    • FLIR laid off about 100 people today from their GS division. Earl Lewis called it during the conference call last Fri. and so it was done.........

    • Aerius Photonics Acquisition was a steal they have a huge product line. The other is a company is in Ventura California. Aerius Photonics specializes in high power VCSELs and large format InGaAs arrays for specialized sensors in defense and industrial requirements. This is one company that seems to know how to win government money like no one I have ever seen. From its press release on the award, the company writes, “Aerius has successfully used its more than 45 SBIR awarded contracts to develop and create innovative products that have been fielded in military applications. Aerius is also transitioning its technology to commercial customers.”

      This is just a startling number. Founded in late 2003, the company has won an average of six SBIRs a year! I do not know the mix of phase I and phase II awards, but this is just remarkable, no matter how you look at it. Its founder Jonathan Geske has also performed impressively.

      As taxpayers, we look to Precision Photonics and Aerius Photonics to contribute more to the economic growth of our country, so we increasingly reap the rewards of the SBIR program. Their success helps ensure that the SBIR program can continue to fund more photonics startups.
