Public Profile

Surface Optics Corporation is involved in R&D on the characterization and exploitation of the optical properties of surfaces. The firm develops instruments for initial measurement, analysis, coating, and deployment applications that support monitoring and control. It offers spectral imaging products, such as staring real-time video-rate spectral cameras, and scanning laboratory and field portable spectral cameras; field portable hand-held and laboratory grade reflectometers and emissometers; thin film coatings; and measurement services, including hemispheric (HDR) or directional reflectance, and transmittance measurements as a function of wavelength and incident angle, as well as bidirectional reflectance (BRDF) or scatter measurements from the ultraviolet to LWIR. The company also provides ENSIR (ENSembleIR), an infrared (IR) target and cultural feature signature analysis software; ImageMapper, a material classification software for sensor simulation; RadBase software for generating RCS, and amptitude and phase data; ScatCad to calculate generalized light scattering from coatings and surfaces; an optical properties database with HDR and BRDF data for various materials; and spectral imaging/hyperspectral, reflectometer, coatings, and measurement services and support. In addition, Surface Optics Corporation offers analytical software for exploiting the measurement data for various practical engineering applications, including optical constant determination, optical phenomenology of composite materials, coatings design, and thermal analysis, as well as visible, infrared, and radar signature simulation. The company serves forestry, mining, oceanography, aerospace, military, energy and solar power, home and building, life science, agriculture, optical component fabricators, remote sensing, astronomy, pharmaceutical, and machine vision markets, as well as the Department of Homeland Security DHS and ICE worldwide.
