Increase Demand for Custom SWIR Lenses from Manufacturers

Resolve Optics Ltd has reported increased demand for custom Short Wave Infra-Red (SWIR) lenses from manufacturers of SWIR cameras and imaging systems.

Operating from 0.9 to 1.7 microns - SWIR cameras offer unique capabilities complementary to traditional Long Wave Infra-Red (LWIR) / Mid Wave Infra-Red (MWIR) and visible cameras. As a consequence SWIR cameras are now finding widespread use in inspection, low light / night vision, fire detection (through haze, smoke and fog) as well as military (target recognition, airborne reconnaissance, remote sensing, surveillance) applications.

Despite possessing advantages 'off the shelf' infrared lenses have their limitations. To fulfil the full potential of SWIR cameras and imaging systems the need for specialist lenses which meet the exact needs of customers has risen dramatically.

Drawing upon a design team widely acknowleged as one of the best in the industry - Resolve Optics Ltd has earned a reputation for developing innovative, high performance SWIR lenses for OEM customers seeking to source no-compromise components for their camera or imaging system. With over 20 years of custom lens design and manufacture experience - Resolve Optics Ltd. is able to quickly gain an understanding of the basic physics of the challenges associated with each customer's application enabling a novel, optimised and affordable solution to be proposed and developed.

Operating from its ISO9001-2008 approved facility in Chesham, UK - Resolve Optics Ltd. develops and supplies OEM quantities of custom lens and optical systems for small and large high technology businesses. The company has the proven and rare capability to produce high performance, mounted lens systems with the look, feel and quality equivalent to the best professional photographic and broadcast TV lenses.
