Hubble Space Telescope Servicing In Orbit Monitored By Three Schneider Lenses

Standard Compact C-mount Schneider Xenoplan and Cinegon lenses on the Space Shuttle delivered high-resolution video

Van Nuys, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2009 -- Schneider Optics, a worldwide market leader in high-quality lenses for industrial applications, has just announced that their Schneider C-mount Xenoplan and Cinegon lenses were selected by NASA to play an important role in the recent servicing in orbit of the Hubble Space Telescope.

According to NASA, "the quality and robustness of Schneider lenses were decisive for the space mission." During the rendezvous between the shuttle Atlantis and the Hubble Space Telescope, and thereafter, while seven astronauts replaced six gyroscopes, batteries, and a sensor used to guide the telescope, the Schneider lenses were the eyes of the cameras that delivered high resolution images to the shuttle and to engineers on earth.

"We are especially pleased to have had standard Schneider lenses chosen for this important mission, as it illustrates their highly robust quality as well as their incredible high-resolution capabilities." said Schneider Vice President, Stuart Singer. "Everyone at Schneider is thrilled to have made a contribution to the historic in-space service mission that is likely to enable the Hubble Space Telescope to continue functioning until at least 2014."

Mounted in the shuttle's payload bay, the three Schneider lenses were able to cope with even the most severe conditions encountered during launch, without the need for modifications of any kind. On earth, these lenses are typically used for 3D measurements in scientific and industrial applications, including advanced robotic vision, machine vision, metrology, and all kinds of visual inspection systems where high reliability and precision are essential.
