Optagon Photonics is a private company based in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 2016 by a group of highly motivated and experienced researchers and engineers in the fields of photonics, communications, sensing and signal processing. The core competence of the company associates with our ability to interface these fields and work along the innovation chain of photonics-enabled products from the concept idea to the prototype. Since its foundation, Optagon Photonics is in a business expansion phase, offering a broad range of solutions for the development of smart controllers for photonics-based devices for communications and sensing applications.
Role in the project
Optagon participates in the design of TERAWAY modules and has a key role in the development of DSP methods and specific methods for the beamforming tasks and all other tasks that are based on the beamforming functionality. Optagon will work on the development of the control electronics unit that will control all optical structures (lasers, and phase shifters) in the optical part of the modules. Optagon will work closely together with ICOM and ICCS on the system integration of the modules, nodes and system, on developing interfaces and will actively participate with ICCS and ICOM in the testing activities of WP7.
