Founded in 1996, Imperium develops handheld devices that generate real-time, hi-resolution images that are easily understood and interpreted by end users. Headquartered in Beltsville, Maryland, Imperium maintains a full scale manufacturing operation in their 6,000 square foot facility. All engineering and development, manufacturing (including full semi-conductor processing), logistics and general management activities are conducted in our corporate facility. With clients around the world, Imperium is dedicated to delivering products that improve imaging capability and user-friendliness for ultrasound users across a variety of applications. Our goal is to deliver products that improve imaging capability and user-friendliness for ultrasound users in a variety of market settings. It has long been accepted that ultrasound requires specialized users who can interpret these images. Imperium's DAV™ camera technology now means that non-specialized users can effectively utilize tools to 'see inside' targets. Through both direct and indirect sales channels, as well as working with flagship OEM's in different industries, this capability has become a reality. Imperium is focused solely on DAV™ technology. Our company has successfully reacted quickly to many market embodiments of our device. Using our vast experience in ultrasound imaging and video cameras, Imperium has successfully shown multiple customers the improvement that can be gained by using our products. Imperium has built a unique blend of technical expertise in the fields of optics, video imaging systems, focal plane imaging arrays, and acoustics. Through this experience and a broad intellectual property base, Imperium has become the sole provider of this technology. Our competencies include developing, manufacturing and marketing specific embodiments of the DAV™ technology in a variety of settings. In addition to marketing our products directly, we have formed several key alliances whereby OEM customers are leveraging the technology in to support new application directions that suit their strategic business needs. The basis of the DAV™ technology is a unique, patented focal plane array which we produce at our semiconductor processing facility. We have extensive capabilities for electronics and system prototyping, test, and manufacturing, ensuring smooth development and transition to production. Furthermore, we fully support all of our clients through a series of training and support programs, ensuring that our customers are successful in using our products. Imperium has proactively invested in intellectual property since its founding. The company now owns several broad patents. These patents, along with a broad range of trade secrets, will protect our position in the marketplace for many years to come.
