Daylight Solutions demonstrates sensor technology for remote detection of chemical agents, explosives and precursors


Sep 20, 2007 – Poway, CA (September 20, 2007) – Daylight Solutions, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced molecular detection and imaging solutions in the mid-infrared, has demonstrated its core technology and IP for detecting various chemical agents, explosives, and explosive precursors. Results for detecting trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide and acetone were recently presented at the SPIE Europe Security and Defence Conference.

The combination of Daylight’s compact, portable, broadly-tunable laser technology with their expertise in high-speed, low noise optical receivers, control electronics, DSP and pattern recognition software provides enabling performance for future sensor platforms. This capability for true “fingerprint” detection is now available to OEM customers not only for security and defense applications, but also those in environmental, chemical, petrochemical, health and safety, industrial emissions, food and beverage quality control and pharmaceutical process control.
