A.D.S. International is a private company working in the field of Astronomy and Defense Systems design and production.
We operate in an industrial plant located near Lecco (Italy). We are equipped with up-to-date engineering and design tools; thanks to our mechanical workshop and electronics laboratory we can prototype directly our products. In our integration and calibration facilities we perform in-house all the most critical steps of the development and qualification process of our systems.
Our astronomy activity is focused on large Deformable Mirrors for Adaptive Optics systems, for which we are leading suppliers of major observatories. In the same field we provide high-precision high-payload hexapod positioner systems.
For defense and telecom application we developed a new suit of high-end antenna systems: land SOTM, airborne datalink terminals and ground stations. All these products have been specifically developed for the defense market and are not subject to US ITAR/EAR restrictions.
