Applying Systems Engineering methodologies to the development of Optical Systems 22 May 2023
SE-Training - 12th June, 4pm BST/5pm CET/11am EST/ 8am PST
The successful end-to-end development of Optical systems is notoriously a great challenge, consisting of many sub-challenges! The Optical Systems Engineer / Architect has a problem that is quite unlike many of the traditional engineering disciplines, in that the Optical system already begins with a very high dependency on the other disciplines. As the technical complexity increases, realising predictable schedules becomes even more difficult. Hence the need for supporting the development activities with a holistic approach, utilising skills, methods and processes from Systems Engineering. The presentation focuses on certain key areas of the development, that highly benefit from a Systems Engineering approach and toolbox.

How to monitor laser system performance with power measurement 19 Sep 2022
Gentec EO - Join Paige Stevens from Gentec EO on Wed 19th Oct. 8amPST/ 11am EST/ 4pm UK/ 5pm CET
Does your laser system always produce the exact same output? The laser itself, the optical components that guide your laser’s light to its delivery point and also the surrounding environment, all have an impact on the output and efficiency of your processes. To ensure consistent, repeatable results, it is important to track your system’s health at various checkpoints. Do you know how to measure it? This webinar will show you how to measure your laser’s power accurately and he right tools can help you track your laser system’s performances easily before problems arise for faster product development, increased productivity and standardized quality control. The basic principles for laser power measurement will be presented, both for continuous monitoring and spot-check measurements.

SWIR imaging systems are deployed for defense and security applications, often in the harshest of environments. Using SWIR provides vision through haze, mist, rain, fog and in challenging atmospheric conditions. In this webinar we explore how those environments dictate the need for ruggedized engineering solutions. 8th September 2021 - 2:30pm BST/3:30pm CET/9:30am EST/6:30am PST - Sign up today!
Optical Filters in Space 01 Sep 2021
Iridian Spectral Technologies
Book your space now for the "Optical Filters in Space" webinar with industry expert Jason Palidwar - 1st September 9am PST/12pm EST/5pm BST/6pm CET “Space, the final frontier”. Over the past two decades optical filters have established their value as the key wavelength selective elements in many terrestrial photonics applications from telecom to 3D cinema. Rapid growth in two space-based applications, Satcom and Earth Observation, has created new extraterrestrial needs for optical filters. In this webinar we’ll discuss these applications and the optical filters that enable them.
