Optics and high-quality imaging lenses are at the heart of aerospace applications, from deep space imaging through to optical telecommunications.

Lenses are used to monitor the performance of drones, satellites and engines. Industrial lenses are crucial to the monitoring and control of aircraft and rocket engines. These specialized lenses are designed to withstand harsh conditions and provide vital visual information for performance analysis, safety assurance and maintenance. In aircraft engine monitoring, industrial lenses allow real-time observation of critical components, helping to detect wear, damage and anomalies. High-quality images enable post-flight analysis and performance evaluation.

Aircraft Applications

Specialised optical solutions also play a vital role in helping to deliver the applications which aircraft are used for. For example, many aircraft carry sensors that are used for a wide range of emission-specific applications, such as detecting forest fires, monitoring forestation or crop development and tracking changes in climate.

As issues such as climate change and extreme weather rise up the agenda, applications of this kind are likely to become increasingly important.

To deliver precise results within highly specific bandwidths, theoptical lenses, mirrors andfilters used in sensors of this kind need to be selected to measure across certain wavelengths while eliminating other wavelengths entirely.

This can be achieved by utilising the kind of specialist solutions manufactured and supplied by GlasOptics, which include the following:
