Custom Optics Manufacturer Acquired By Teledyne

Teledyne TSS (International) Ltd. : 09 June, 2010  (Company News)
Teledyne subsidiary purchases Optimum Optical Systems bring key skills and technology for defence imaging applications using infrared technology to the company’s portfolio
Teledyne Scientific & Imaging has acquired Optimum Optical Systems. Optimum Optical, located in Camarillo, California, is a designer and manufacturer of custom optics and optomechanical assemblies. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Optimum Optical manufactures custom lenses and optomechanical assemblies for the infrared, visible and ultraviolet spectrums. Optimum Optical’s products are primarily used in tactical military imaging systems found on a variety of defence platforms, including a number of small UAV systems. Following the acquisition, Optimum Optical Systems will change its name to Teledyne Optimum Optical Systems.

“The acquisition of Optimum Optical further expands Teledyne’s capabilities and product offerings in tactical infrared imaging systems,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “Specifically, Optimum Optical’s capabilities in lens and optomechanical systems are strategically positioned between the focal plane array, detector subsystem and camera products of Teledyne Imaging Sensors and Teledyne Judson Technologies, and the complete inertially-stabilized gimbal systems designed and manufactured by Optical Alchemy, Inc., in which we acquired a minority interest in March 2010.”
