Optisys, LLC, headquartered in Salt Lake, Utah, USA, and aerospace and defence company LIG Nex1, Yongin-si, South Korea, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Defense Expo Korea 2022 focusing on cooperation in the field of digital manufacturing technology linked to additively manufactured antenna systems.

“Additively manufactured antenna systems drastically reduce SWaP [Size, Weight and Power], while reducing part count and simplifying the supply chain, all of which are critical factors in reducing total system level costs while improving reliability in the defence and aerospace industries” stated Janos Opra, CEO, Optisys. “With Optisys technology and LIG’s excellence in producing advanced systems, we expect to create novel systems that reach new levels of efficiency and excellence.”
