BEI Precision has decades of expertise in developing and manufacturing space encoders. More than 90% of the encoders on-orbit today are BEI Precision encoders. The platforms utilizing a BEI Precision solution in space include the JPSS-1 (NOAA-20), JPSS-2, GoSat, and GOES weather monitoring satellites. BEI Precision also delivered integral encoder systems to the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (Canadarm) and the Hubble Space Telescope.
BEI Precision is participating in the ‘new’ space market with a cadre of commercial off the shelf products specifically designed to be the optimum solution for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) applications. Utilizing a COTS approach speeds up time to market with the greatest value.
