Systems and Instrumentation (FS)

This group takes a systems approach to integrate several disciplines into an instrument. The individual components can include aspects from the various division and technical groups of the OSA with the goal of achieving a desired function and performance. Additionally, thermal and vibrational effects, life cycle issues, and so forth are included in this group. Examples include spacecrafts, telescope systems, and commercial optics.

With over 1100 OSA members interested in this research area, keep your colleagues abreast of changes in your career, new projects, and/or personal news.
