Nov 2010
ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 9, 2010 — Optical products manufacturer LightPath Technologies Inc. announced that it signed a supply agreement with an unnamed manufacturer of commercial and industrial vision systems, including infrared cameras used in the military, government, commercial and industrial sectors.

The supply agreement is an extension of an existing business relationship between the two companies.

“This expanded relationship solidifies the importance and growing market adoption of our molded infrared optical assemblies by industry leading manufacturers,” said Jim Gaynor, CEO of the company. “By using glass molding, we are able to reduce overall system cost and increase production volumes for many products, including infrared optics and thermal imaging cameras.”

The supply agreement enables the company to capitalize on significant sales opportunities in the thermal imaging and thermography markets, he said.

GLOSSARY
camera
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...
thermal imaging
The process of producing a visible two-dimensional image of a scene that is dependent on differences in thermal or infrared radiation from the scene reaching the aperture of the imaging device.
thermography
The recording of a scanned pattern on a photographic medium, utilizing the infrared radiation naturally emitted by the object, as well as infrared receptors, such as photoelectric cells.
