Over 40 Years Experience in Space Optics...

PLX’s space heritage dates back to 1975 when the company provided hollow retroreflectors to the Apollo-Soyuz Russian-American space hookup program. The units were used in the docking procedure to align the two vehicles.


Ever since, PLX has been developing new technologies for critical programs. The recent development of our Monolithic Optical Structure Technology (M.O.S.T.™) has led to further state-of-the-art capabilities for Aerospace, Military and Industrial applications.

PLX's Monolithic Optical Structure Technology (M.O.S.T.™) continues to be a part of some of the world’s most important space and military missions.

M.O.S.T.™ is a unique innovation that combines a complex optical function into a single monolithic unit, while substantially reducing the instrument's footprint.

This proven technology achieves superb mechanical stability, exceptional accuracy and long-term dependability even in the harshest of space and military environments.
