Mar 2007
Vision systems company Irvine Sensors Corp. of Costa Mesa, Calif., announced Wednesday that it has received a contract worth approximately $1.1 million from an OEM to develop an acoustic imaging sensor for a commercial industrial application. The development is scheduled for completion within 10 months. "Our long development history related to sensors for military applications has equipped us with extensive expertise regarding numerous sensor types, including acoustic imaging devices that create pictures from reflected sound. That expertise has now led to a funded entry into a possible commercial market. If this initiative leads to a successful venture, it may open the door for our entry into other commercial sensor markets," said Irvine Sensors CEO John Carson.
