Lumistar, Inc. is located in Carlsbad, California and was founded by a group of experienced telemetry engineers who wanted to create a “customer friendly” telemetry company. We appreciate working in the flight test community, and truly enjoy designing, building and supporting the telemetry products we manufacture. We are primarily a hardware company, and strive to make our products as functional and applicable to as wide a range of requirements as we can. While we understand that one size will not fit all, our products can be configured to meet almost all needs. If you do not see the product you need, but something comes close, please contact us to discuss your requirements. To make sure we do not lose focus on supporting our customers, Lumistar is an employee owed company. This means the quality of the product, the ease of use, and the support of products for your mission critical application is our only concern. We make decision based upon what is right for the customer.

These are our tenets:

  • An excellent product for a reasonable price
  • Maintaining parts inventory to allow deliveries to meet your requirements
  • On-time delivery
  • Quality control to ensure reliable operation of our products
  • Support of our products to ensure that you will be a repeat customer.

Lumistar’s primary business expertise is the design and manufacture of board-level telemetry products for PCI and cPCI computer buses as well as products that do not require an OS. VME and ISA legacy products are still supported. Lumistar integrates these boards into rack mount and rugged portable computers create our quick-look telemetry products as well as stand-alone products such as bit synchronizers, telemetry receivers and diversity combiners. Airborne telemetry components are also available including data and video transmitters, bit synchronizers, and receivers.

Lumistar would like to thank the original founders and engineers who created our initial success:  John Reeser,  David Penharlow, Walt Frawley, and Glenn Toennes. We look forward to supporting flight test telemetry in the upcoming decades with our new generation of dedicated personnel with the continuing belief that the Customer is number one and what is good for the customer is good for Lumistar.
