Waterloo, Canada – May 8, 2019 – Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE: TDY] company and global leader in digital imaging, is pleased to announce their participation in the Large-Scale Infrared Imaging Sensors Project that has been awarded the NSERC Synergy Award for Innovation - Small and Medium-Sized Businesses by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
Teledyne DALSA worked with Université de Sherbrooke research professors Dr. Paul Charette, senior researcher Serge Charlebois, Luc Fréchette and Dominique Drouin, as well as with three researchers at École Polytechnique de Montréal to achieve an innovative low cost process for manufacturing high-performance thermal imaging sensors on a large scale.
"This thermal camera development project marked a turning point for Teledyne DALSA on several levels. At the technological level, this project has allowed us to make significant progress at a pace that would not have been possible without this collaboration with both universities. The fact of bringing together specialized personnel from different backgrounds and working in complementary sectors has made possible real innovations that have led to the development of technologies and products that are truly differentiated in the market as much by their performance as by their manufacturing cost, “ said Claude Jean, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Teledyne DALSA. “At the level of innovation capacity, this project paved the way for a new research and development approach at Teledyne DALSA. In fact, since the successes of this project, we have adapted our internal structure to base our future developments more and more on the same collaborative approach with universities,"
The Synergy Awards for Innovation recognize research and development partnerships in natural sciences and engineering between universities and Canadian companies. The project developed over 5 years, from 2013 to 2018, with a total budget of approximately $4 million in cash (and an equivalent amount in kind) from an NSERC RDC grant (Research and Cooperative Development), the MiQro Innovation Collaborative Center (C2MI), UdeS, Prompt-Québec, Mitacs, and Teledyne DALSA.
