As light travels fast , sees much and is non-invasive, it has may uses in innovative defense and military applications.

The military relies heavily on the optical spectrum for sensing, mapping and identifying enemy intent over large distances. Photonics can provide the military with higher quality sensing and communications devices.

We offer a full range of lasers and photonic solutions for defense and military applications such as laser range-finding, illumination, laser designation, sensing, defensive infrared countermeasures and direct energy weapons.
