Optics For Smallsats
Designing optics for micro- and nanosatellites. The smallsat market has seen significant growth in the past few years driven by a desire to reduce satellite costs and the increasing availability of miniaturized technologies.

Ruggedised lenses for operating in harsh environments
In recent years – Resolve Optics has developed several ruggedised lenses for material sorting applications where the lenses must routinely withstand constant vibration and airborne particulates. In the Nuclear industry we are a leading supplier of radiation resistant fixed focus and zoom lens for remote inspection of power plant and reprocessing areas.
Space – The Final Frontier
Many different types of optical imaging and sensing systems are used to observe and measure the Earth and the Universe at large. However, 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.

Sensor Resolution Versus Lens Resolution
This informative new white paper from Resolve Optics addresses the often misunderstood considerations when selecting an optimum lens for your digital camera or sensor. The ability of a lens to resolve detail is usually determined by the quality of the lens but is ultimately limited by diffraction. It is commonly thought that the resolution of a lens should match or exceed the Nyquist resolution of the sensor that it has been selected to work with, in order to achieve optimum performance. This is a common misconception.
Are off-the-shelf optics always the best solution?
Resolve Optics has published a new white paper that compares the benefits to organisations of sourcing ‘off-the-shelf’ lenses with specialist lenses that meet the exact needs of their application.
The Importance of correctly specifying your lens systems
Lenses are arguably the most important part of your camera, sensor or optical instrument set-up, they make or break your image quality. They control the image that’s projected onto your imaging sensor, and ultimately the quality of the results your camera, sensor or optical instrument produces.
