The company's impressive array of advanced optical systems are currently deployed across a host of mission-critical applications within our defense network. Our applications include infrared search and track, missile warning systems, missile launch detection systems, advanced infra-red targeting systems, and visible imaging systems.

II-VI Optical Systems' optical components and assemblies are on the F-14 Tomcat, the F-15 Eagle, the F-22 Raptor, and the Apache Helicopter. We are also developing new applications for the F-18 Super Hornet, the Future Combat System, and other emerging Defense and Homeland Security systems.

To ensure that we quickly solve specific design or fabrication challenges, we assign a specialized, responsive, Integrated Product Team to every customer's project.
