I still don't understand how we lost .04. They are selling HSOR, ODiSi, and 35% growth in THz, along with revenue saved for accountants with the merger. And these idiots lost .04?
Does anyone know where LUNA fits into the composite market. I note that our HD-FOS employs optical frequency domain relectometry. SPIE had a conference on this topic and noted the following companies are engaged in this niche. Anyone have any insight on where we stack up, who are main competitiors are, and any other metic to figure this out?
• AFL • Nufern
• attocube • Pure Photonics, LLC
• BaySpec, Inc. • PVP Advanced EO Systems, Inc.
• Cybel, LLC • Reynard Corporation
• New England Optical Systems • Sinclair Manufacturing Co.
• NiCoForm, Inc. • Siskiyou Corporation

Sell the company? The merger is not even a year old, let's see what they can do. Next year at this time if they haven't produced, then your comment might make sense, but it's premature now.
I think that Richard, ie numbrcruncher is either sour on the past management and won't give the new guys a chance or he joined the lawsuit that was filed. I know he was thinking about it.
Luna coating provides radiation protection in space

Charge Dissipating Transparent Conformal Coating for Spacecraft Electronics
Space mission planners are continually striving to push technologies further to explore new and environmentally harsh regions of the universe. Associated space systems must meet their performance requirements regardless of environmental conditions and their engineering design and construction are paramount to their success. A possible future mission to explore Jupiter’s moon Europa, for example, would encounter radiation levels seven times greater than Earth’s geostationary orbit. In addition to the Jovian and other outer planet environments, highly charged environments can also exist at Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), and Polar Low Earth Orbit (PLEO) owing to solar winds/storms and trapped radiation belts. There is therefore a need for advanced materials to protect sensitive spacecraft electronics from harsh energetic conditions across a variety of different mission platforms. To serve this need, Luna has developed a charge dissipating conductive conformal coating to enable greater radiation hardening and electrostatic discharge (ESD) mitigation for spacecraft electronics.
The coating is deemed LUNA XP-CD-B and was developed through a NASA STTR Phase I project (Contract #NNX11C129P). The coating meets the required volume resistivity of 1×108 – 1×1012 ohm-cm for ESD protection across a wide temperature range, is optically transparent, inspectable under ultraviolet light, easy to apply and repair, low outgassing, and has excellent adhesion and flexibility. The coating offers performance properties of both common conformal coating protection and radiation hardening through ESD mitigation. The addition of ESD protection in a single conformal coating gives spacecraft designers a new tool to protect sensitive electronics from
He will be gone after the first election. Really stupid they allowed him to stay, but at least he is only one vote. The other two API directors have the support of Risser and Williamson, so they will be an asset to us. I just wish the merger would occur so we can see this start to get back to a reasonable valuation.
we have wanted to get rid of the Filtertech idiots and Kurtz for years. This is great news!
most likely this relates to the contract of $1.4 million last week, but maybe not. I'm trying to find out.
