Meller Introduces Sapphire Windows for UAVs

Meller Optics has introduced custom fabricated sapphire windows that are said they can withstand extreme pressures and the rigors of harsh subsea applications while providing optimum visibility.

Meller Sapphire Windows are ideal for autonomous underwater vehicle (UAV) applications requiring a clear, hard optical material that can withstand high pressures to 10,000 psi and resist salt water, chemicals and fast moving particles, the company noted.

Featuring Mohs 9 hardness which is second only to diamond, they can be manufactured to specification in a wide range of sizes with varying thicknesses, mounting profiles, steps, and edge treatments to assure a reliable fit and seal, Meller Optics added.
