Designing optical systems for space projects

Over the last 20+ years Resolve Optics has worked with the leading international space agencies and satellite development companies in North America and Europe to develop and deliver high performance optical systems that reliably perform the function they were designed. 
Designing optical systems for satellites and spacecraft is challenging due to the harsh conditions that space places upon components and systems working in this remote environment.

• Strong electromagnetic radiation
• High vacuum
• Zero gravity
• Large temperature gradients
• Size and weight

When designing for a space application probably a key consideration is the life of the application or how long is the optical system required to work for. The longer the optical system is in orbit the greater the exposure to electromagnetic radiation thereby increasing the criticality of only using optical components and structural materials that are radiation resistant. All optical elements within Resolve Optics space lens designs are made using cerium oxide doped glass or synthetic silica enabling them to withstand radiation doses of up to 100,000,000 rads and temperatures up to 55°C without discoloration or degradation of performance.
