LightPath, Raytheon partner for low-cost molded IR optics development

  • 26-Mar-2012 03:59 EDT

LightPath Technologies entered into a $1.1 million research and development contract with Raytheon Vision Systems for the development of low-cost manufacturing processes for IR optics. The award is in support of Raytheon Vision Systems' $13.4 million DARPA, Low Cost Thermal Imaging Manufacturing (LCTI-M) program, which intends to develop a wafer scale manufacturing process that will result in a camera on a chip, making thermal imagers affordable, accessible, and ubiquitous to every warfighter. LightPath is currently targeting multiple high growth markets and applications with this technology such as IR countermeasures, thermography, gas sensing, and commercial night vision systems.
