Applied Energetics Completes Acquisition Of Assets Of AOS
Applied Energetics has announced that the Company has completed the acquisition of certain assets of Applied Optical Sciences, an innovator in developing technologies and intellectual property related to the application of optical physics in a broad range of areas, including photonics and advanced Ultra-Short Pulse (“USP”) laser development.
Founded by Dr. Stephen McCahon in April 2010, AOS is a privately held corporation located in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. McCahon is also an original co-founder of Applied Energetics and will serve as its Chief Scientist and full-time consultant to Applied Energetics.
“We're excited about the assets we purchased from AOS, which will immediately broaden our product offerings and accelerate our innovation in the rapidly growing area of ultra-short pulse lasers,” said Gregory J. Quarles, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Applied Energetics. “This transaction also demonstrates our commitment to driving shareholder value by re-establishing our relationship with U.S. Department of Defense, as AOS was under separate co-development contracts with two defense contractors involving specific areas of directed energy and rapidly evolving advanced optical physics-based technologies. These contracts are transitioning to AE and we now have an integrated team working with the customers. Finally, the combination adds depth to our management and technical team which will be invaluable as we seek to win more opportunities with existing and new potential customers.”
AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May
The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.
In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT
and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.
The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.
Key elements of the online summit:
- Covering key topics of the industries
- Live 3 hour online summit
- 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
- Recorded product demos
- Live audience questions
- Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
- Video panel sessions
- Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
- Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
- After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365
Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
