Theia Lens Technology

Boldly Goes...

  Theia's patented Linear Optical Technology was used to manufacture lenses that were launched into space December 3, 2014 aboard Hayabusa 2, a Japanese asteroid explorer.   Theia provided a special license to its ultra wide no distortion lens technology to Nittoh Kogaku K.K. to manufacture the compact, light-weight lenses.  The lenses will equip Minerva II a planetary exploration rover to capture images of the planet 1999 JU3.  Stay tuned - images are expected in 4 years!

 Fighter Pilot for a Day
 Air Combat USA used Theia's ultra wide angle, low distortion lenses on Toshiba IK-HR1H HD cameras to film this video footage.  They operated the aircraft at up to 6 Gs acceleration, speeds of up to 270 mph and at altitudes up to 10,000 feet.  Cameras were mounted in the cockpit as well as on external stores mounts on the wings.  They used a selection of Theia's robust, machine vision, C mount lenses to capture the thrill including aerobatic maneuvers.   Check out how it feels to be a Fighter Pilot for a Day!

 Theia eyes prize in AUVSI RoboSub Competition

 The Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV) team won the 17th Annual International RoboSub Competition with the help of Theia's wide angle lenses.  Their latest vehicle, Gemini, uses two forward-facing Allied Vision Technologies Guppy F-080C cameras each with Theia's   SY125M Ultra-Wide Manual Iris lens that provide a wide field of view in front of the AUV which enables a stereovision system used to determine distances to objects.  For more information email us at
