Ophir provides cradle to grave innovative, advanced lidar solutions that improve flight safety and situational awareness. Our mission critical avionics sensors deliver flight measurements and navigation in a degraded visual environment, as well as enhanced survivability on aircraft that are among the most treasured national defense assets.
Ophir maintains the skillsets, tools, and facilities suitable for all aspects of electro-optical design, fabrication, assembly, test, maintenance, repair, and logistics support. Over our broad corporate history of atmospheric characterization, Ophir has developed a wide range of sensors with mission critical capabilities and novel applications for numerous national asset aircraft and programs.
LASER RADAR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Ophir has extensive expertise designing, qualifying, manufacturing and maintaining laser-based radar for commercial and military applications. With over 30 years of experience developing and manufacturing laser radar, Ophir creates sensors that are affordable, small in size, weight and power, and are easy to field.
MANUFACTURING SENSORS FOR CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENTS
Ophir understands how to manufacture small, robust laser radar for harsh environments. The Pilot Alert System, manufactured and maintained by Ophir, is mission critical onboard every B-2 Block 30 Bomber aircraft.
We design, manufacture, and maintain flight-qualified avionics compliant with AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management Systems. We conduct MIL-STD-810 environmental testing, design and compliance test for Electro-Magnetic Interference Compatibility (EMIC), conduct complex optical alignments, and test for performance over extended temperature ranges. Ophir has qualified products to over 24 Gs of random vibration for complex electro-optical, laser radar assemblies.
Ophir has extensive experience over the past 30 years flight-testing and fielding lidar sensors and technologies. Our systems have been demonstrated in- flight as standard avionics sensors on a variety of platforms, including T-33, NASA F-18 Systems Research Aircraft, B-2 Bomber, King Air, Cessna Citation, LearJet, Boeing Flight Test Aircraft, KC-135, NASA Dassault Falcon, Gulfstream Gll, and Alpha Jet aircraft. Most recently, Ophir has conducted several tests of the Transonic Air Data System on F-16 Falcon multirole fighters.
