Navitar OptiStar® Lenses are designed specifically to meet the latest advancements in SWIR technology. Their new rugged design offers superior image quality, better transmission and performance from the visible spectrum into the shortwave infrared region. OptiStar lenses function in the wavelengths of 500nm - 1700nm, with 90% +/- 5% transmission across the range. The lenses are available with manual or auto iris.
Our OptiStar lenses were designed through a collaborative effort between Navitar and SWIR camera makers. This allowed us to create a multifaceted lens line that can be incorporated into an array of cameras, suitable for a vast number of SWIR applications.
What makes the OptiStar unique from Navitar's standard SWIR lens line?
|• Lower f/# and enhanced design for better performance in dark environments.
|• Higher transmission over a larger wavelength range (500 nm - 1700 nm).
|• Higher resolution in low light applications.
Navitar’s OptiStar lenses are capable of offering high resolution images in conditions ranging from bright day light, fog/haze, twilight and dusk. The lenses are ideal for a variety of imaging applications where SWIR cameras are employed such as perimeter surveillance, toll-way monitoring, border and port security, quality control or aerial imaging.
