LightPath Completes SBIR Phase II Navy Contract
Sep 2010
ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 24, 2010 — LightPath Technologies Inc., an optical components and assemblies manufacturer, announced that it has completed a $750,000 Phase II SBIR contract award from the US Navy, under the direction of the Air Force Research Laboratory.

The contract created a platform for the company to develop large diameter molded infrared aspheric lenses. LightPath currently sells the lenses and thermal imaging assemblies as part of the larger thermal imaging, thermography and gas sensing markets.

“LightPath has enjoyed collaborating with the US Navy and Air Force to develop new technologies for molding infrared lenses,” said Jim Gaynor, CEO. “Completion of this SBIR contract has enabled LightPath to not only bring low cost, molded infrared optics to the defense market, but also bring to market high volume infrared lenses for commercial OEM applications.”

Not spherical; an optical element having one or more surfaces that are not spherical. The spherical surface of a lens may be slightly altered so as to reduce spherical aberration. Aspheric surfaces are frequently, but not necessarily, surfaces of revolution about the lens axis.
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.
