Optisys

Optisys – 3D Printed RF Antennas & Components

Optisys is a turnkey advanced antenna and radar product vendor. Our next generation RF products can enable ground breaking system and product performance through our low SWaP-C, highly efficient, solution capability. Our technology is enabled by our novel design process and metal additive manufacturing for component production.

Optisys can provide solutions from 1 to 100GHz, from feeds and flat panel antennas, to phased arrays and Synthetic Aperture Radar, and a great deal in between. We also design and fully integrate, as part of the radiating element, peripheral aspects of the RF aperture, such as filtering, combiner networks, wave guide switching, diplexing and much more.

Featured Products

Phased Array

phased array esa aesa hybrid antenna dualband multiband wideband

Our phased array product line is offered as a Hybrid phased arrays. The Hybrid approach, where one axis electronically steered and the second axis is steered using a mechanical turntable for low power, lower cost installations. Multibeam solutions are possible with this approach too. All our phased arrays can be wide band and dual band, covering the full Ku to Ka, or X and Ku as examples, as well as also providing full duplex Tx/Rx in the same aperture.
