Meniscus Lens

KNT work in partnership with Obducat in development of pseudo-Mangin Mirror seeker for MBDA. This project was funded through the MCM-IP (Materials & Components for Missiles Innovation & Technology Partnership). The system features a tri-pole pattern for RF and menicus lens with rear metal coating for IR signals.

The fabrication process includes the production of nickel stamps, nanoimprint lithography on to a curved surface, electroforming of a tri-pole pattern and a metal rear coating to form a pseudo-Mangin mirror.
