Resolve Inks HUD Camera Supply Deal with Sekai
CHESHAM, UK, April 6, 2010 — Resolve Optics Ltd. announced it has received a contract to supply Sekai Electronics Inc. of La Mirada, Calif., with an optimized second generation version of the miniature varifocal zoom lens developed for their RSC-384-XX series head-up display camera.
The US company’s high resolution color remote head cameras benefit from a compact variable field-of-view lens with motorized iris, specifically developed for harsh environments and applications where an optimal field of view is required, said the company.
Developed in conjunction with the UK-based company, the variable field-of-view lens offers easy installation without expensive modifications of the aircraft. According to the company, its motorized iris is suitable for wide light level changes encountered in the air and it captures the HUD symbology with the interference seen with CCD iris.
Sekai Electronics is a provider of video products and systems for new and “retrofit” programs on military and commercial aircraft, RPVs and helicopters.
Resolve Optics designs and manufactures lenses and optical products, including OEM lenses for customers seeking to source optimized components for camera, sensor or instruments system integration.

- A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
- The adjustable membrane located just in front of the crystalline lens within the eye. The iris gives the eye its color. See also iris diaphragm.
- A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
