[SatNews] Resolve Optics Ltd. has supplied a number of non-browning zoom lens to the Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office (SSCO) at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA.
Mark Pontin, Managing Director of Resolve Optics, said, “Space borne applications present a challenging environment, subject to radiation, where camera lens servicing or replacement is highly undesirable. NASA sought a proven supplier of high performance, radiation tolerant zoom lenses and selected Resolve Optics because of our expertise in the area and willingness to work with them on adapting our 3x and 6x non- browning zoom lens designs to be ‘space ready’.”
Drawing upon more than 20 years experience, Resolve Optics has built a strong reputation for specialist lens design and manufacture of smaller production quantities of radiation-resistant lenses and optical products on time to strict quality and target price guidelines. All optical elements within Resolve Optics radiation tolerant lens designs are made using cerium oxide doped glass or synthetic silica enabling them to withstand radiation doses of up to 100,000,000 rads and temperatures up to 55 degrees Celcius without discoloration or degradation of performance. All Resolve Optics non browning lenses provide high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750nm.
