Sensors for Space Telescope Lens Distortion Testing

The Euclid Satellite project is a good example of how PHILTEC’s sensors work with excellent results in cryogenic conditions. This month PHILTEC again delivered sensor systems for space telescope lens distortion testing measurements. These are 2-channel fiber optic displacement sensor systems (see image above) designed for 3.2 mm operation in vacuum. The delivered seven 2-channel … Continue reading

PHILTEC Sensors Perform on Satellites in Space

It’s not often we discover how well PHILTEC sensors perform for customers. The Euclid Satellite project is a good example of their sensors functioning with excellent results in cryogenic conditions on satellites in space. A technical paper published in 2012, titled “Test results of high-precision large cryogenic lens holders,” describes how PHILTEC’s high precision sensors … Continue reading
