LightWorks Optics' extensive heritage in developing and delivering space products has enabled us to design and deliver optical components and assemblies for a wide variety of NASA platforms and missions, including: the Mars descent camera, Mars Rover optics, Mars High Resolution Optics, the Deep Impact Program, the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX), the COMS weather and communications satellite, and space-based laser communications systems.
We also recently delivered the WFOV and NFOV optical systems for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched in June 2009. And we're currently developing the large high-precision lens assembly for the Geosynchronous Lightning Mapper (GLM), scheduled for delivery in 2010.
At LightWorks Optics, we can identify and establish your critical optical system requirements, then deploy our rigorous analytical, assembly, and measurement capabilities to ensure the highest quality, best-fit solution possible.
