About Us

Copious Imaging LLC

Copious Imaging was formed in December of 2017 as a spin-off of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory. The company was initiated to rapidly commercialize a disruptive new infrared imaging technology that was developed over the last 10 years at MIT-LL, to meet urgent needs of the United States Department of Defense. The inventors and engineering team was led the development of Digital-Pixel Focal Plane Array (DFPA) and Wide-area Motion Imaging (WAMI) technology including the Wide-area Infrared Surveillance with Persistence (WISP) sensor for base protection and C-sUAS prototyping at MIT-LL.  They now form the core team at Copious.
