    Optimised Lenses for Low Earth Orbit Satellites

Resolve Optics is a leading designer and supplier of optimised lenses for satellite developers seeking to deploy optical instruments in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) some 160 -1000 km above the Earth’s surface. Most LEO satellites are used for observation and science as being nearer the Earth’s surface allows optical instruments to take higher resolution images.

The key considerations when designing lenses for use in LEO satellites is how they react to the vibration and shock of launch, extremes of temperature and high vacuum encountered in space. For any LEO satellite mission lasting a year or more, to withstand the cumulative dose of cosmic radiation, Resolve Optics recommend that you should use radiation resistant lenses to guarantee good transmission for the entire length of the mission.
