Daylight Defense, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daylight Solutions, Inc. (www.daylightsolutions.com), announced today their selection by the U.S. Army to develop next-generation high-power ultraviolet (UV) laser capability to support future Defense applications.
The award was made under the U.S. Army Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, which provides high-tech U.S. businesses (with less than 500 employees) the opportunity to provide innovative research and development solutions in response to critical Army needs.
According to a recent solicitation by the U.S. Army, “the Army is interested in laser sources in the near-UV for applications such as Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) and other applications for helicopter survivability.” Additional applications of the technology include battlefield awareness, trace detection using LIDAR backscatter and/or bio-fluorescence, and data storage.
“We are grateful that the U.S. Government has entrusted Daylight to develop a next generation capability for future airborne military laser systems,” said Dr. Timothy Day, CEO for Daylight Solutions. “The development of compact, ruggedized UV laser modules fits well within our product roadmap to bring advanced capabilities to the warfighter.”
Daylight has leveraged their patented quantum cascade laser (QCL) technologies to create a line of military laser products that provide high-power and multi-color capabilities. The company’s modular open architecture approach enables significant reductions in cycle-time from design to deployment, minimizing costs, while simultaneously providing improvements in reliability and lifetime over existing technologies.

Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud cre...

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at Dev...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
