COTSWORKS’ FORCE R&D Center (Fiber Optic Research Center of Excellence) announces plan

COTSWORKS is expanding its current R&D program with the recently announced Fiber Optic Research Center of Excellence (FORCE). This research center will be housed in our current facility at 749 Miner Road in Highland Heights. FORCE will focus on product innovations for optical networking in opto-electronic and optical interconnect components. The existing facility will house precision optical alignment, encapsulation, and test equipment designed for the optical semiconductor industry, and will be reorganized to accommodate the advanced manufacturing equipment for a projected date in mid-2019.

COTSWORKS manufactures rugged optical transceivers and cables used in harsh environments. COTSWORKS is based in Highland Heights, Ohio and Fulda, Germany, operating with an ISO 9001:2015 + AS9100D quality system. The company’s products are changing the way aircraft and military systems are designed and manufactured.
