Contract win for HUD lenses

Share this on social media:

Resolve Optics has won a contract to supply Sekai Electronics with an optimised second generation version of the miniature varifocal zoom lens developed for its RSC-384-XX series head-up display (HUD) camera.

Sekai RSC-384-XX series HUD cameras are ruggedised high resolution colour remote head cameras that benefit from a compact variable field-of-view lens with motorised iris, specifically developed for harsh environments and applications where an optimal field of view is required. The variable field-of-view lens, developed in conjunction with Resolve Optics, makes installations an easy task without expensive modifications of the aircraft. The motorised iris lens is ideal for wide light level changes encountered in the air and captures the HUD symbology without the interference seen with CCD iris.

The new miniature varifocal zoom lens delivers the high performance, ruggedness, flexibility and compactness required of a HUD camera designed to fit in a wide range of aircraft without modification therefore providing significant cost of ownership benefits. The varifocal zoom lens provides variable field-of-view delivering optimised focusing on objects from infinity right down to an object placed just 35mm from the lens. The varifocal zoom lens was built to withstand the high levels of vibration, shock and electromagnetic interference static typically found in aircraft.
