Attollo Engineering Chooses LightPath’s Freeform Optics For Use In Its LiDAR Products

CAMARILLO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 30, 2022 / Attollo Engineering (, a leader in innovative infrared systems for imaging and laser detection, today announced a collaboration with LightPath Technologies Inc. ( (NASDAQ:LPTH) for the design and supply of innovative freeform optical components for use in Attollo’s LiDAR products.

Attollo’s line of Laser Rangefinders and LiDAR products provide fast measurement with high accuracy and precision, in an ultra-compact package. These devices, typically used with fast moving drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), allow measurements of distance and obstacle detection on-the-fly, providing reliable data for autonomous drone systems.

Michael MacDougal, President and CEO of Attollo Engineering commented, “Partnering with LightPath to integrate their molded freeform optics in our system allows us to achieve optimum performance, while minimizing the number of optical components in our systems. Their optics reduce cost and weight of our systems, while at the same time, improving transmission efficiency. LightPath’s established precision molding technology will further allow us to scale production quickly by leveraging their high-volume manufacturing capacity. We believe LightPath is the perfect partner for our LIDAR needs.”
