In this tough and demanding Defense and Aerospace Market, PMG is collaborating with PLX Inc., an innovative high-precision optics technology leader, to launch target programs to promote PLX’s products and capabilities. The integrated Market Program will focus on key functional areas, mission-critical applications, various platforms, and target accounts that fit PLX's competencies and area of expertise.
Read the article about how PLX retroreflectors and LHTRs help to keep the emitter and telescope of the ATLAS program perfectly aligned. The article was published in LASER COMPONENTS Photonics News Magazine - Issue 88.
Check out this exclusive interview With PLX Inc.’s CEO, Itai Vishnia. Discover PLX’s heritage in the defense and aerospace industry, and the journey of new innovative technologies achieved along the way. Learn about PLX’s key technology, such as the M.O.S.T™ (Monolithic Optical Structure Technology) and how it has exceeded the expectations of many. Finally, get a glimpse of the future of PLX INC, and what ground breaking solutions they are developing next.
Itai Vishnia, PLX CEO, recently presented “Transforming Space Optics by Integrating Innovative Monolithic Optical Systems" at the EPIC (EUROPEAN PHOTONICS INDUSTRY CONSORTIUM) meeting on New Space at the European Space Agency in the Netherlands. The conference brought together some of the world’s leading companies and experts, to cover key priorities for the “New Space Roadmap.”
Recently presented at the EPIC World Photonics Technology Summit 2019 Berlin Germany,(EPIC - EUROPEAN PHOTONICS INDUSTRY CONSORTIUM), by Itai Vishnia, CEO PLX Inc. The event gathers 150 experts and leaders from industrial companies around the world to discuss photonics technology developments, applications, and challenges.
PLX Hollow Roof Mirrors (HRMs) are ideal for redirecting light in one coordinate and any application where a roof top or Porro prism can be used. Useful in all wavelengths, they are available in different accuracies, coatings, and configurations.
A unique feature of the ACT-25 is the ability to focus down to 30cm (12 inches) in the telescope mode. This capability allows the measurement of lateral displacements, as opposed to the autocollimator mode, which measures angular displacements.
PLX has manufactured stainless steel hollow retroreflectors, which can withstand temperatures up to 800 degrees F. These are mounted inside the stacks of coal power plants in programs designed to measure the content of emissions from the plant.
