Feb 22, 2006
Avo Photonics, specialist in optical and RF packaging solutions, has been featured in the latest annual publication from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), NASA Spinoff (www.sti.nasa.gov/tto/spinoff2005).
The article titled "The Space Laser Business Model" recognizes Avo Photonics as a company that has the experience, capabilities, resources and systems in place to be a leading technology partner for any organization fulfilling contracts for NASA, the Department of Defense, or others in the military and aerospace industry.
The feature article also notes that "Avo Photonics is unique in its combination of high-level engineering support and prototype-to-production facility capabilities. Its customers have a one-stop-shop to see their visions realized."
"We offer three distinct services: design, prototyping, and production, all for one specific field: photonics," said Dr. Joseph Dallas president and chief operating officer for Avo Photonics and former deputy-director of NASA's Space Lidar Technology Center (SLTC). "With the entire shop set up as a closed-loop production facility, we can take a design from conception through full-scale production of hand-crafted, high-tech parts. Furthermore, we are purely a specialty service firm that does not manufacture its own products, which assures that our customers' intellectual property is never compromised."
Avo Photonics' technical team consists of former NASA engineers, as well as engineers experienced in production for federal programs. For a complete overview of Avo Photonics' service offerings, visit www.avophotonics.com
