The Engineering division develops high-tech solutions for scientific and industrial use. Microgate Engineering is the ideal partner for businesses looking for solutions for development, production, and integration of technological devices.
Since 1995 research has been focused on the development of control systems for adaptive mirrors, real time computers for adaptive optics, adaptive optics sensors and radioastronomy. In just a few years, these systems have become the center of the most innovative research worldwide in the field of astronomy. Such systems have been developed by Microgate for some of the most important new generation telescopes of the world: the Multiple Mirror Telescope in Arizona (2002), the Keck Telescopes on Hawaii (2006), the Large Binocular Telescope in Arizona (2010), the Magellan Baade Telescope (2012) and the ESO VLT (delivered to ESO-Garching in 2014) in Chile. The Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array in Chile (2012), too - the main radioastronomy project of the next decade - uses Microgate technology.
The Engineering division develops advanced solutions for scientific and industrial use. Control systems developed by Microgate not only provide an ideal solution for the requirements of many businesses, but are also the technological heart of the most advanced astronomical research worldwide.
