Defense & Security

Spectral imaging for defense applications is a function of high resolution (both spatial and spectral), high signal-to-noise, low stray light, and a wide field of view. Headwall's hyperspectral imaging sensors deliver on all four thanks to its focus on diffractive optics, precisely engineered by Headwall.

An Experienced Partner

Headwall Photonics has been active in working with many federal agencies, prime contractors, and system integrators to design, manufacture, and deploy advanced, high performance spectral imaging and other optical solutions for both civilian and military agencies. With successful experience working with such organizations as NASA, Naval Research Labs, and US Army NVESD, Headwall has developed spectral solutions specifically designed for imaging in harsh environments.

These military/defense departments and civilian agencies have deployed products ranging from customized holographic gratings with requirements for high environmental stability and small form factor to very sophisticated hyperspectral imaging solutions based on Headwall's patented, aberration-corrected platform.

Headwall Photonics has a Trading Partner Profile (TPP) listed In the Defense Logistics Agency's Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database. Our commercial and government entity (CAGE) code is 3G2V7.

Headwall is also an active participant in the Federal government's SBIR/STTR programs for DoD and Homeland Security project opportunities as well as the Electro-Optics Alliance, a national resource center partnering with the government.
