Seminole, FL—Salvo Coatings, a member of the Salvo Technologies Inc. group of companies, is pleased to announce that it now offers coatings specifically tuned for the Short Wave Infrared or SWIR region with extension into the visible spectra. An often overlooked area, the SWIR region typically allows for greater contextual detail but with equivalent low light performance when compared to intensifier tubes. As these InGaAs focal plane arrays get more advanced they now have efficient light collection well into the visible. This creates the need for ultra-wide broadband coatings to allow light collection from the visible through the SWIR.
“Although we have previously created SWIR tuned filters the demands on the coatings have become much greater with the advent of the Vis/SWIR cameras” said Patrick Kelly, vice president of technology at Salvo Technologies. “We have worked with our partners to come up with some very unique solutions for this type of product. Lens systems utilizing these coatings have been shown to have greater than 80% on axis transmission which is an impressive accomplishment through both regions.”
Customers can now purchase lens components or complete lens systems with this coating through Salvo EO or Salvo Defense. In addition Salvo Defense is offering custom lens design services that allow customers the option of simply specifying the optic that is needed and the team will design, prototype and manufacture these lenses to those specifications.
