Company History

Nutron­ics, Inc. was founded in 1995. Nutron­ics, Inc.’s founder and prin­ci­pal from 1995–2007 (Directed Energy Pro­fes­sional Soci­ety Fel­low Mr. Richard B. Holmes) played a crit­i­cal role in devel­op­ment and suc­cess­ful exe­cu­tion of mul­ti­ple large scale Directed Energy and High Energy Laser pro­grams. Mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tion tools devel­oped by Nutron­ics, Inc. were instru­men­tal in eval­u­a­tion of new inno­v­a­tive meth­ods and in iden­ti­fy­ing and elim­i­nat­ing or mit­i­gat­ing com­plex pro­gram risk areas.

In 2007, Mr. Jef­frey D. Barchers joined Nutron­ics, Inc. The com­pany began to grow rapidly dur­ing this period, win­ning mul­ti­ple gov­ern­ment con­tracts and defin­ing a vision to develop electro-optical sys­tem solu­tions to the nation’s most chal­leng­ing prob­lems prin­ci­pally in the area of laser prop­a­ga­tion through tur­bu­lence. We rec­og­nized that there was a tremen­dous mis­con­cep­tion related to the capa­bil­ity of the state of the art in adap­tive opti­cal (AO) sys­tems out­side of the area of astron­omy and a need to develop high per­for­mance AO sys­tem solu­tions that offer robust per­for­mance in demand­ing tur­bu­lence con­di­tions. This has led to tech­nol­ogy efforts and offer­ings in four pri­mary areas: (1) High per­for­mance AO sys­tem solu­tions for appli­ca­tions with a coop­er­a­tive or point source tar­get includ­ing Free Space Opti­cal (FSO) Com­mu­ni­ca­tion; (2) High per­for­mance AO sys­tem solu­tions for appli­ca­tions with non-cooperative extended tar­gets ; (3) Phased Array beam con­trol – often viewed as the “holy grail” of high energy laser sys­tem tech­nol­ogy; and (4) Ana­lytic and Diag­nos­tic Sup­port using mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tion tools and / or devel­op­ment of diag­nos­tic sys­tems.
