This company’s active optical devices are designed to offer high power, reliable, and durable gear for a range of defense and homeland security applications such as satellite communication, range finders, illuminators, target designators, missiles, aircraft, and smart munitions. The products demonstrate EM4’s specialty — high coupling efficiency of optical transmission.
