Ion Optics changes name and location

March 1, 2007
March 1, 2007, Billerica, MA--ICx Technologies today announced that its Ion Optics business unit is changing its name to coincide with the unit's move to a new facility. ICx Ion Optics will now conduct business as ICx Precision Photonics to more accurately reflects the business unit's core competency in the development, manufacturing and marketing of next generation infrared (IR) wavelength tuned optical devices.

March 1, 2007, Billerica, MA--ICx Technologies today announced that its Ion Optics business unit is changing its name to coincide with the unit's move to a new facility. ICx Ion Optics will now conduct business as ICx Precision Photonics to more accurately reflects the business unit's core competency in the development, manufacturing and marketing of next generation infrared (IR) wavelength tuned optical devices.

Ion Optics joined ICx Technologies in 2005. Since that time, the unit's product development plans have accelerated. Under its new name, ICx Precision Photonics looks to build on the growth it has seen in the past two years for its line of IR light emitting sources and integrated IR sub-systems. These devices are successfully deployed both with the military as advanced friend or foe identifiers and in industrial gas sensing systems.

Originally based in Waltham, MA, ICx Precision Photonics has moved into a new facility in nearby Billerica, MA. The new 20,000 square foot facility will provide additional space for enhanced research and development efforts and increased production capabilities. "As a growing part of ICx Technologies, our development efforts expanded beyond the capacity of our old facility," said David Smith, president of ICx Precision Photonics. "The new facility provides the space we have needed to expand our production and development operations."
