Refined Technology

Built to Demanding Specs

Fast steering mirrors have become key components in diverse applications spanning from high value space assets to tactical military hardware and industrial instrumentation. We’ve continually refined this type of mirror technology over the past 25 years with products ranging from tens of millimeters to a half meter. We’ve advanced the optic, the motors that move it, the feedback sensors that determine mirror position, and the control system that ties it all together.

Our fast steering mirrors are a key component on the James Webb Space Telescope and aircraft infrared countermeasure systems. A fast steering mirror can be used for tracking, scanning, pointing, line of sight stabilization and alignment.


Fast steering mirrors are a critical component of this missile defense program.

James Webb Space Telescope

Webb's optical system will be sensitive enough to detect the first light after the Big Bang.
