Research Institute To Commercialize Machine Vision Imaging Technology

RTI International, a nonprofit research institute, launched a spin-out venture company, SWIR Vision Systems Inc., to commercialize breakthrough infrared camera technology developed at RTI for applications in the industrial machine vision, security systems, agricultural, automotive, and other global imaging markets. RTI’s patented infrared camera technology, based on novel and commercially scalable image sensor materials, was advanced with a combination of grant support from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and internal development, management, and financial support from RTI. The technology was licensed exclusively to SWIR Vision Systems, which plans to commercialize its Acuros SWIR-band cameras in 2018 and manufacture the cameras at its Research Triangle Park, NC operations center. 

 

George Wildeman, a photonics industry executive and entrepreneur with over 25 years of technology commercialization experience, has been named Chief Executive Officer of SWIR Vision Systems.  Ethan Klem, PhD, will transition from RTI to become SWIR’s Chief Technology Officer.  Klem led the innovative research and development program for the sensors during his tenure at RTI and will continue to spearhead the technical program with the new company.
