FPC Members Take Half of Space Florida-Israel Innovation Partnership 2021 Awards

In mid-July, Everix Optical Filters and LightPath Technologies – two FPC companies were awarded industrial research and development funding that is tied to the Space Florida-Israel Innovation Partnership Program. The $2 million annual recurring joint fund supports research, development, and commercialization of aerospace and technology projects that benefit both Israel and Florida.  Twenty joint proposals were submitted by teams of for-profit companies in Florida and Israel in this eighth round of awards. Everix Optical Filters (Orlando, Florida) in collaboration with SolCold (Israel) proposed innovative nano-particle materials using a dichroic filter to cool down objects using sunlight.  With this award, Everix will focus on optimizing the Everix production processes to create the filter-size needed. LightPath Technologies (Orlando, Florida) worked with RP Optical Lab (Israel) in a project to develop and design an Opto-Electronics Thermal Imaging (OETI) module installed on Nano / Micro satellites. These FPC members were two of the four teams that were awarded funding this year.  Check out the article here: https://bit.ly/3eELdrx
