In light of recent mergers and acquisitions in the defense industry, Navitar, a leading manufacturer of precision optical systems, stands ready to assist defense contractors and others in need of an independent optical solutions provider.
“On occasion, mergers and acquisitions within an industry cause one time suppliers to become direct competitors overnight,” comments Jeremy Goldstein, Co-President of Navitar. “Navitar’s independence as a precision optical supplier has served us well over the years. Today, Navitar and its Special Optics division are highly regarded for our precision optical and electro-optical systems - which are widely used for military, defense and homeland security applications”.
Since the purchase of the Wharton, New Jersey based Special Optics back in February 2008, Navitar has expanded its customer relationships with defense contractors such as BAE, Rockwell Collins, and FLIR, to name a few. Whether looking for a custom lens design or standard optics, these companies choose Navitar for quality products, exceptional service and support, years of experience, and competitive pricing.
Navitar’s custom, precision optics and electro-optical solutions are used for long range surveillance, infrared imaging, unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, missile tracking, weapons testing, homeland security and defense applications. Products include the Metric Zoom ultra-long range surveillance lens, SWIR hyperspectral lenses, low magnification NMV video lenses, and custom optical systems.
“We provide state-of-the-art optical solutions for the most demanding applications that require the utmost accuracy, tightest tolerances and finest optical materials. We work closely with our customers to help them solve their most challenging problems”, Mr. Goldstein remarks. “Navitar is one of the few lens companies that can seamlessly integrate optical and mechanical engineering, rapid prototyping and volume custom lens production. We are happy to assist defense contractors and others in need of these solutions”.
