Inc., a nanotechnology company specializing in the commercialization of
quantum dot semiconductor nanocrystals, today announced the formation of a new
business unit, NightMarker, dedicated to night vision applications for military,
government and security customers. NightMarker is one of three business units
that comprise Evident Technologies, joining the Life Science and LEDs units.
"Our core technology enables products in many different markets that address
drastically different customer needs", stated Clinton Ballinger, Ph.D.
and CEO of Evident Technologies. "We have established an entire brand of
NightMarker® products that bring advanced nanotechnology to our military
and security customers. Now these customers can go directly to the NightMarker
website for their night vision applications."
Evident Technologies uses novel nano-sized materials to enable new products
in applications from life science to LEDs to energy. The unique properties of
these nanotechnology materials can enhance the performance of existing night
vision products and enable completely new applications.
"The technology that the NightMarker team at Evident is developing addresses
some important needs of today's war-fighter," stated Lt. Gen. (retired)
John Caldwell. "I have seen the utility of the NightMarker® Combat
ID product, known as White Light Technology, for night time applications first
hand and the military is rightfully very interested in seeing it deployed."
"We have developed capabilities for the war-fighter, many already off-the-shelf,
that can be used to assist in Combat Identification, Tagging, Tracking and Locating
and generally to enhance situational awareness during nighttime operations.",
said Eva Sbardella, Director of Business Development for NightMarker. "Customers
in all branches of the military use night vision technology to perform mission
critical tasks. As a business unit dedicated to meeting the needs of the war-fighter,
NightMarker focuses on products that assist in clearing up the battlespace and
may help increase the effectiveness of those missions."
