Discover Our Technology

A bee's compound eye has 5000 ommatidia. Using them, it is able to fly at driving speed with sufficient accuracy to avoid predators and land on a tiny flower miles away from its hive. Our technology mimics bees to deliver extraordinary LIDAR performance.

Unprecedented Resolution

For the first time, a LIDAR system with an image quality matching that of a camera (MPix).

Long Range

Our sensors are sensitive to a single photon, providing a range that extends to the limits of physics.

Reliable, Compact & Inexpensive

Our sensors are manufactured using standard technologies that do not need complex optics or assembly steps.

Inherently Eye-Safe

Our ability to illuminate the scene continuously without scanning allows for a major increase in the number of photons available while retaining unconditional eye safety.

We are an experienced group of entrepreneurs, scientists and business leaders passionate about improving the world through technology.
