system with desiccated ballistic gap providing important protection for the user. Each half of the periscope is collimated to +/- 15' of arc. This enables either half of the periscope to be replaced in the event of damage, and maintain the original collimation angle tolerance.
A laser filter cassette can be included, if required. Housed internally within the centre of the periscope, the cassette is protected from damage and is installed such that the periscope can be upgraded over time in order to respond to changes in threat level. Typical levels of protection required by our customers include YAG 1064nm (1.064µm) or Ruby 694nm (0.694µm). These levels of protection can be provided alone or on a combined basis. We also work with our customers to supply laser protection filters that meet other specific wavelength requirements.
The T6 periscope is part of the Kent Periscopes “T Series”. Periscopes in this series have typically been developed as an entirely new design in order to meet a specific set of requirements.
