EMCORE’s decision this past April to shut down its defense optoelectronics product line has provided a market opportunity, Optical Zonu believes.
Optical Zonu Corp. has launched what it calls an “EMCORE Customer Relief Program” in hopes of capturing new customers for the company’s RF over fiber (RFoF) transport products. EMCORE’s decision this past April to shut down its defense optoelectronics product line has provided a market opportunity, Optical Zonu believes.
Optical Zonu supplies a wide range of RFoF transport systems, subsystems, modules, and components. Such products apply to a variety of applications within the military and aerospace markets. For example, they can support RF signal transport for antenna remoting on military aircraft and ships, enable secure satellite phone connections and sensitive compartmented information facilities (SCIFs), as well as transport GPS timing.
“Fiber-optic transport plays a critical role in defense and aerospace, and these communication systems are continuously upgraded, routinely managed and improved to meet changing and often arduous environments,” commented Meir Bartur, co-founder and CEO of Optical Zonu. “We developed the EMCORE Customer Relief Program to aid organizations facing this issue in the wake of EMCORE sunsetting their broadband business.”
