Previously doing business as EPIR Technologies, Inc., Episensors Inc started with a focus on developing infrared materials for the US military and on cutting-edge research for the defense industry in infrared imaging technology based on mercury cadmium telluride (MCT). The same technology that formed the basis for EPIRs breakthrough successes in infrared imaging technology now forms the foundation for Episensors' development of a revolutionary new photovoltaic cell. The company's new infrared materials and device products are aimed at revolutionizing MCT-based infrared technology and providing much needed components for major defense and commercial manufacturers for the production of infrared sensors and imagers at a reduced cost. In particular, Episensors' mission is to develop and sell high-performance, low cost infrared cameras including HgCdTe-based extended short wavelength infrared (eSWIR) cameras. The firm is currently marketing the "Night SWEEP" family of infrared cameras for defense and commercial applications.
