Defense Applications

Reliability and performance in extreme conditions. Maximum efficiency, long lifetimes, and stable performance in harsh conditions like extreme temperatures, and heavy vibration. In critical missions across the globe, Sheaumann has time-tested solutions for ranging and illumination applications. Our direct diode lasers can be used to sense suspected minefields, provide night vision, and aid simulation exercises. As a trusted supplier, we are FAR 52.204-21 and DFARS 252.204-7012 compliant with CMMC readiness level 3. Our US-based manufacturing facility has a secure, dedicated DoD cleanroom.

Sheaumann Laser can offer laser diodes within very tight tolerances (+/-3nm) and due to our in-house foundry capabilities, we can grow custom wavelengths within the 780-1710 wavelength range. Need 888nm for your specific application? Yes, we can do that! By manipulating some of the many fabrication processes on even a molecular level, we can tailor laser diode characteristics for optimal performance within your system. Since each wafer yields thousands of laser diode chips, we can easily scale up to large production once your product takes off.

Sheaumann offers continuous wave (CW) Diode lasers from 780-1710 with output power up to 30W in a variety of mounts and packages.

Case Study


The MIR-Pic, a diode-pumped 2.94μm quasi CW Er:YAG laser in a 126mm hermetically sealed windowed package, was the first of its kind and a breakthrough in DPSS laser technology.


Optics and lasers are at the forefront of modern military applications, and semiconductor laser diodes are some of the most compact and efficient types available. Our ability to design, process, and package our laser diodes in-house, along with our commitment to data security and compliance makes us an ideal partner.
