Company Overview

In 2005, three high-tech entrepreneurs founded DRS Daylight Solutions in San Diego, California, with the goal of developing breakthrough technologies and products around the company’s core technology: mid-IR quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). Since then, the company has introduced three groundbreaking products:
  • The world’s first broadly tunable, mid-IR laser system for scientific research
  • The world’s first semiconductor-based laser for protecting aircraft against shoulder-fired missiles
  • The world’s first mid-IR, laser-based microscope for real-time biochemical imaging and materials analysis

QCL technology provides a versatile platform for product development, enabling DRS Daylight to serve a wide range of industries. DRS Daylight Solutions and its wholly-owned subsidiary, DRS Daylight Defense, which delivers classified, military-hardened products to the defense industry, are both advanced in manufacturing capabilities.

With a highly experienced team—and field-proven, best-in-class product performance—we stand ready to help you shape your mid-IR application. Please call us at +1-858-432-7500 or contact us to learn more.
