Products

The engineers and technicians at OMI pioneered the development of commercial automated robotic astronomical telescopes in the mid-1990s. OMI products currently serve education and research programs that operate at observatory sites in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

Today we continue enhancing the capabilities and precision of our telescope systems by developing new systems using the latest technologies in materials, electronics and software.
