Safran Optics 1 Features its Ultisense Line of OEM Modules at the Upcoming SPIE Defense & Commercial Sensing Exhibition

April 16-18 | Booth #736

Safran Optics 1 and affiliate Safran Vectronix are the market leaders for direction finding and laser rangefinding technology. We design and produce a wide range of high performance electro-optical systems such as laser rangefinders, visual augmentation systems, targeting systems, and digital magnetic compasses for military and civil applications. We are pleased to offer our core technology as the OEM module provider of choice for system integration into a variety of systems for military and civilian applications.

Ultisense is our brand of high performance laser rangefinder and digital magnetic compass modules which are renowned for their high grade of reliability, precision and quality. Our products set the standard for target location and observation solutions.

Safran Optics 1 Vector 21, a laser rangefinding binocular, connected to STERNA, a non-magnetic based target acquisition system. These Optics 1 products leverage Ultisense’ premier LRF, DMC and TNF modules.


LRF modules are designed and produced for a wide range of applications. The modules are lightweight and compact, without sacrificing precision range performance – the most important asset when it comes to selecting an LRF module. In addition to our range of standard products, we gladly adapt our modules to customers’ specific needs, to assist in the creation of an optimized solution.  Our modules are available in a wide range of performance levels which are ruggedized and suitable for a variety of mission applications, and are deployed today on a variety of military systems today, operating reliably in some of the world’s harshest environments.



Our Digital Magnetic Compass (DMC) line of products is highly accurate and reliable OEM solutions which have been installed in over 100,000 opto-electronic devices. Our DMCs are robust, reliable, and can be adapted for almost any application.



Many customers require accurate, non-magnetic northfinding solutions for precision targeting and navigation applications.  Our TNF-Primus is an extremely accurate and reliable autonomous True North Finding module based on advanced Hemispherical Resonator Gyro technology from Safran Electronics and Defense. It delivers high precision azimuth, elevation and bank angles even in magnetically disturbed environments without the need for GNSS. Coupled to a LRF module, it is the ideal solution for far target location.  The TNF-Primus is unrivaled in terms of size, weight, and power consumption when compared to other technologies of comparable accuracy.



Safran Optics 1 is a world leader in the development and production of low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) visual augmentation systems operating in the LWIR and SWIR bands.  We develop custom camera solutions for a number of customers with unique and challenging requirements which cannot be met by traditional COTS solutions.  For customers facing unique low-SWaP challeneges for LWIR and SWIR cameras, we offer custom solutions leveraging the experience of delivering well over 10,000 low SWaP camera cores.

From rangefinding to northfinding, and from visible to LWIR, Safran Optics 1 is a world leader in developing and delivering high-performance, rugged, and reliable solutions.  Our team of experts looks forward to the opportunity to discuss your needs and demonstrate how we can be your partner of choice for OEM precision targeting capabilities.
