Device-ALab, a company specializing in infrared camera cores, joined the Photonis group on Friday 5 March. This transaction allows Device-ALab to benefit from the strategic, commercial and operational support of the Photonis group. Device-ALab’s activity confirms Photonis’s desire to expand into new commercial markets and to diversify its product offering.

Device-ALab’s know-how is focused on infrared imaging, very high-speed data conversion, analogue sensor electronics, interfaces and communication protocols in imaging.

The markets and applications using Device-ALab technology are as varied as the markets where Photonis has a presence: defense, smart cities (urban traffic control, presence control in buildings), security (firefighters, police, health (tumor detection), industry, industrial inspection, drones and leisure, etc.

Device-ALab and Photonis, partner companies for several years, are already collaborating on joint projects of fusion between thermal and digital IL. They also share the same values as innovation through R&D, development through export, service to our Forces. The acquisition of Device-ALab know-how had therefore become obvious to Photonis.
