Abstract:

Optically precise conformal sensor windows have a wide range of possible applications ranging from enhanced transparent armor to erosion resistant reconnaissance windows. These conformal surfaces often have many benefits over existing surface geometries that include reduced aerodynamic drag as well as a reduced radar cross-section. Currently the impediment to adopting these optical surfaces into existing applications is the cost and capability to manufacture these complex geometries to the desired optical requirements. OptiPro is uniquely positioned with its extensive knowledge of CAD/CAM, as well as its advanced computer numerically controlled optical grinding and polishing centers, and newly developed non-contact conformal optical metrology system to advance the manufacturing state of the art for these complex optical shapes. OptiPro"s support partnership with the MicroMechatronics gives us a strong team and a clear path towards solving the difficult problems associated with, grinding and polishing of the conformal sensor windows.
