Faced with a specific engineering problem? Need to determine the feasibility of an optics development project? RPO offers a fixed price, low risk way to start.
Speed the time from design to production with the RPO Discovery Service. Our fixed price, low risk discovery service can help to:
- Troubleshoot a lens or lens assembly design
- Access top-quality optical engineering talent
- Design for manufacturability
Here’s how our Discovery Service works
Give us 20 hours to investigate your project. We’ll give you a detailed report of our analysis, along with recommended solutions, and possible implementation paths if you need more assistance with the project. We may even be able to provide a completed optical design that allows you to proceed without further assistance.
And if you do want us to continue assisting with the project, we’ll provide you with a cost and schedule estimate for completion at our standard engineering rates.
