Stinger Objective Lens

APPLICATION:

Optics used in the US Army’s Stinger Missile.

CHALLENGE:

To produce a robust fixed focus lens that requires a very precise alignment of the front optical element. Once designed, the lens had to be manufactured from initial prototypes to high throughput in the production stage.

SOLUTION:

Durability:The lens had a very durable and ruggedized design.
Capablility::The US Army determined after an exhaustive search of domestic companies that COI was the only company capable of properly and precisely aligning the front optical element of the assembly.
Production:After an initial prototype run, hundreds of lenses were delivered over the history of the program.
