design services - military



POE has over 30 years experience in the design of visible and infrared optical components and systems for military applications.  Applications have included optics for both cooled and uncooled sensors, as well as optics for lasers, seekers and missile systems.  Capabilities include initial concept and feasibility studies and all aspects necessary for the generation of design specifications. 


Optical design


POE has a very experienced and skilled team of optical design engineers who are able to undertake a wide range of optical studies through to producing detailed optical designs for military systems.  Extensive use is made of a large suite of optical system design and performance modelling software, including the internationally renowned CODE V as well as in-house and Zemax packages.  POE can design components such as lenses and mirrors utilising, spherical, aspheric and diffractive surfaces. 


Opto-mechanical design


POE also has an experienced team of opto-mechanical design engineers who are fully conversant with all aspects of the most up-to-date CAD/CAM techniques. This ensures all our optical components and systems are housed in mechanically suitable housings able to withstand the harshest environments such optical systems are likely to encounter in military operations.
