Space Ready Optics for Satellite Data Relay Systems

15 Jun 2020

Resolve Optics is a leading OEM designer and supplier of high performance optical systems for satellite data relay systems 

Mark Pontin, Managing Director of Resolve Optics Ltd. commented "Because of the growing international demand for data, telecom and satellite communication, operators are faced with needing to deliver massive data quantities without significant delays. Consequently, demand for new and improved satellite data relay systems incorporating our high performance space-ready optics is expanding rapidly.

He added “The Earth orbit that satellite data relay systems operate in determines how much radiation the optics they incorporate will be required to withstand. All optical elements within our radiation tolerant optical designs are made using cerium oxide doped glass or synthetic silica enabling them to withstand radiation doses of up to 100,000,000 rads and temperatures up to 55°C without discoloration or degradation of performance. Our radiation resistant optics provide high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750nm”.

Optical systems used in satellite data relay systems also have to meet additional  basic requirements to survive the harsh environment of space. These optics must be constructed of specific materials that will not outgas when exposed to the vacuum of space and all significant air spaces should be vented to avoid pressure on and distortion of the optical elements.

Drawing upon nearly 30 years experience – Resolve Optics has built a strong reputation for specialist lens design and manufacture of smaller production quantities of high performance precision lenses and optical products on time to strict quality and target price guidelines. The company’s technological expertise in designing and supplying high performance, radiation-resistant optical systems for spaceborne projects is widely acknowledged.
