StockerYale to Supply Defense Lasers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SALEM, N.H., April 20 -- StockerYale Inc. announced it has received an order from BAE Systems to supply lasers used in the US Army's advanced threat infrared countermeasure (ATIRCM) system, designed to protect military aircraft from infrared-guided missiles.

The company is also developing a customized laser for a missile countermeasure system for commercial planes under a recent contract received from the Nashua, N.H.-based Information & Electronic Warfare Systems (IEWS) business unit of BAE. This commercial missile defense system is an adaptation of the ATIRCM system concept. BAE is one of three companies awarded a contract from the Department of Homeland Security to determine the feasibility of adapting the military missile-defense system for commercial planes. If the systems can be adapted, design contracts will be awarded to one or two of the companies to build and test prototypes.

StockerYale makes structured light lasers, LEDs, fiber optic and fluorescent illumination technologies and specialty optical fiber, phase masks and diffractive optics for machine vision, telecommunications, aerospace, defense and security, utilities, industrial inspection and medical markets.
