Founded out of necessity in 2004, StingRay Optics has steadily ascended to being a premier designer of custom infrared lens systems to the world. Acquired by Gooch & Housego in 2017, StingRay is positioned to move at the speed of a startup with the backing of a worldwide public company.

StingRay specializes in the design, assembly and testing of systems spanning the IR spectrum, also considering UV and visible builds when COTS solutions aren’t enough. Our talented technical team of optical designers, opto-mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and assemblers are passionate about building systems that the world has never seen before. StingRay’s services include start to finish lens systems, specializing in lightweight, folded geometry MWIR zoom systems, high performance SWIR telescopes and UHD LWIR systems just to name a few.

Much like the vast oceans that the StingRay calls home, our team is comprised of talented individuals who have been carried here on the waves of their own personal success. Each and every member plays a critical role in the design, development and support of our one-of-a-kind optical solutions.
