Profile Summary

Jeff Odhner graduated from Ohio State University with a BSEE and the University of Central Florida with an MSEE. He has over 25 years experience in the design and building of electro-optical systems with a career that centered on laser, sensor, and night vision systems. He founded Odhner Holographics in 1983 and continues to operate it part time until 2012 at which time it became a full time business. His career started at a small laser measurement company in Columbus, Ohio. From there he went to Martin Marietta (Lockheed Martin), Westinghouse Electro-Optics (Northrop Grumman) and Sanders Corporation (BAE Systems) designing, building and testing a wide variety of laser and electro-optic sensor systems from UV to the far-IR. At Corning Intellisense, a MEMS company concentrating on telecommunications, he designed and built test stations for evaluating micro-mirror arrays and other MEMS based products. As a senior principal electro-optics systems engineer in the Advanced Technology Group at BAE Systems in Merrimack, New Hampshire, he worked on a space based laser radar, satellite communication systems, and fiber pumped IR lasers. His last employer was Optics 1 where he brought in contract money to support his invention of a long range gunfire ID and position sensor. One of his more notable accomplishments is that Mr. Odhner is the father of two lovely and talented children.
