Quantel Laser (Paris, France) has been awarded a $7-million, multi-year contract by a Tier 1 defense contractor to supply lasers to be built into a wing-mounted fighter aircraft pod, such as on the French Dassault Rafale fighter. The military aircraft lasers will provide critical telemetry as well as target designation functions.

Quantel designs and manufactures high-power, solid-state lasers for scientific, industrial, military, and medical applications. This contract covers a specific production series of lasers and follows Quantel’s successful development of the compact, ruggedized laser source as well as delivery of several earlier production runs.

“Over the years, Quantel has built a strong reputation with the top tier defense contractors,” commented Patrick Maine, President of Quantel’s Industrial and Scientific Laser Division, “These types of applications are very demanding, requiring lasers that can operate in harsh and widely varying environmental conditions. Of course, this is one of our specialties at Quantel.” Quantel designs and manufactures high-power, solid-state lasers for scientific, industrial, military, and medical applications.
