Invent Your Future in advanced photonic technology. Growing from its Bell Labs roots, LGS is the successor to the former Lucent Government Solutions business unit LGS was acquired by CACI in March of 2019, and is now proud to be a part of CACI’s Ever Vigilant team dedicated to meeting our nation’s most critical missions in photonic technology and free-space optical (FSO) laser communications.
The Mission: Our Photonics team's mission is to help scientists discover biohazards, support intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, and to protect soldiers from explosive devices.
Our Impact: We are changing the technical landscape. We break technical barriers and challenge the status quo! Some of the main application areas we focus on include:
Free Space Optical Communications: We have extensive technical expertise in the areas of high-power optical amplifiers, modems, terminals, and end-to-end systems for free-space optical communication systems in space and other challenging environments.
Remote Optical Sensing: We develop and deliver custom laser transmitters for LIDAR, remote chemical-sensing, targeting, and other high-power laser applications!
Optical Signal Processing: Our technology enables optical-domain signal processing in custom, photonic-integrated-circuits, and nonlinear optical fibers for both digital and RF analog applications.
Why Work With Us: When you join the Photonics team, you will work on multiple facets of exploiting the generation, detection, and modulation of light for imaging, advanced communications, and sensing systems. You might find yourself designing custom optical fibers, new lasers and amplifiers, high-speed optical transmitters, and ultra-sensitive receivers, or integrated optical circuits. It takes a creative, technical, and dedicated individual to think outside the box as we discover new laser technologies!
The sky is not the limit when you join us! Our entrepreneurial environment fosters your best ideas and allows you to build your career to fit your creativity. We’re always looking for the best and brightest to join our ranks and share the fun.
CACI is a place where stability and growth are offered every day. The secret to our success is CACI's vibrant culture and strong foundation of good character - firmly based on ethics, integrity, and doing the right thing.
