A joint venture formed between a Dayton and an Israeli company to commercialize a new ultrahigh resolution sensor technology has won a grant from the BIRD (Binational Industrial Research & Development) Foundation.
Dayton-based Stan Solutions and Israel-based Adaptive Imaging have been awarded grant funding of $200,000 for their joint technology commercialization project. Stan Solutions will receive $80,000 and Adaptive will receive $120,000.
The project will be a collaboration to integrate the exceptional camera technology developed by Adaptive with the digital camera processing technology of Stan Solutions for homeland security, law enforcement and other commercial security applications.
“This international partnership is a direct result of our efforts to position Montgomery County and the Dayton Region as unparalleled leaders in sensor and other innovative technology,” said Montgomery County Commission President Debbie Lieberman. “We are proud to work with our partners to foster relationships like this and further the efforts of the Dayton Region Israel Trade Alliance (DRITA) to seek technology and economic development opportunities with Israeli companies that build on our economic strengths; creating jobs and exciting prospects for our citizens.”
The high-resolution, panoramic camera developed by Adaptive Imaging uses sensors to monitor areas up to six miles away. STAN Solutions is expanding the camera’s capabilities by applying its own sensor advancements to the existing product in partnership with IDCAST (Institute for the Development and Commercialization of Advanced Sensor Technology).
The BIRD Foundation's mission is to stimulate, promote and support industrial Research & Development of mutual benefit to the U.S. and Israel.
Montgomery County, the city of Dayton and the Dayton Development Coalition combined to raise private (non-taxpayer) dollars to fund a fulltime trade office in Israel in 2010 to match local aerospace entrepreneurs with Israeli companies working on similar technology advancements.
