CALABASAS, Calif., Sept. 14 -- Sabeus Inc., a manufacturer of acoustic sensing and fiber optic systems for telecommunications, industrial and defense applications, today announced the acquisition of laser developer Aragon Technologies Inc. of Van Nuys, Calif. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Aragon Technologies was founded in 2002 by Al Garden and Armando Montalvo to develop a narrow line width, low phase-noise laser that is immune to the frequency output instability inherent to all lasers operating in harsh environments. Garden serves as Sabeus' vice president of operations, responsible for manufacturing, and Montalvo leads the company's research and development program as vice president of engineering.
"Unstable, expensive laser sources have long been a hindrance to the development of cost-effective sensing solutions for oilfield and military applications," said Andre de Fusco, Sabeus' president and CEO. "We will tightly integrate Aragon's technology with our surface readout units which are deployed to interrogate Sabeus' fiber optic towed arrays, perimeter security and subsurface sensing systems."
