MIRATLAS SAS, designs and manufactures the Integrated Sky Monitor (ISM), which provides overlapping, continuous, live real-time, high resolution monitoring of the sky and atmospheric conditions.
The ISM is built for autonomous, remote 24/7/365 outdoor operation including a wide suite of passive optical instruments available for the first time in such compact and easy to install package.
Deployed in network, ISMs allow simultaneous survey of potential sites for FSO ground stations or solar power plants.
During normal OGS or solar power plant operation, a local network of ISMs surrounding the facility allows the optimisation of operations by providing precise weather and atmospheric conditions nowcasting.
Miratlas SAS and ASTELCO Systems GmbH have entered into a commercial partnership combining their experience and products to offer complete automated robotic telescope systems and OGS observatories.
ASTELCO Systems, founded in 2004, is engaged in telescopes, telescope control systems, Optical Ground Stations, domes/enclosures and related technology, providing high-accuracy pointing and tracking of satellites and astronomical objects.
Miratlas established in 2018 provides complete optical atmospheric characterisation of cloud cover, turbulence, absorption, and weather which are critical to automated telescope operations.
Together, both companies are providing complete turn key systems meeting the requirements not only of astronomical research but also of applications demanding continuous 24/7 operation such as Free-Space Optical Communication (FSOC) and Space Situational Awareness.
Miratlas and PlaneWave Instruments announce partnership to streamline robotic telescope design, deployment and operation for advanced applications
Gréoux-les-Bains, France, June 23rd, 2020 – Miratlas SAS and PlaneWave Instruments Inc. announce today their commercial collaboration joining efforts to facilitate site survey, robotic telescope systems, and optical ground station operations.
PlaneWave Instruments expertise in both optical and mechanical design since 2006 allowed them to develop over the years a complete range of telescopes from 35cm up to 1m diameter as well as a corresponding choice of mounts capable of delivering high speed and high precision tracking for payloads up to 135kg.
Miratlas established in 2018 provides a unique turn-key solution for complete optical atmospheric characterisation of cloud cover, turbulence, absorption, and weather which are critical to automated telescope operations.
