OptiStar lenses

Share this on social media:

Navitar, a manufacturer of precision optical and electro-optic systems, has introduced OptiStar lenses designed and optimised specifically to meet the latest advancements in SWIR technology.

The rugged design offers high image quality, transmission and performance from the visible spectrum into the shortwave infrared region. OptiStar lenses function in the wavelengths of 500-1,700nm, with 90 per cent (+/-5 per cent) transmission across the range. Superseding Navitar's standard SWIR lenses, OptiStar lenses have a lower F/# and enhanced design that will depict better images in dark or night time environments. Both lenses are available with manual or auto iris.

Navitar SWIR hyperspectral lenses are ideal for a variety of imaging applications, such as perimeter surveillance, toll-way monitoring, border and port security, quality control or aerial imaging.
