BlueHalo offers space optical communications solutions and products for national security, civil space, and commercial markets. Our offerings provide high-bandwidth, high-security solutions that overcome spectrum allocation issues and provide 100 to 1,000X increased bandwidth over RF communications systems. BlueHalo’s key technologies include advanced platform stabilization subsystems, innovative tracking and pointing subsystems, real-time controls algorithms and firmware, compact, athermal optical designs, and unique isolation subsystems. BlueHalo also delivers multi-band, multi-mission antenna systems that enable effects for Telemetry and Satellite Communications (SATCOM).
Space Domain Awareness Solutions
BlueHalo provides exquisite pointing and tracking system solutions for the space domain awareness mission that leverages our long heritage in optics, gimbal pointing control, tracking, image processing, and satellite image exploitation. BlueHalo is capable of full-service component through system design (CAD) and analysis (FEA, thermal, optical), as well as in-house fabrication, and assembly, integration and test (AI&T). We also offer Battle Management, Command and Control (BMC2) and planner analysis, and satellite assessment.
Advanced Research and Development
BlueHalo delivers high-end engineering services at customer-sites in space systems technologies, Directed Energy (DE) technologies, Operational Test & Evaluation (OT&E) support, and related operations. We also provide system and subsystem Assembly, Integration & Test (AI&T) as a trusted partner to Department of Defense (DoD), civil, and industry customers.

Directed Energy

Directed Energy Icon
Weapon Systems and Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing
BlueHalo delivers cost effective, easy to use laser weapon systems that offer hard kill defeat through unique sensing, a scalable high energy laser, and high performance tracking. We also offer target, acquisition, and tracking systems that provide long range detection of dynamic small threats with microradian-level precision tracking for combat target id and 3-d location reporting. These systems feature field-proven tracking, sensing, and threat engagement logic that can be readily applied to different missions including counter-UAS (C-UAS), counter-missile, counter-rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM), intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), and test and evaluation (T&E).
Targets and Instrumentation
BlueHalo’s suite of Targets and Instrumentation characterizes High Energy Laser (HEL) and High Power Microwave (HPM) weapon system performance in operationally realistic test scenarios at tactically relevant ranges. BlueHalo designs, builds and tests novel sensor arrays that can withstand the direct effects of high energy laser weapon systems. These sensors collect, store, and transmit key performance measures about the beam, then process and present critical weapon performance metrics to ensure warfighter confidence in TTPs. Our team is advancing point measurement approaches to measure optical turbulence and better understand atmospheric propagation. In addition to measuring and characterizing DEW performance, these systems help develop operator proficiency in acquiring, tracking and engaging a reusable target. Representative targets include drones, aircraft, and stationary, mobile, land, and sea missiles.
Technical Services and Test
BlueHalo is a leading provider of high-end engineering services at customer-sites and provides full spectrum test support across a broad range of applications. From research to operational services and test, the company has provided superior services and support in the areas of Directed Energy technologies, Operational Test & Evaluation (OT&E), test planning, test execution, data analysis, and reporting, as well as the development of cutting-edge test instrumentation.
