Profile Summary

Dr. Cantey was a scientist at Optical Sciences Corporation for 16 years. He primarily won and led several successful Phase I and Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) projects relating to new infrared sources, lasers, and advanced optical technologies for the defense Test and Evaluation community. He has extensive experience in Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulations for the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC). Significant research activities included mid-infrared lasers and infrared supercontinuum generation for the simulation of high apparent temperature blackbody radiation.

He also serves as the CEO and Chairman of the Board of the Huntsville Electro-Optical Society (HEOS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional organization dedicated to promoting and facilitating the knowledge of optics and photonics to its members and the public. We believe optics and photonics can make the world a better place and alleviate some of the challenges in the human condition.

Core Excellencies:
Creativity, optimism, vision, writing, optical alignment, and opto-mechanical design.
Other Capabilities include:
Leadership, research, development, and optical sensors and systems; biofluorescent illumination and microscopy; THAAD
seeker test and analysis; laser systems design, analysis, and operation; semi-
active laser seeker test and analysis; semiconductor laser characterization; optical
scanning; infrared solar testing and simulator
