PLX provides unique optical instruments, technologies and solutions to problems of achieving and maintaining state-of-the-art optical accuracy and stability under severe environmental conditions. Our M.O.S.T.™ technology integrates complex optical elements into compact monolithic structures to achieve these objectives.
You’ll find PLX instruments in Military, Space / Aerospace, and Commercial / Industrial applications, as well as Spectroscopy, Boresighting, Beam Alignment and Delivery Systems, Laser Delay Lines, Laser Resonators, Laser Tracking, Military Fire Control, Environmental Monitoring, and Satellite Ranging. PLX optics are extensively used in university research and science labs around the world.
While producing Retroreflectors for the Apollo-Soyuz space mission in 1975, PLX developed new technology for the manufacture of a Hollow Retroreflector. This and the creation of its M.O.S.T™ technology lead to the accelerated expansion into the Military, Commercial / Industrial and Laboratory fields.
