Resdel Industries, a Newport Beach electronics firm, said Tuesday it has formed a subsidiary called Resdel Electro-Optics Systems to develop recently acquired laser technology for military communications.
Resdel Electro-Optics has bought licensing rights to the laser technology from AccuLase Inc. of San Diego, which is developing it for use in the medical and semiconductor industries.
The Resdel subsidiary will seek to develop the technology for military communications in strategic missions and in space, according to Bruce G. Rossiter, chief financial officer of Resdel Industries.
Rossiter said the subsidiary is pursuing development contracts from the military and other sources, but no contracts have been announced. AccuLase will be hired by Resdel Electro-Optics as a development subcontractor, he said.
