Our mission at DRS Daylight Solutions is to be the leading provider of best-in-class, mid-infrared sources and systems for defense, commercial, and research markets. Our global leadership position in advanced, mid-IR technology means that DRS Daylight customers benefit from a sustainable, competitive advantage in molecular detection and imaging applications.
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:
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.
DRS Daylight Solutions pioneered the commercialization of QCLs chiefly to develop new technologies and products that can benefit society in meaningful ways.
