Mid-infrared laser light is providing game-changing solutions to molecular spectroscopy, detection and imaging challenges in markets such as: Defense & Security; Life Sciences; Research; and Industrial Process Control. As a mid-IR technology pioneer, Daylight Solutions has delivered more mid-IR systems to more applications world-wide than anyone else. With a highly experienced team—and field-proven, best-in-class product performance—Daylight stands ready to help you shape your mid-IR application.
The Commander’s Tactical Pointer (COMTAP™) provides long range Mid-Wave InfraRed and/or Long-Wave InfraRed pointing and marking capabilities for ground forces. Applications such as target hand-off can be conducted with a portable, handheld laser pointer that operates with airborne and soldier-carried thermal imaging cameras to enhance mission effectiveness.
The INCA™ multi-spectral beacon provides increased survivability for applications that include personnel rescue, combat identification/IFF and situational awareness. These devices provide operation in both MWIR and LWIR thermal bands, IR band, and the visible band. INCA™ provides user-selection of any or all colors and has greater than 3 km range capability.
Solaris™ is the most mature of Daylight’s family of high power, military ruggedized laser systems for DIRCM applications. Solaris™ has been adopted as the laser source for Northrop Grumman’s CIRCM solution, their 5th generation IRCM technology for warfighter protection. Solaris™ provides fast, simultaneous breaklock jamming with high power in multiple colors to defeat current and future threats. Its solid state design provides high reliability with all-weather, all-altitude operation.
Now in its 3rd generation, Daylight’s JammIR™ Series A laser system has been designed to support distributed aperture infrared countermeasures (DAIRCM) system architectures. The Series A laser systems have been flight tested on several aircraft, including the MH-60 and AH-1Z. JammIR™ Series A laser systems integrate a 6-port optical switch that allows the output to be coupled to any individual port within 0.1 seconds. Each port has been designed to mate with a military ruggedized fiber optic cable, which is used to distribute the laser output throughout the aircraft.
