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.
