Aerospace and Defense Optics and Optical Systems for Mission-Critical Applications

In harsh aerospace and defense environments there are no second chances. Mission-critical technology demands uncompromising precision, absolute reliability, and close partnerships with suppliers. For more than seven decades, G&H has delivered proven optical solutions for aerospace, avionics, and defense platforms, including ruggedized commercial photonic components, build-to print-products, and full-scale development of customized solutions.

我们被认可为我们的广度声光,electro-optic,水晶光学,fiber optic, 和精密光学器products. Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, however, represent only part of G&H’s capabilities. Our engineers bring decades of experience working closely with program managers at prime aerospace and defense suppliers. We are able to take on projects at any stage of development and apply rigorous contract discipline and life-cycle management practices to help ensure optimal earned value for your program.

Our leadership in supporting mission-critical applications with high-performance optical components, modules, and subassemblies has established G&H as a preferred supplier for leading aerospace and defense contractors around the globe. Our technology and expertise in optical design and manufacture have helped advance programs and missions in several key application areas.


Imaging Optics




Target Designation and Rangefinder Optics

Target designation and rangefinding tasks necessitate uncompromising accuracy and reliability under the most demanding conditions, whether they involve an integrated warfighter operating in the fog of battle or a missile targeting system with milliseconds to lock onto a target. The optical coatings and opto-mechanical lens assemblies produced by G&H not only ensure consistently reliable performance for these aerospace and defense systems but can also help reduce size, weight, and power demands to support greater portability and wider deployment.
