Space and Big Science

The global space industry is changing rapidly: exploration of the universe, Earth observation and deployment of broadband Internet. This growth is leading to the development of constellations (nano and microsatellites) and increasing the need for bandwidth to carry data via laser optical communications (between satellites and between Earth and Space). To meet these new needs, our teams offer qualified on-board solutions and on-demand systems, and make a valuable contribution to major programs on behalf of historical and emerging space players, French (CNES) or international (ESA, NASA) agencies. With twenty years of experience in the market and extensive engineering expertise, Bertin Photonics also offers the development and production of test benches (OGSE) for optical loads.

Privileged partner of the teams in charge of the large scientific fusion facilities, and thanks to its experience on the LMJ (Laser Megajoule) project, Bertin Photonics studies and realizes numerous diagnostics for the ITER project. Bertin Photonics is also present in the astronomy and synchrotron market. We have significant experience in instrumentation dedicated to large telescopes such as custom optical components and complete instruments (image slicers, spectrographs, lenses, optical derotators, collimators, etc.) and we produce X-ray mirrors and X-ray mirror systems (benders, KB, positioners, …) for synchrotrons light lines.
