Profile: Opt-Sciences Corp (OPST.PK)
8 Feb 2016
Opt-Sciences Corporation, incorporated in 1956, operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, O and S Research, Inc. The Company deposits anti-glare and/or transparent conductive optical coatings on glass used primarily to cover instrument panels in aircraft cockpits. It also provides full glass cutting, grinding and painting operations, which augment its optical coating capabilities. Most of the Company's products are designed to enable pilots to read aircraft instruments in direct sunlight or at night or in covert situations using appropriate night vision filters or to protect the instruments from electromagnetic interference.
The Company is engaged in providing optical thin film coatings. The Company's primary coatings are for aircraft cockpit display applications and consist of its anti-reflection coating used for glare reduction and its transparent conductive coating used for electromagnetic interference shielding. The Company applies either or both coatings to different types of glass face plates, which are usually mounted on the front of liquid crystal displays (LCDs), cathode ray tubes (CRTs), light emitting diode displays (LEDs) and electromechanical displays (EMDs). The Company also offers a range of other specialty instrument glass, including night vision filter glass, circular polarizers, touchpads, glass sandwiches for LCDs, as well as other custom designed specialty glass components and assemblies. The Company also manufactures wedge glass lenses for electro-mechanical displays, which are manufactured from large glass sheets. The Company also maintains sales websites at osresearch.com and optsciences.com.
The Company competes with JDSU, Dontech, Schott Glass, Quantum, TFD and Hoya Optics.
