ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LightPath Technologies, Inc.

LightPath continues to develop its thermal imaging business and is currently in the later stages of upgrading manufacturing capabilities at its Orlando factory to support the anticipated growth in its thermal infrared product lines. Sales and technical teams have been in contact with many large OEMs who purchase infrared optics in this space and LightPath has received initial orders from three such OEMs for prototypes of optical assemblies for their respective thermal imaging systems. LightPath's optics provide significant material cost advantages for its customers through the use of chalcogenide glass compared to the materials that are currently in use today for such systems. LightPath continues to see significant growth opportunities for this business and expects significant orders from these and other customers in the second half of fiscal 2013. 

In addition, the infrared development program with Raytheon Vision Systems continues to progress and work is now shifting from producing initial prototypes to developing the necessary production-scale cost reductions to meet the program's cost and performance goals. With a substantial portion of the investment phase now completed, core manufacturing techniques and resources are now in place with significant improvements having been made in the protective coatings for the lenses. As the cost reductions are developed from this work, they are being implemented into LightPath's proprietary process.

Jim Gaynor, President and Chief Executive Officer of LightPath, commented, "We are excited by the growing acceptance of the infrared products we offer as we continue to successfully penetrate this $150 million addressable market serving a diverse customer base. In particular, we see our infrared business being driven by demand for our quantum cascade laser lenses, with interest from customers in various subsectors, such as infrared countermeasures, gas analysis and spectroscopy."
