    Short of some miracle coating that makes glass anti reflective or using some sort of ultra fine polarized screen,
    I don't have a clue how to stop on axis reflection.

    There are already countermeasure systems.
    These systems were designed for battlefield observation equipment not sniper scopes but can be adapted.
    They include an extremely fast solenoid driven shutter commanded by a laser detector.

    FWIW, back in 2005, a Meth-Lab in Oklahoma was outfitted with laser (speed trap) detectors as part of their security apparatus. In preparation for a raid one of the SWAT snipers pinged the lab building with his laser to determine the range and the place came alive. Subsequent to the raid it was discovered that there was 360-degree coverage using commercial laser detectors.

    There are always smart people on booth sides...

    It's unfortunate that 'smarts' don't always come with 'morals'

    So there will be some way to 'defeat' the 'countermeasures' ... I love learning about the technology of war, and how it comes about... And lots of our everyday things come from this exact fight...

    It will be cool to see how this progresses in the next 10years... May be some cool stuff.

    Today in a conflict between Tier-1 nations the greatest danger to a sniper is blinding laser weapons.

    Although The UN Protocol on Blinding Laser Weapons, Protocol IV went into force back in July 1998 it doesn't protect snipers.

    See below:

    Article 1
    It is prohibited to employ laser weapons specifically designed, as their sole combat function or as one of their combat functions, to cause permanent blindness to unenhanced vision, that is to the naked eye or to the eye with corrective eyesightg devices. The High Contracting Parties shall not transfer such weapons to any State or non-State entity.

    Article 3
    Blinding as an incidental or collateral effect of the legitimate military employment of laser systems, including laser systems used against optical equipment, is not covered by the prohibition of this Protocol.

    I predict that someday soon we'll see a wide distribution of sniper optics equipped with laser detectors and high speed shutters. (Filters alone won't work.)
    These devices will most probably be prohibited for civilian sale. (But you can build your own.)

    The LCD welding hoods are getting cheap.
    Product idea for Tennabrex?
    Integrate a laser detector into the ARD and couple it to a retrofitted eyepiece cover similar to the polarized eyepiece they currently sell

    If it can quickly gimbal the ARD 20-30 degrees it would also block any return glint.
    A louvered or iris system may be too slow

    The next obvious thing to do is take the human eye out of the direct optical path.
    Use a wide bandwidth CCD and ultra high resolution display. .
    More pixels per mm than the eye has cones cells per mm will eventually be possible.
