Spectral Imaging for Industrial Flare Monitoring

Direct measurement of flare combustion efficiency has been a long-standing technological challenge. Our multispectral infrared imager delivers real-time continuous flare monitoring and optimization potential.

Multispectral Technology Advancement Industry Day

Surface Optics Corporation's newest multispectral technology was demonstrated by the Department of the Army at October's Hyper Spectral/Multi Spectral Technology Advancement Industry Day at Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey.

Thermal Control Coating for NASA'S InSIGHT SPACECRAFT

Surface Optics Corporation (SOC) has been contracted to supply a thermal control coating to NASA's InSight Mars Lander, scheduled for launch in May 2018.
