Optics Improvements Prompt Enhanced Component Parameters

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Better sensors capturing more wavelengths are enabling defense and security systems to identify threats at greater distances. To keep up with improvements, optical components must also evolve.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

For defense and security applications, size matters. So do weight, power, and cost. These four parameters are often referred to as SWaP-C, a key concept that drives the manufacture of defense and security systems, sensors, and optical components. For the last, vendors are turning away from traditional solutions and toward novel ones. Above, Advancements in optical components, sensors, and systems make it possible to observe and locate targets under conditions of poor visibility.
