Firefly Photonics has developed infrared semiconductor photonic/optoelectronic devices used for thermal scene generation to test and calibrate infrared detector arrays. The company is leading in innovation and performance of MIR light sources, waveguides, and detectors, and, through partnerships with Freedom Photonics, to provide highly compact and field-deployable gas sensors. Additionally, it has a contract with Department of Defense for the manufacturing of IR cameras that are used to calibrate IR sensor installed on fighter jets. The company has possible interest in manufacturing infrared lasers.
