A new extra lightweight, 180-degree field-of-view (FOV) F/1.4, high definition fisheye lens for use in both commercial and defense applications has been released by Ophir Optics (Jerusalem, Israel). The new lens is compatible with both HD and VGA format for both 17 and 12m pitch FPAs of leading uncooled detector manufacturers. Designed to improve the existing 60- , 90- and 120-degree FOV lenses presently used, this lens weighs just 90 grams and can operate in extreme temperature ranges. The external optical surface is coated with (optional) high durability coating or Low Reflection Hard Carbon coating to provide durability in harsh environmental conditions.
