Complex Optical System Design


Complex Optical System Design – Salvo Defense is a go-to designer of optical systems including standard products such as eyepieces, objective lenses, and zoom assemblies as well as more complex systems such as application-specific sensing and imaging products.  The engineering team at Salvo Defense can re-optimize existing designs as well as create new designs from specifications as simple as a napkin sketch.  By combining best practices from multiple disciplines Salvo Defense not only creates designs that meet the rigorous requirements of the defense industry but also creates designs that are manufacturable.  This small but unique difference is what separates Salvo Defense from its competitors.  By leveraging its sister company, Salvo Electro-Optics, Salvo Defense can utilize the latest manufacturing capabilities and design for manufacturing from the start.  This reduces the lead time from idea to product realization by eliminating multiple rounds of prototyping due to lack of manufacturing experience.

Established in 2012, Salvo Defense is a full-service contract designer and manufacturer of electro-optical assemblies as well as sensing and imaging platforms with a specialization in multispectral systems.  The company manufactures high-end equipment and gear for military and police forces.  It emphasizes innovative materials and designs that solve problems others can’t.  As the design and R&D arm of the Salvo Technologies Inc family of companies, Salvo Defense can leverage the production capabilities of its sister organizations like Salvo Coatings and Salvo Electro-Optics.  It can also tap the sales organizations of the other business units to conceptualize new products and reach customers globally through their distribution.
