  • The Ophir LightIR 16-180mm MWIR f/3.6 continuous zoom lens is a compact thermal imaging lens optimized for 10μm pitch VGA FPA (focal plane array) detectors.

  • The new 30-385mm and 50-700mm f/5.5 lenses enable longer detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) ranges with a compelling combination of performance, reliability and cost, specially designed for anti-drone applications and ideal for long range observation and surveillance systems with vehicle detection range capabilities exceeding 22km.

  • The compact yet powerful 680389 from Ophir is a Folded-Optics Zoom Lens that features a motorized, continuous zoom functionality. This product is designed for reduced SWaP MWIR 10μm pitch VGA detectors.

  • Ophir's family of LightIR lenses are compact yet offer high-performing features. While optimized for stabilized payloads, the 680389, 680314, and 680386 products are also suitable for a wide range of applications.

  • The SupIR 50-1350mm f/5.5 is a motorized continuous zoom lens with the longest available focal length and zoom ratio. It is designed for use in UAV payloads with its excellent detection range of more than 25 km.

  • In order to promote public health, many organizations and public venues are searching for ways to efficiently protect people from those who may have an infection. Ophir’s infrared thermal imaging lenses help provide a quick, inexpensive and non-invasive solution for surveying crowds and identifying people with elevated skin temperature who require further investigation. These thermal imaging lenses provide temperature readings of a wide audiences at the highest precision. They have been used effectively for the past two decades and were deployed successfully during the SARS and COVID-19 pandemics.

  • Ophir Optics group develops and delivers a wide range of IR complex lens assemblies with fixed, motorized focus, and zoom lenses to support UAV MWIR and LWIR imaging. These optics are designed to optimize the specific size, weight and power (SWAP) constraints of the UAV payload platforms for military, security and emerging UAV applications.

  • Automotive night vision systems and ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) that use thermal imaging allow drivers to detect pedestrians and retain a clear view of the road ahead, even when vision is obstructed by environmental conditions such as darkness, smoke, or fog. For maximum performance and minimal collision risk, these systems must achieve high accuracy and allow for long distance object detection. The key to meeting these requirements is the use of high sensitivity and high-resolution optics – such as Ophir’s athermalized lenses.

  • Ophir Optics Group delivers new optimized IR optics designs that match the needs of upcoming 10 – 12 μm uncooled detectors that must meet superior SWaP standards, enable a reduction in the size of the optical system, and provide a shorter focal length and a longer detection range.

  • The Light IR product family of lightweight zoom lenses are designed to ensure the smallest, lightest, and most compact lens solutions while achieving the highest levels of IR thermal imaging performance for cooled MWIR and uncooled LWIR cameras. They are ideally used for unmanned aerial vehicle payloads, drones, and other handheld devices.

  • Ophir Optics Group offers a family of non-ITAR MWIR f/4.0 zoom lenses with focal lengths ranging from 15 – 300 mm or 45 – 900 mm. These high-performance zoom lenses are offered with a series of extenders for superior DRI ranges, making them ideal for long range observations and surveillance system applications. The 45 – 900 mm f/4.0 zoom lenses provide the highest focal length, with a detection range of up to 24.7 km.

  • Ophir Optics Group's array of IR long-range zoom lenses offer outstanding detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) ranges ideal for commercial, surveillance, and homeland security applications. They are available for use in various FPA formats, including high-definition XGA and SXGA formats, with crisp clean images over full zoom and MTF close to the diffraction limit.
