We supply photonic components for harsh environment applications.  These applications require components to operate through wide temperature ranges, shock, vibration, condensation, chemicals, and/or radiation.

Example applications are: aerospace, space, shipboard, automotive, and high-performance computing (high temperature and/or submersion cooling).

Fiber Optic Components for Harsh Environment Applications

We present fiber optic components and technology for harsh environment application, such as aerospace and shipboard. This includes digital transceivers and RF over fiber components, and high-resolution optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) integration into fiber optic transceivers. Transceivers with built-in-test (BIT) OTDR can characterize the fiber plant and isolate faults to reduce network installation and maintenance costs. We present embedded OTDR technology applied to network security, for the detection of network configuration changes.
