A new $6M military laser contract

These orders are in addition to those already received in 2015, for about $7 million. Total orders for such products therefore currently stand at more than $13 million, to be delivered before the end of 2019, allowing the Group to proceed smoothly with increasing its dedicated production capacity. Quantel has already developed and produced several series of these lasers. They are intended to be integrated in a POD positioned beneath the wings of fighter aircrafts for target designation and telemetry applications. The lasers have been produced for several years for a large equipment manufacturer and can equip in particular the French Rafale aircraft.

Quantel part of the European FULLPHASE project

In the European project FULLPHASE, a portable multiwavelength photoacoustic medical system to be applied for point-of-care early disease detection and optimal treatment monitoring will be developed. The objective is the transition of PA (photoacoustics) imaging from a lab-based technique to a low-cost portable multi wavelength combined PA and US (ultrasound) system. In order to reach that goal, the FULLPHASE partners integrate complementary and specific expertise in diode laser technology, laser beam shaping, ultrasound imaging technology, and system integration. After clinical validation, the FULLPHASE system will be applicable in oncology, rheumatology and for cardio vascular disease.
