High performance
optics for UAV
payloads & drones

Whatever your needs, we’ve got the lens


With decades of knowledge and experience for both Long Wave Infrared & Mid Wave Infrared lenses for the UAV industry, Ophir has earned its reputation as a world-leading designer and manufacturer in this field.
We develop and deliver a wide range of IR complex lens assemblies with fixed, motorized focus and zoom lenses, which supports UAV MWIR & LWIR imaging.
Ophir provides a global solution for infrared imaging for UAV payloads, for military, security and emerging UAV applications.
Our in-house R&D team works in collaboration with defense and commercial customers to develop and design guidelines that optimize the specific size, weight and power (SWAP) constraints of the UAV payload platform, with the unparalleled optical performance for which we are known worldwide.
