Artemis Optical and MTI to develop hybrid coating
Artemis Optical has signed a three year business development and technology partnership with Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (MTI) to develop a hybrid coating for the defence industry.
The link up will see the two companies harness both of their innovative thin film coating technology, to create a brand new, hybrid meta filtering solution to combat laser threats for the users of periscopes and sighting systems in armoured vehicles.
It is envisaged that the combination of Artemis’ expertise in thin film deposition and MTI’s patented metamaterial technology will lead the companies to be able to offer variations and enhancement to laser protection filters that have not been possible before.
Jamie Pindard, Sales Director of Artemis Optical, said: “We’re very excited about this high-tech collaboration. Both companies have already proved their technology in their respective fields. The potential of these new hybrid solutions could prove to be a step change in the way that the industry considers the possibilities of laser protection.”
George Palikaras, Founder and CEO of MTI said, “We look forward to combine MTI’s strength in flexible, large scale filters with Artemis Optical, who is an established leading supplier in optical thin film coatings, to develop the next generation of laser filters. The combination of our technologies will offer unique capabilities for the defence industry globally.”
