About Psionic

MASTEN mojave

Every day we work to solve challenging problems for some of our nation’s most important public and private organizations.

Psionic has grown to nearly 50 engineers and people who are working to improve the core technology’s speed and performance while reducing the size, weight, and power—which has been awarded additional patents. Further development to miniaturize the technology to a photonics integrated circuit chip has been funded in part by technology development grants from NASA and is slated to be available for production in late 2023. Psionic is headquartered in Hampton, Virginia, and is privately held.

Life at Psionic

Jon Ward and other members of the Psionic team aboard Stiletto at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek preparing for a demonstration of Psionic sensor technology for the Army and Navy.

Jon, PhD Lead Applied Physicist

“Last summer we spent several days aboard Stiletto, a Navy advanced technology demonstration boat, preparing Psionic technology for an obstacle-detection demonstration for the Army. The long hours of preparation, verification, and testing paid off. We got great results, detecting small objects on the surface at extreme range while traveling at speeds of up to 30 knots. In addition to the encouraging results, the opportunity to work alongside the Stiletto team was very rewarding."

“In the end, we were successful and collected valuable information to further develop one of our Defense products.”

Amirreza, PhD Director of Integrated Photonics Development

“I chose Psionic because the course work and research I’ve done for the last several years is central to the mission of the company. Coming in and immediately being given the responsibility for reducing our solution to an integrated photonics platform has been challenging and immensely rewarding. Moving to a photonic integrated circuit is a critical step in terms of new applications and reaching much larger markets.  Everything I’ve done has brought me to this point.”
Mystique Owens — Mechanical Engineer

“The environment is very dynamic, with a focus on innovation and executional excellence. Every day is different. I could be contributing ideas towards process improvement in the morning and in the afternoon be outside field testing something we’ve just finished building. Since my very first day, everyone has been very supportive and encouraging, and as a recent graduate, the mentoring has helped my growth as a mechanical engineer.”
