Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 17, 2023 — Syntec Optics has received two major contracts — announced less than one week apart — for objectives for night-vision scopes and for ultraprecision biomedical optics. The awards follow Syntec’s merger with special-purpose acquisition company OmniLit Acquisition Corp., which resulted in Syntec becoming a publicly traded company earlier this month.

Syntec’s contract for 10,000 objectives for night-vision scopes calls for the objectives to be delivered in 2023. The recipient of the objectives was not disclosed. Syntec Optics previously announced the launch of new lightweight eyepiece and objective lenses for night-vision goggles, called Viper, which Syntec began manufacturing in volume last month. The technology uses a hybrid glass and polymer lens architecture to allow for lightweight, high-performance imaging solutions in both defense and consumer night-vision markets.

Announced details pertaining to a second contract call for Syntec to deliver at least 20 ultraprecision biomedical optics to an undisclosed recipient in 2023, and an additional 2400 optics in early 2024.

The optical element that receives light from the object and forms the first or primary image in telescopes and microscopes. In cameras, the image produced by the objective is the final image. In telescopes and microscopes, when used visually, the image formed by the objective is magnified by an eyepiece.
Also known as ocular. The lens system used between the final real image in a visual optical system and eye. It acts as an image magnifier. Many types of eyepieces are known; e.g., the Huygens used in microscopes, the Ramsden in surveying instruments, the Kellner in prism binoculars, and the Erfle in military instruments and wide-angle binoculars.
