During more than 60 years of bringing mission-critical defense and

aerospace programs to market, Raytheon ELCAN Optical
Technologies has developed a suite of highly efficient, vertically
integrated, precision design and manufacturing capabilities. These
capabilities include FEA (finite element analysis) predictive design
for optical assemblies.
Methods for using FEA and optical performance predictive
analysis are evolving, primarily in response to Aerospace and
defense applications (including UAS/UAV, missile, tactical and
airborne applications) where demanding needs exist. These
demanding applications require reliability, repeatability, extreme
accuracy and weight savings under conditions of temperature
swings, vibrations, shock, and pressure differentials, as well as
thermal inputs including laser.
FEA applied during the design stage can predict the physics of the
current design, under these conditions and others. These
predictions and concurrent re-design leads towards the optimal
solutions by testing components and optical performance before

manufacturing processes have been initiated, and well before
in-flight tests. By being included early in the design phase, as part
of the Integrated Product Team, Raytheon ELCAN can design high quality imaging devices, used in a wide variety of
environments and conditions. This approach shortens product deployment cycle times and produces world class,
cost-effective and advanced optical assemblies sooner.
Having all these capabilities managed by one customer-focused Integrated Product Team, Raytheon ELCAN Optical
Technologies allows the design and prototype phase to benefit from years of production and assembly experience, and the
most up to date design capabilities, including FEA predictive design for optical assemblies.
