A line of multiband, multispectral antireflective and filter coatings enables next-generation technologies, such as hyperspectral image fusion, multispectral single-aperture optical systems, and spectral gas analysis. Single apertures for multiple wavelengths enable lighter, smaller optics for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and other weight- and size-limited applications. Image fusion reduces the occurrence of false positives in surveillance and target acquisition. Coatings meet requirements for screening and transmitting wavelengths that are far apart from each other in the spectral range. The design and production process reduces the coating’s stress, and meets durability and adhesion per MIL-C-48497.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE

Jenoptik Introduces New Multispectral Coatings

A new product line of multiband, multispectral antireflective and filters coatings of Jenoptik's Optical Systems division are being introduced at SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing exhibition in Orlando. These coatings are an enabling technology for the next generation of thermographic applications.

Emerging technologies, such as hyperspectral image fusion, multispectral single aperture optical systems and spectral gas analysis, require high performance coatings that maximize system sensitivity and performance. The use of single apertures for multiple wavelengths enables lighter, smaller optical solutions for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle) and other weight and size limited applications. Multispectral image fusion reduces the occurrence of false positives in surveillance and target acquisition applications.

The new multispectral AR and filter coatings have been designed by Jenoptik to meet future
customer requirements for screening and transmitting wavelengths that are far apart from each other in the spectral range. The design and production process significantly reduces the coating’s stress, and meets durability and adhesion per MIL-C-48497. Components and coatings of this new product line can be produced in a wide range of varieties tailored to the specific requirements of customers.

Jenoptik is consistently strengthening its infrared business for the US Defense & Security market. With its three US manufacturing locations and its headquarters in Jena, Germany, Jenoptik Optical Systems designs, fabricates, assembles, and tests custom lens components and assemblies, from the Deep UV to the Far IR. In 2010 Jenoptik launched a new program dedicated to expanding Jenoptik’s presence in the US IR Defence and Security markets and installed diamond turning optical manufacturing in the Jupiter, FL facility to complement existing capabilities in the US and worldwide. Future expansion of activities and technological capabilities are planned.
