This new, high precision lens is equipped with an automated zoom interface and continuous zoom to provide a sharp and clear image across the entire field-of-view and throughout the full zoom range. This makes it ideal for the demanding requirements of Counter Unmanned Systems (C-UAS) applications and long range observation and surveillance systems.

"The SupIR 60-1200 mm MWIR f/4 lens is a game changer for homeland security and defense applications," said Dr. Kobi Lasri, General Manager, Ophir Optics Group. "The extended observation range, high performance continuous zoom capabilities, and ruggedized design allow for early and accurate identification and tracking of fast-moving targets without losing sight."

The Ophir SupIR 60-1200 mm f/4 has a horizontal field-of-view (H-FOV) of 0.3°-8.6°. It is the newest addition to the SupIR SXGA/HD 10 µm detectors compatible series of lenses which are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, providing an operating temperature range from -32 ºC to +85 ºC. These lenses features Ophir's world-renowned abrasion-resistant, anti-reflective (AR) coatings; IP 67 sealing; and a mechanical design that withstands severe shock and vibration. They are designed for ease of mechanical and electronic integration using Ophir's standard software for optimal integration, calibration, and field operation. In addition, the lenses are equipped with zoom controller features for continuous zoom with focus retention, automatic focus compensation throughout temperature and zoom ranges, close objects focus mode, focus blurring for NUC calculation, and full manual and automatic control of zoom and focus positions.
