Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®), global manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, announces plans to showcase specialized optical thin films for unmanned aircraft systems at AUVSI, Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D. C. August 13 – 15, 2013 in booth # 3053.
Extremely durable optical coatings include anti-reflection, infrared thin film coatings, dark mirrors, patterned optical filters, advanced multispectral optical filter assemblies, dielectric, multilayer, and dichroic filters. DSI’s rugged optical thin films are ideal for unmanned systems and advanced military and defense applications such as night vision, display, large optics, thermal imaging, CCDs, telescope optics, and more.
High performance, specialized filters from DSI can be applied to complex shapes and sizes and to a wide variety of substrates, including metal, glass, ceramics, plastics, and active-device silicon wafers. DSI is an accredited facility and has in place the infrastructure to support government and aerospace contracts. ITAR registered and ISO 9001:2008 compliant, DSI’s highly durable optical filters provide zero-shift capabilities in the ultraviolet (UV), visible, near-infrared (NIR), shortwave infrared (SWIR), midwave-IR (MWIR), longwave IR (LWIR) and very longwave IR (VLWIR). Ideal for high thermal loads and high thermal shock, coatings are tested to MIL-C-48497 and MIL-F-48616 standards for humidity, salt fog, abrasion, temperature cycle, adhesion, solubility, and cleanability.
For over 25 years, Deposition Sciences has produced the most durable optical thin film filter coatings in the industry. DSI’s coating capability ranges from the ultraviolet (UV), through the visible and includes near-infrared (NIR), midwave-infrared (MWIR) and out to the longwave-infrared (LWIR). At the heart of these coating capabilities for optics and other thin film technologies are DSI’s patented MicroDyn® reactive sputtering technology enabling superior multilayer thin film coatings, and the company’s IsoDyn™ LPCVD method that permits exceptionally conformal optical coatings on complex shapes and sizes.
