Opto-mechanical Subsystems


Redstone Aerospace has designed and fabricated beam directors and precision pointing gimballed mechanisms for terrestrial, maritime, airborne, and space applications.  We have experience with both on and off-axis optical systems.  Our staff has the breadth of technical skills and depth of experience to successfully develop state-of-the art products.  Each delivered system has requirements that are unique to both the mission objectives and the operational objectives.   We perform detailed finite element analysis for every beam director we produce.  The analysis is used to determine peak stresses under environment conditions and loads and to determine the structural modes and dynamic behavior.  Similarly, we perform optical analyses to determine beam expander/telescope prescription, tolerances, and sensitivity.   We provide exceptional value and customer service to ensure our products meet or exceed expectations, and we adapt to the changing needs of our customers.  Our core competencies include:

  • Mechanical Design
  • Optical Analysis and Design
  • Control System Analysis and Design
  • Carbon Fiber Composite Experience
  • Additive Manufacturing 
  • Software Development
