Omega Filters Perform In Laser Communication Terminals
15 Jun 2023
Omega Filters has the necessary experience with applications that link free-space laser communications for military and commercial customers. We provide extensive design and production of optical filters for satellite-based instruments needed for imaging and mapping the earth and space, space-to-ground and ground-to-space laser communications, and military reconnaissance.
Omega Filters products work in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) - 200-2000 km above Earth's surface, in the following situations:
We offer you our proven expertise in both design and manufacturing of precise narrow-band filters with steep edges and broad blocking for laser communication applications. One of our differentiators is the ability to athermalize our laser communication filters by using unique materials and deposition methods. Resilience to extreme temperatures is a major requirement for airborne and LEO satellite terminal optical filter performance and longevity.
Better Together. In the development of optics for ground-based terminals, Omega provides the same high-quality narrow-band filters. Our division partner, EMF, coats the large telescope reflectors that collect and concentrate the signal. Spectral Systems optimizes the beam shape with custom diamond-turned aspheres for a complete package offering. Optometrics provides gratings for lasers which require tunability.
