Optical Assemblies

Design and manufacturing of OEM precision optical assemblies are the focus in Jupiter, FL.  Our design process takes a product from idea, to drawings, through prototyping and ultimately production while insuring our customers the agreed control over the manufacturing processes, component suppliers and delivered hardware. We are experts in optical design and system test.  Local resources Read More

Optical & Mechanical Design

3JENOPTIK Optical Systems, Inc. provides unique and custom precision engineered solutions on a case-by-case basis. Typical project starting points vary from customer supplied optical designs requiring review for manufacturability to “back of the napkin” sketches with application requirements. Design Goals Primary design challenges can be meeting optical performance, meeting optical performance at environmental conditions, or Read More


Optical Assembly Capabilities Our Optical Assembly department in Jupiter includes 600 ft2 of Class 10,000 clean room space along with 3000 ft2 of general assembly labs.  Assembly operates two shifts per day. Meeting Cleanliness for Semiconductor and Flight Hardware The cleanroom assembly space is ISO 7 certified and includes: Assembly stations with laminar flow hoods (achieves Read More

Optical Test

Manufacturing fully tested and qualified assemblies are the core business of JENOPTIK Optical Systems.  Optical test capabilities both on the production floor and for final acceptance testing are fundamental to our success. For OEM assemblies, testing often involves custom metrology configurations which include a mixture of interferometry,  MTF, transmission and “as used” imaging tests. Capabilities support Read More


With polished optics, JENOPTIK Optical Systems, Inc. manufactures to the tolerances listed in the chart below. Cost implications of moving out of a category to a tighter tolerance requirement can mean multiples of cost for a component. In systems manufacture, component tolerances are held only to the tightest degree necessary to ensure optical performance.

Aspheric Manufacturing

Precision Asphere capability coupled with experience Precision aspheres have been a distinguishing product  in the Jupiter facility since the founding of Coastal Optical in 1991.  In 2002, the company transitioned from conventional polishing by master opticians to deterministic CNC polishing using QED’s MRF® technology. In 2002 JENOPTIK successfully delivered the first MRF® polished aspheric flight hardware to Ball Aerospace Read More

Diamond Turned IR Optics

Single point diamond turning was added to the Jupiter, FL facility in 2010 extending the manufacturing capabilities of JENOPTIK in the US. Materials Infrared materials including germanium (Ge), calcium fluoride (CaF2), zinc sulfide (ZnS), zinc selenide (ZnSe), aluminium (Al) and chalcogenide glasses like AMTIR are turned. Unique Pairing with Infrared Microoptics Leveraging our wafer scale fabrication Read More

Optical Coatings

JENPOPTIK Optical Systems operates 4 coating chambers for coating of optics produced internally. Specialty coatings are regularly sourced from partners as required for specialty applications. Coating technology The Jupiter, FL locations operates 4 ion-assist chambers that primarily run AR coatings for 50 mm to 200 mm diameter elements. These chambers provide volume and redudnancy to assure our customers a steady flow of Read More
