Webinar: Infrared (IR) Optics for Long-Range Security and Surveillance App

The observation-systems industry has significantly evolved and grown in recent years. Alongside this growth, we have seen the development of security and surveillance imaging applications with increasingly advanced infrared imaging systems, containing detectors that are larger in size and smaller in pixel size, which present challenges for thermal imaging optical systems. These include low SWaP, lightweight requirements, while maximizing imaging performance in line with detector capabilities, allowing for high resolution vision.

应用注意事项:适用于无人飞行器和无人机的SWap高级红外光学镜头.

摘要:近年来,无人飞行器行业已取得了长足的进步。在进步的同时,我们也看到了无人飞行器和无人机的发展,并且红外成像系统越来越先进,其中包含了尺寸更大、像素更小的探测器,这些都对无人飞行器的光学镜头提出了挑战。

应用注意事项:用于车辅夜视和高级驾驶员辅助系统(ADAS)的红外光学系统

摘要:在全球范围内,能见度差是导致交通事故的主要原因¹,尤其是在夜间以及雾、烟、暴雨和暴雪等恶劣的天气条件下。通常利用夜视系统来提高车辆和行人的安全性,尤其是在这些高难度的条件下。为这些系统开发的光学系统必须具有较高的热成像质量以及远距离物体能力,以便最大程度地减少碰撞风险并保证最佳性能。

Webinar – IR optics for drones: Where Minimal Is Critical

While drones are relatively new additions to the military’s stable of high-tech robotic systems, ground-based robots have been in use for more than a decade. From detecting, defusing, and disposing of explosives to working side-by-side with soldiers in the field, robots have found a myriad of applications within the military. In this webinar we’ll present products case-studies for the drone and UAV commercial and defense markets. The webinar highlights how robotic systems – both airborne and ground-based – are easing the risks and burdens faced by modern warfighters.

Manufacturing High-Performance Mirrors

When it comes to long-range, multispectral optical systems, large mirrors play an integral role; there are tens of thousands of optical units containing large mirrors around the globe. With minimum diameters starting at 200 mm, the largest mirrors range from 8.2 m in diameter (single mirrors) to over 10 m (segmented). They take many shapes — spherical, aspheric, parabolic, or freeform — and are used for a wide spectrum of light, including visible, UV, and IR.
