Optical systems for Aerospace

ASE Optics Europe provides custom optical design and engineering service for the aerospace industry.


Large Optomechanical systems

We have experience in the design of custom optical integrated systems for aerospace applications from VIS to NIR spectral range. Our experience and knowledge include:

  • Analysis and optimization of the optical quality of multi-configuration systems considering mechanical restrictions and the reduction of “ghost images“
  • Definition of non-spherical surfaces: aspherical and diffractive elements
  • Evaluation of the effect of tolerances on the expected quality of the “as-built” system
  • Polarization analysis and Gaussian propagation simulations
  • Environmental simulations with variations in pressure and temperature: cryogenic designs and optomechanical thermalization
  • Definition of surface treatments considering environmental factors (temperature, humidity, solvents) and laser damage

In ASE Optics we can apply this knowledge for the following aerospace instrumentation and devices development:

  • Remote sensing applications
  • Custom ruggedized, high performance aerial lens
  • Gated imaging, motorized focus and zoom lenses
  • Telescopes and satellite applications
  • Optical and optomechanical subsystems design for CubeSats


But the list does not end here. As a company specialized in custom optical design and development services, we like challenges. Tell us what’s your need in optics or laser systems design and development and we will find the best solution for your devices.
