Sierra Olympic Technologies Inc.


Who We Are

Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. offers advanced infrared imaging systems and components for commercial, military, government and OEM customers.

We are both a manufacturer of infrared camera products, and a distributor of components in infrared technology. We craft specialized infrared imaging systems designed for commercial, military, government and OEM end-users. We support infrared camera and component technologies from the industry's leading technology developers. Our services and products include optics, infrared camera components and engines, and specialized digital processing of infrared image data.



Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1995 as a sales representation firm for advanced, cooled infrared camera technologies developed by Amber, a Raytheon Company. The founders' experience dates back to the earliest commercially-available, cooled InSb cameras developed in the late 1980's. In 2010, the company was acquired by Hood Technology Corporation of Hood River, OR.

Sierra-Olympic's expertise dates back to the earliest commercially-available cooled MWIR Indium Antimonide (InSb) focal plane arrays, and spans virtually all modern FPA-based infrared imaging technologies. We have grown to become one of the largest consumers of cooled MWIR component technology in the world. We support leading technologies in uncooled microbolometer FPAs, and we have extensive experience in infrared optics development and integration, and sensor-processor interfaces.

With roots in the Western USA, Sierra-Olympic now services customers worldwide with consistent dedication to advanced technologies, exportable EAR products, and custom development of camera engines for a wide range of applications.
