  • Proprietary Software

    We have established proprietary optical computer modeling software “GO” that enables rapid and accurate development of optimized complex optical constructions satisfying the requirements of MIL-STD-3009 and MIL-L-85762A.

  • Advanced Simulations

    For any given set of optical parameters, polarization, surface specular and diffuse reflection, index of refraction, chromaticity, and transmission including goniometric functions, Cevians can simulate optical component performance for any given light source.

  • Rapid Product Development

    The company leverages thousands of material characteristics, including its own photochemistry, films, polymers, EMI meshes, glasses, polarizers, and thin-film coating formulations which allows rapid product development and near-perfect first-pass yields.

  • Unrivaled Manufacturing Techniques

    Once the materials and ideal constructions are ready, manufacturing begins using techniques with decades of proven capabilities that include roll-to-roll lamination, silkscreening, film extrusion, casting, molding, thin-film coating, and optical bonding. All of the processes, from chemical synthesis and glass fabrication to optical metrology are completed at Cevians.
