Design & Build

Now widely acknowledged as an expert in our field, Kent Periscopes offer a mechanical, optical and electrical design service in support of the supply of our products.

Taking into account a wide range of constraints and variables such as; space envelope, interface definition, fields of view, user positioning - all of which vary from vehicle to vehicle, and indeed by different periscope position – our expert team will design and deliver an optimised solution that is tailored to the your given set of requirement. Whether that be a modification to an existing product, or the development of an entirely new and bespoke design.

If required, new designs can be turned quickly into evaluation units using rapid prototyping techniques. With representative working prototypes available for delivery typically within a matter of weeks from the start of an engagement.

Utilising the latest CAD software, the design and detailing is worked-up to build 3D solid models that can be supplied for 'virtual' fitting into a customer's own vehicle CAD models. In addition, ground intersect calculations can be performed and combined system field of view 'polar maps' derived for a given configuration to check for obscuration, and other issues arising from the in-situ positioning of the equipment.
