Satellite Optical Systems


Media Lario designs and manufactures optical systems for Satellite Earth Observation, Space Telescopes and Free Space Optical Communications in addition to systems for our other historical markets. Systems involve expertise in specification, design, integration, testing and dependability. Requirements are diverse and demanding and often involve specialty requirements involving space compatibility and thermal management. Media Lario has a long history of experience in this area which is rapidly becoming a larger and larger portion of our business.
