QCL Technology: Protecting Those Who Protect Us

At DRS Daylight Solutions, we believe that a good cause makes a great business. And there’s no better cause than protecting those who protect our lives, safety, and health. Since our founding in 2005, the applications for our quantum cascade laser technology have grown exponentially. Experts have written more than 150 scientific papers about us and published them in peer-reviewed journals that cover applications that include the following:

  • Scientific research
  • Infrared microscopy
  • Molecular detection and imaging
  • Process control
  • Infrared countermeasures

Our technology has been described as “enabling” for its ability to empower customers to develop OEM “sensor engines” uniquely suited to their specific applications. This capability has produced everything from battery operated sensors for hand-held applications to high-power, infrared countermeasures for missile defense. Together, our technology, products, and collaborative approach offer customers next-generation solutions and significant competitive advantages.
