LGS Innovations has won a $250,000 contract to research and develop a photonic source for laser technology used at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
EOS Photonics, Sandia National Laboratories, Research Triangle Park and Boston University will work with LGS toward a larger development effort LGS said Tuesday.
The team intends to develop the photonic source with the goal of finding new methods to manufacture component technologies.
“We are proud to be a part of the development of a new type of laser,” LGS Innovations CEO Kevin Kelly said, adding the laser is intended for multiple defense applications.
LGS has worked with AFRL since 2008.
AFRL is one of four Defense Department computing facilities that work to develop and consolidate technologies used in military operations.
