LGS Innovations Awarded Contract For Advanced Electronic Warfare Research

LGS Innovations™, an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE and Euronext Paris: ALU), today announced it has been awarded a $250,000 contract to design a next-generation highly integrated photonic source for the Air Force Research Labs (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

Under the terms of the contract, LGS Innovations’ Government Communications Lab will conduct research to determine the potential advancements in laser technology that can be achieved through a focused, multi-year development effort. The photonic solution will include a roadmap for the development of individual component technologies, as well as for the large-scale fabrication of these components within the U.S.

The work is a prelude to a larger development effort and is in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, Boston University, Research Triangle Park and EOS Photonics.

“Our Applied Research and Technology Team includes the foremost researchers in the science of photonics,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “We are proud to be a part of the development of a new type of laser, which will have a wide range of applications across multiple defense capabilities.”

The AFRL is one of four high-performance computing centers in the Department of Defense, and is committed to leading the discovery, development, and integration of warfighting technologies for U.S. air, space, and cyberspace forces. LGS Innovations has supported the AFRL since 2008.
