MAC is the premier company in the United States for the development of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) and related optical systems for atmospheric measurement and holds patents that increase the performance and efficiency of these instruments to unprecedented levels. These capabilities have resulted in hardened systems with the size, weight, and power characteristics that enable operation on demanding aircraft, spacecraft and ground platforms.
The company is organized along core business areas that are managed as Business Units. These include Atmospheric LIDAR Systems to measure atmospheric parameters and constituents from the ground, aircraft, and space, enhancing the accuracy of weather forecasts, aiding weather-dependent military operations, and improving the performance of aircraft (military and civilian) and weapon systems; Optical Diagnostics for both remote sensing and in-situ applications, including Chemical/Biological/Radiological/Nuclear (CBRN) and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection, aerodynamic testing, micro-fluidics, and measurement of spectral signatures and cross-sections of biological simulants and agents; Data Exploitation to solve complex problems in data mining, 2-D and 3-D image processing, pattern recognition, and machine learning; and Mechanical Systems for autonomous vehicles operating in space, terrestrial, and marine environments.
On the products side, we have just increased our manufacturing capability to meet the demands for our wind LIDAR and other optical products. We invite you to explore our website and to call on us for your advanced development and product needs.
The TheiaVu™ Series is a range of benchtop inspection systems that allow the user to take a wide variety of measurements, and to record repeatable, reliable data to improve processes.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
Dr. David Dung
We spoke with University of Bonn spin-off Midel Photonics, a start-up company whose laser beam shaping technology is hoping to sharpen up the laser industry.
Matthias Sachsenhauser, Ph.D.
Following Laser World of Photonics 2022, we spoke with Matthias Sachsenhauser from Hamamatsu Photonics about the role of laser-driven light sources in the future of the photonics sector.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
