Advanced Coatings and Metamaterials/Plasmonics
Laser Eye Protection
Transparent photonic bandgap structures have been developed that are capable of protecting the vision of pilots and soldiers from friendly and hostile laser threats. Unlike current solutions, these coatings offer superior color neutrality and higher visible light transmission, a requirement for both warfighter operations and commercial applications including medical laser eye protection.
Directed Energy Sensors and Instrumentation
AEgis has designed, built and tested novel sensor arrays that can withstand the direct effects of High Energy Laser (HEL) weapon systems to measure irradiance, beam profile and spot size at the target. These sensors and accompanying instrumentation suites have been flown on various platforms to perform in-situ testing of HEL weapon systems.
