SCHOTT’s portfolio of Flexible Imaging Bundles provide an optical channel to observe locations from a remote position, either mounted or dismounted. This is vital in defense operations where situational awareness is key. Our image guides enable remote passive viewing or, when incorporated with a camera system, the creation of digital images.
