Application Note: IR Thermal Imaging Lenses for Counter Unmanned Systems (C-UAS)

BACKGROUND Drones’ proliferation in recent century raise potential security threats to both civilian and military entities. Such threats triggered to a new, rapidly emerging Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS) technologies. Its mission is to detect, identify and disable such threats. Infrared (IR) based systems, or IR imaging combined in such multi-sensor types of systems, is a prevalent technology enabling detection, identification and tracking the small unmanned aerial system (sUAS). Ophir designs and manufactures precise, long-range IR continuous zoom lenses for integration into premier C-UAS platforms. Ophir lenses give the C-UAS the best advantage in both identification and acquisition / targeting capabilities.

Application Note: IR Zoom Lenses for Long-Range Security and Surveillance Applications

BACKGROUND In the security and surveillance markets, long range, infrared (IR) imaging plays an increasingly important role for monitoring, tracking, and targeting. The worldwide market for IR systems for commercial and dual-use security and surveillance applications is estimated to grow rapidly and reach a total of $243 million dollars by 2025,[1] with a CAGR of 6.1% (2019-2025).

Application note: IR Optics for Automotive Night Vision and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS)

ABSTRACT: Poor visibility is a leading cause of traffic collisions worldwide¹, especially during night time hours and harsh weather conditions like fog, smoke, heavy rain and snow. Night vision systems are often used to provide increased vehicle and pedestrian safety, especially in these challenging conditions. When it comes to developing optics for these systems, there must be high thermal imaging quality, and long distance object detection, to minimize collision risk and provide maximum performance.
