Aeronautical Optical Windows
SOREM, a branch of Wintech Groupe, was the first company in the world to offer a solution of highly resistant monoblock aeronautical optical windows for the protection of on-board cameras on civilian and military aircraft.
Specialised in industrial optics since 1953, SOREM has relied on its huge expertise and experience to design these optical windows which overcome every weakness of multi-layer optical windows.
This innovative technological solution revolutionised the aeronautical manufacturers sector to the point of replacing the multi-layer protective optical windows which, until then, were the norm.
The advantages of SOREM monoblock aeronautical protective optical windows:
- Use of a crystal which is resistant to erosion, thus preventing the optical window from freezing.
- No camera image alteration.
- Defrosting system which no longer absorbs any visible radiation.
- Suitable for use with HD and 4K cameras.
- Very high resistance to mechanical shocks.
- Unmatched durability (the oldest optical windows have not been changed after more than 30 years of service).
Nowadays our monoblock aeronautic optical windows are installed on a large number of planes such as Airbus A340-600, A380, A320, A400M, A320neo planes and Boeing 777 and 787 planes.
Monoblock protection of optical equipment
The monoblock design (with just one layer) compared to multi-layered glass optical windows, guarantees an optimal, non-altered and non-degraded image. The monoblock window is also much more resistant and shows very good results in terms of defrosting and resistance to mechanical shocks and erosion.
Thanks to a heater defrosting system, coupled with a monoblock optic, our aeronautical windows demonstrate very high performances for use with HD or 4K cameras.
The monoblock windows meet the RTCA DO-160 and MIL-STD-810 standards. They are currently used by the biggest aeronautical manufacturers (Airbus, Boeing, Dassault).
