April 23, 2013 – Santa Ana, CA – Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O -, global experts in optical manufacturing and precision thin film coatings, customizes optical solutions for shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging applications. Specially enhanced thin film optical coatings from PG&O are designed to optimize shortwave infrared imagery. Ideal for imaging through environmental conditions such as night time, fog, smoke, and water vapor, PG&O’s SWIR filters enhance performance to deliver higher quality images with greater detail than is possible without the use of optimized filters.

PG&O designs SWIR optical components to obtain the very best optical quality and imaging performance in low-light, moonlight, and starlight conditions. The company also provides high performance turnkey optical solutions for a variety of military, defense, avionics, industrial, and biomedical applications. All coatings are manufactured to MIL specifications, including metal and dielectric mirrors, beamsplitters, filters, antireflection coatings, neutral density filters, transparent electro-conductive coatings, and other hard and dense optical coatings needed for high performance and durability.

Precision Glass & Optics will be showcasing the optimized SWIR optical components at SPIE Defense, Security & Sensing, Baltimore, MD, April 29 – May 2, 2013. Please stop by PG&O’s booth # 2070 for a demonstration.
