Military Veteran Partners and Empire Selling Create Mentor Program

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 marzo 2019

Military Veteran Partners (MVP), a mission-driven investment and advisory services company focused on Veteran businesses and employment, has designed a new mentorship program in conjunction with Dan Swift, CEO of Empire Selling, to connect military Veterans with business veterans. Swift has created a unique social selling and marketing methodology that’s been implemented by Fortune 100 companies and will help MVP honor its commitment to mentoring, networking, and its partners’ professional development.The program pairs highly accomplished sales professionals from well-known organizations with MVP’s JDog Junk Removal & Hauling business owners and sales representatives—many of them Veterans—to encourage and nurture their business’s growth.“We worked with Military Veteran Partners to develop a mentor program that matches experienced business leaders from around the country with Veterans and entrepreneurs committed to Veteran hiring, allowing direct access to expert advice, insight, and guidance,” said Swift. “The military prepares Veterans in many ways, but the civilian business world operates very differently. When building a new business, Veterans may need help brainstorming ways to position a service into a new vertical, or would like to better understand the sales and marketing process—that’s where these mentors step in. They can empower MVP’s leaders to develop professionally, build sales pipeline, maximize deal sizes, shorten sales cycles, and ultimately thrive in a business environment.”The outpouring of interest for the mentor program was immediate; 100 mentors signed up from a single LinkedIn post by Swift, and around 30 mentor partnerships have been formed since July 2018. One of those partnerships is Mike Dutter, RVP of Enterprise Sales for U.S. Central/West at Oracle, and his mentee Tim Colomer, President at JDog United and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran.

Military and space applications at SPIE DSS 2012

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 26 aprile 2012

Châtenay-Malabry (near Paris), France, Sofradir, the number one developer and manufacturer of a key class of infrared detectors for military, space and industrial applications, announces today that it will demonstrate a prototype of the first 10-micron pixel pitch infrared (IR) detector for tactical applications at SPIE DSS in Baltimore, April 23 – 27. The image quality of an infrared detector depends on its spatial resolution that is related to the size and number of pixels. This means the higher the number of pixels and the smaller the pixel size, the sharper the image. In regards to the 10-micron pixel pitch, the small pitch means that Sofradir can double the number of pixels on a standard size chip. With this significant increase in image resolution, fighter pilots and soldiers will be considerably more effective in distinguishing between small objects at long distances (up to ten km) during the day and night, and through fog and smoke. Targeted military applications of Sofradir’s 10-micron pixel pitch IR detector will include Infrared Search and Track Systems (IRST), targeting and reconnaissance pods, long-range surveillance and armored vehicles. The focal plane array prototype was developed with the support of DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement) by CEA-Leti at DEFIR, the joint laboratory of Sofradir and CEA-Leti. CEA-Leti is a leading European microtechnology, IT and health technology research center. Sofradir credits its Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT/HgCdTe), a cooled IR technology using a silicon-like photodiode implantation process, for enabling the development of the 10-micron pixel pitch IR detector.
MCT is extremely effective at controlling pixel diodes. Moreover, Sofradir’s indium bump positioning process (the bumps are connection pads that join the detection circuit and the read out integrated circuit together) is very accurate. This level of control offers Sofradir two options: It can fit more pixels on the IR chips currently in use and therefore further enhance image resolution or develop smaller IR chips for overall IR system cost-savings.
Sofradir develops and manufactures advanced infrared (IR) detectors for military, space and commercial applications. It specializes in cooled IR detectors based on a sophisticated high performance technology, Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT), for which it has the market lead. Its vast product portfolio of scanning and staring arrays covers the entire infrared spectrum. Sofradir also offers QWIP detectors developed in cooperation with Thales.
CEA-Leti is a leading French research-and-technology organization with activities in energy, IT, healthcare, defense and security. CEA-Leti is focused on creating value and innovation through technology transfer to its industrial partners. It specializes in nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems to biology, healthcare and photonics. NEMS and MEMS are at the core of its activities. An anchor of the MINATEC campus, CEA-Leti operates 8,000 square metres of state-of-the-art clean room space on 200mm and 300mm wafer platforms. It employs 1,400 scientists and engineers and hosts more than 190 Ph.D. students and 200 associates from partner companies. CEA-Leti owns more than 1,700 patent families. For more information, visit

Additional media details are included below.   On Friday April 17th, the Middle Class Task Force, chaired by Vice President Biden, will hold its next meeting at the University of Missouri St. Louis. The meeting, titled “Making College More Affordable for our Families”, is the third in series of meetings the Vice President and Task Force members are holding across the country on key issues facing the middle class. The focus of the meeting in St. Louis will be to discuss ways to expand opportunities and help make the dream of a college education a reality for more families.
