Product Announcement from Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies
Your ideas and concepts will find an enthusiastic welcome here. Their Research and Development Engineers are ready to solve any problem in their chosen field. They conduct sophisticated R&D for new programs and to support on-going production. For all programs, a pool of highly experienced technical specialists is available for the purposes of ensuring that a high quality product is developed within budget and schedule constraints. The following narrative describes some of the strengths of their R&D group.
- Optical Design Capabilities
Optical design is performed using state-of-the-art computational hardware in conjunction with the latest simulator software. The optical design group encompasses the areas of detailed lens design, optical thin film definition and the assembly and alignment of prototypes, and optical testing.
- Mechanical Design Capabilities
Their mechanical design department works closely with the optical and electronic design groups to ensure that the design of each product meets the physical, operational, and performance specifications. Production Engineering and Quality Assurance representatives are involved in the design process from the initial concept through to the final manufacturing drawings. The mechanical design group is divided into two main functional areas, one responsible for the design of pure lens systems and the other responsible for optomechanical assemblies.
- Electrical Design Capabilities
ELCAN has facilities to design and test analog and digital hardware and software. Projects such as high performance servo loops for military optical data storage systems, laser scanning systems, and digital projection systems have been developed.
ELCAN seamlessly integrates its advanced optics, mechanical and electronics capabilities to provide custom, turn-key solutions. Top-quality engineering and design services are a major component of any complex, development program. Discovering after you are heading for production that your drawings need major revisions to meet cost and performance goals, can be a real project killer.
