Open Photonics Partners with Lockheed Martin
May 2013
ORLANDO, Fla., May 1, 2013 — Open Photonics Inc. (OPI) has partnered with Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., to research emerging photonics-related technologies and innovations related to Lockheed’s electro-optics products.

OPI recently introduced the Photonic Horizons program to accelerate early-stage product development, innovation and R&D for global companies that seek photonics-based solutions as part of their strategy and product roadmap. The grant program is backed by a technical and business advisory board.

“While programs like the SBIR and university tech transfer are very effective, they can be slow and fraught with IP challenges,” said CEO Dr. Jason Eichenholz. “Our new model matches these inventors with potential customers in multiple industries, strengthening innovation pipelines for these companies and providing a framework for these companies to engage researchers in smaller companies and universities.”

Lockheed Martin is the latest in a series of global companies, including VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, that are working with OPI to advance developments in this technology area. (See: Open Photonics, VTT to Commercialize Imaging Tech)
