Excelitas Launches Mamba40 Lightweight Optics for NVG

High-Performance Optics for Critical Surveillance Operations

Excelitas Technologies revealed its Mamba40 lightweight optics for night vision goggles on 29 September. The high-performance optics are ideally suited to border surveillance, law enforcement, marine and naval surveillance, as well as tactical professionals and first responders.

Mamba40 offers high performance in a lightweight form, with 72lp/mm resolution and distortion below 6%, a crisp 26mm f/1.2 focal length and excellent 40° field of vision that aids situational awareness. The ITAR-free Mamba40 can be used in monocular or binocular low-light environments.

The objective and eyepiece are designed to work together when used in an application with the latest generation of high-resolution image tubes. The objective offers a spectral range of 600-900nm, 92% transmission and a 35g weight. The eyepiece has a spectral range of 420-620 nm, 85% transmission and is 25g in weight. The optics are compatible with an 18mm image intensifier tube.

Mamba40’s viewing angle and bright optics are well suited for aviation, close-quarter engagement, and ISR applications. Configurations can also be customised to meet specific customer needs.

The optical system is designed to operate from -40oC/+55oC, can be stored at temperatures from -51oC/71oC, can withstand 5-55Hz vibration and forces up to 2.5 gravities. Mechanical shock is rated at 40g/ms, and sealing is IP658.

Our expertise in developing cutting-edge optics for a wide range of advanced applications informed the Mamba40 design. Its high-performance specifications are specifically meant to maximise professional users’ awareness of critical situations around them, helping keep them safe,” observed Brad Tan, Excelitas’ Business Development Manager.
