Opto-pyrotechnics solutions

  • Firing devices

Systems for the safe ignition of one or more optopyrotechnic

  • Optical Barriers

Optical switches (barrier and multi-channel addressing) can be integrated into pyrotechnic firing systems and are compatible with harsh environment applications.

  • Optical reflectors and power meters

Portable, lightweight, robust and autonomous peripheral devices for optical line control in laboratory and production environments.

  • Qualification of power diodes

Environmental test campaigns for the qualification and testing of opto-electronic and opto-mechanical components dedicated to opto-pyrotechnics (thermal, humidity, vibration).
