Areté Associates, based out of Northridge, California, is a multi-disciplinary group specializing in technologies that primarily contribute to the defense markets. Areté set out to make the ideal source for laser designators, developing the AIRTRAC-LD and AIRTRAC-6M. The AIRTRAC-LD laser is a Mil-Spec DPSS Laser designed for laser designation applications with pulse energies of >50mJ at 1064nm and STANAG 3733 compliancy. These ultra-compact laser designators are ruggedized to ensure reliable performance in some of the harshest operational environments. The lasers employ a novel thermal management design resulting in high efficiency and low SWaP in comparison to other lasers in this class.
Areté provides compact and rugged military compliant DPSS laser systems with high-pulse output energies and short-pulse durations. Areté lasers employ a novel thermal management design resulting in high efficiency and a low SWaP in comparison to other lasers in this class. In addition to bringing outstanding products to the market, Arete is committed to offering a world-class level of quality, customer care and service
