DAS Photonics

DAS Photonics is a Spanish company providing high-end solutions based on its proprietary photonics technology for the most demanding applications worldwide both in Spatial Communications and in Signal Intelligence fields.

DAS Photonics’ products competitive advantage is given by the intrinsic features of photonics technology, beating electronics by far in terms of Bandwidth, Size, Weight and Power consumption (SWaP).

DAS Photonics customers, mostly platform prime contractors or Government Agencies, are located in three different continents, with systems deployed in many countries for Defence and Space applications.



DAS is developing key enabling photonics technologies to upgrade satellite payload performances thanks to the inherent benefits brought by Photonics.


DAS Photonics provides next generation radar and communication threats awareness, countermeasuring and signal intelligence gathering solutions. These beyond state-of-the-art solutions are able to cope with the most advanced techniques.


DAS Photonics products are powered by proprietary photonics technology. Our products detect, transport, route and analyze complex broadband RF signals in real time thanks to photonics-assisted processing.


DAS Photonics has successfully led and participated in FP6, FP7 and H2020 funded projects, ESA and EDA R&D programmes. R&D activities have focused in technologies such as photonic integrated circuits, photonic LO distribution and modules for SATCOM payloads and ultra-broadband photonic-assisted sampling, among others, allowing DAS Photonics to advance the TRL of proprietary photonic technologies afterwards transferred to its product portfolio. DAS has also led National and Regional funded programmes focused in critical product developments.
