Highly reliable, high-power, fiber-optic amplifiers
LGS designs and manufactures custom, high-power, fiber-optic amplifiers for demanding U.S. government applications. These amplifiers are designed to withstand the harshest military environments. Polarization-maintaining, radiation-hardened designs are available that support full performance monitoring and high average and peak powers.
Modems for free-space-optical communications
LGS offers custom modems for free-space optical communication systems, accommodating a wide range of modulation formats and output powers and including onboard capabilities for forward-error correction, framing, and interleaving. They are designed to work reliably in demanding airborne and space environments. LGS is an approved NASA vendor.
Laser transmitters for remote-sensing systems
LGS designs and manufactures custom lasers for remote-sensing systems. LGS designs support applications as diverse as three-dimensional laser-RADAR imaging and stand-off spectroscopy. LGS offers lasers in the 1-, 1.5- and 2.0- micron bands, supporting arbitrary phase, frequency and amplitude modulation. Our lasers can generate a wide range of average and peak powers and can be designed to fit into custom form factors.
