Founded in 2002, SA Photonics is a privately-held small business headquartered in Los Gatos, CA. SA Photonics develops innovative photonics solutions for both commercial and government applications. Their three main areas of focus for product development are Optical Communications, Lasers & Lidar, and Optical Sensors. 
SA Photonics design, produce, and manufacture free-space optical (FSO) communication systems for various applications (See Advantages of FSO). These FSO systems utilize SA Photonics’ patented optics design, optimized to operate through atmospheric channels. Their products have built-in physical layer retransmission to overcome atmospheric-induced fading, and a design allowing for automatic link acquisition. 
Lasers & Lidar
SA Photonics design, produce, and manufacture wideband, spatially coherent supercontinuum lasers at high power outputs. These lasers power various imaging products, including airborne lidar and hyperspectral imaging. 
SA Photonics designs and produces optical sensors for military and commercial applications. These technologies include proprietary compressive sensing that enables a large proportion of the RF spectrum to be sensed instantaneously. The fiber optic-based systems provide a vastly wide instantaneous frequency bandwidth making them suitable for current, new, and emerging wideband and ultra-wideband systems.
