For those wondering if your aircraft could benefit from VTOL protective laminates, consider this video. By clicking on the "play" icon, you can see how many particle impacts could be generated in a "brown-out" type landing. Particle impacts on transparencies are also very common in multi-ship operations.
Notice the large airborne particles that are impacting the aircraft windscreen in the top right section of the video. VTOL protective laminates will mitigate this impact damage from airborne particles, prevent the windscreen abrasion caused by sand, and will have added benefits with respect to bird-strikes and post-flight maintenance.
