Defence & Aerospace
For over 30 years, Knight Optical has been working closely with defence, security and aerospace companies providing optical components and solutions for advanced instrumentation. We aim to provide expert knowledge alongside quality optical components to fulfil the demanding requirements within the industry.
We regularly supply optical components such as infrared lenses for thermal imaging systems requiring transmission within the MWIR and LWIR wavebands, to graticules and objective lenses for scopes. Our wide variety of COTS optics means Knight Optical can provide a quick turnaround on commonly ordered items, however in such a demanding industry it is also vital to provide custom optical components to our customers to fulfil individual requirements – a service that Knight Optical excels at.
We regularly supply optical components for instrumentation including:
- Thermal imaging systems
- Heads-up displays
- Targeting systems
- Security cameras
- Surveillance systems
- Communication systems
