Development facilities

cosine has optical and electronic integration spaces for development of measurement systems such as hyperspectral, thermal, and altimetric instruments. Availability of significant optical table space allows for many setups and technologies to be developed concurrently. Based on a specification of the measurement problem, cosine develops a measurement method specifically for your needs. The chosen technology or solution is then demonstrated in a laboratory setup.


cosine has significant development space, including separate cleanrooms for plate cleaning & inspection, plate stacking & mirror module integration, optical development & integration, testing and quality control. Within these cleanrooms, cosine develops techniques for quality control such as fringe reflection techniques, interferometric analysis and laser scanning. Multiple robot arms perform all handling of the stacks, including stacking and discarding plates which do not meet our requirements. The robotics set-ups are unique and have been designed in house.

Testing & qualification facilities

In our testing and qualification laboraties we test and qualify optical, opto-electronic and electronic (sub)systems. This includes testing of high-power lasers, testing under vacuum and at lowered or elevated temperatures, if necessary under cleanroom conditions. In our environmental testing laboratories we perform shock testing, vibration testing and thermal vacuum testing to qualify equipment for space and other extreme environmental conditions.

Production facilities

cosine builds measurement systems according to your requirements, including hardware and software. We can integrate one of our measurement systems into your system, such as your production line, laboratory automation system or in the field. Our measurement system will be fully documented and can be delivered including instructions, on-site commissioning and training. Depending on the requirements resulting from the environment in which the system will be used, production of the first unit(s) can take between a month and a year. cosine builds one-off systems and small series in house. We can organize the production of larger series with our partners.
