Communication systems installed into satellites allow inter-satellite and satellite-earth communication.
As the demand for high-volume and high-speed data communications continues to rise, research and development of Free Space Optical Communications and Laser Communication Terminals, as a technology to supplement the radio frequency communication, is currently in progress.
Free space optical communication needs beam transmission accuracy such as optical axis and divergence, and the optical system requires Coarse Pointing allowing to identify the position of target object and Fine Pointing allowing to achieve a highly precise stable communication.
Tamron applies the Vibration Compensation technology which makes use of image stabilization and high-precision lens zooming technology to Free Space Optical Communication application which requires the technologies such as Vibration Compensation, beam divergence control, and evaluation and measurement of beam profile.
Based on these superior optical technologies, Tamron received a publicly solicited project “Optics for Beam-Divergence Control” from the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT).
Tamron is currently conducting ongoing research and development for further miniaturization and weight reduction.
