UAV Optic Enable Smaller Drones

UAV Optic Enable Smaller Drones
MELLER OPTICS INC.

Suitable for use in ever-shrinking drones and tiny flying robots, the company’s custom-fabricated UAV optics are made from sapphire for demanding applications or zinc selenide for less formidable designs. They feature round sapphire lenses from 0.25” up and partial spheres as small as 0.12” with varying focal lengths. Available with A/R coatings for the visible to 10.6 microns, the sapphire optics are second only to diamond in terms of hardness for demanding applications. UAV Optics are also offered made from zinc selenide (ZnSe) from 0.25” up. Developed for OEMs, the components can incorporate stepped edges and other special characteristics for mounting such as slots or wedges. Flatness can be held to 1/10th wave per inch in the visible with surface finishes from 60-40 to 40-20 scratch-dig.
