cosine develops and supplies optical and in-situ measurement systems that are used in space, air, field, factory, hospital and any other place where measurements make the difference between success and failure.

Our knowledge

Over the last 25 years we have solved a large number of measurement challenges, ranging from supernovas to the freshness of fish. We use our knowledge in physics, electronics and software to solve problems in an innovative way.



Space & Earth


We use our two decades of space heritage for applications in space and on Earth, ranging from asteroids to field and factory.
