Resolve Optics Ltd (Chesham, UK) has produced ruggedized lenses to meet specified environmental tests such as Def Stan 00-35, which includes vibration, shock, and bump testing over a temperature range of -40° to +70° C. Lens optical coatings can be applied to meet a range of MIL Spec standards (including MIL-C-14806, MIL-C-675, MIL-M-13508) to ensure the coatings do not craze, peel, or succumb to fungal attack. To minimize the risk of condensation, the lenses are assembled in a dry nitrogen atmosphere.
