Hardware Investment Results in Significant Expansion of Optical Design and Analysis Capabilities

ones_zerosCoastal Optical Systems’ business is delivery of optically tested assemblies and sub assemblies. Success often depends on comprehensive tolerance analysis and the ability to tweak designs for the realities of fabrication.

To take full advantage of the design and analytical tools available and strengthen our in-house capabilities, Coastal recently invested in an eight (8) CPU “bleeding edge” server for optical simulation and the initial results have been quite startling.


US subsidiaries exhibit as JENOPTIK | Optical Systems division

CoastalOpt® UV-VIS-IR lens images the Dead Sea Scrolls

Working with the Israeli Antiquities Authority, Dr. Greg Bearman (www.snapshotspectra.com) has used the CoastalOpt® UV-VIS-IR 60 mm lens for imaging of the Dead Sea Scrolls.


 The work, performed in August, is part of a technology qualification for digitizing the scrolls. High resolution visible and IR images will allow for precise detection of deterioration and allow researchers worldwide to view the Scrolls electronically.


See first fully corrected lens for the UV-VIS-NIR at Photokina


Come see the new CoastalOpt® 60mm UV-VIS-IR 1:4 Apo Macro lens at Photokina 2008 September 23-28.

Visit us under the bright lights in Köln, Germany. Coastal is exhibiting the lens with sister company Sinar in Hall 4.2 Exhibit C021.


First fully Corrected lens for the UV-VIS-NIR Spectrum Introduced

Jupiter, FL – Coastal Optical Systems Inc. is pleased to introduce the new CoastalOpt® 60mm UV-VIS-IR 1:4 Apo Macro lens.

CoastalOpt_UV_IR_60s2.jpgA first in optical design, the 60mm UV-VIS-IR 1:4 Apo Macro provides full apochromatic correction over an extraordinarily broad waveband ranging from the onset of atmospheric ultraviolet transparency at 315nm to the limit of CCD/CMOS sensitivity at 1100nm in the infrared.


Coastal Optical Systems Expands into New Facility

Coastal Optical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce its expansion and relocation to:


16490 Innovation Drive, Jupiter, FL 33478

This move doubles our facility from 19,000 to 38,000 square feet.

Germany’s Export-Led Economy Finds Global Niche

By MARK LANDLER (New York Times)

Published: April 13, 2007

JENA, Germany — For those seeking the elixir that has given new life to Germany’s economy, a visit to this ancient university town in the eastern part of the country would be a good place to start.

Jena is booming these days, as local companies like Jenoptik, which makes lasers and sensors, rack up orders from China, Russia, Europe and the United States. Even the surging euro, which is near record levels against the dollar and the yen — making German exports more expensive in many foreign markets has not yet dented demand.



Aspheric and large aperture test capabilities expanded with QED Technologies SSI-A Interferometer

ssia_sWest Palm Beach, FL (April 16, 2007) – Coastal Optical Systems has completed installation of an enabling technology for precision asphere testing and manufacture. QED Technologies’ SSI-A™ Interferometer greatly increases accuracy and maximum full aperture that can be tested while reducing lead-time and non-recurring costs previously associated with interferometric testing of aspheres.


Coastal Optical Systems receives ISO 9001:2000 certification

Coastal-ISO-Certificate2.jpg(West Palm Beach, FL) Coastal Optical Systems received ISO 9001:2000 certification March 3, 2007.
"Achieving certification with the first audit is something we’re really proud of," said Jay Kumler, president of Coastal. "Achieving this during a period of rapid growth, while adding new departments like coating, and while bringing on new people across the organization really says something for the dedication of the Coastal team.”
