Long-range MWIR, LWIR & SWIR zoom lenses

With detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) ranges of up to 28 km, our long-range zoom lenses are ideal for ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) applications on land, at sea and in the air, as well as security and counter-drone systems.

The rugged lenses have been engineered for superior performance even under the harshest battlefield conditions, and feature accurate line-of-sight (LOS) performance and MTF close to the diffraction limit.
