Our members are VDL, DEMCON and GTM-AS, with each of us contributing with unique expertise in the value chain of laser connectivity. Powered by TNO, we aim at commercialising our co-developed solutions to the worldwide market.

We chose to form this consortium because we believe in the strength of partnerships, be it among us, or with our clients. Together we can deliver reliable high-tech solutions leveraging on decades of experience as well as new and fresh perspectives from our members.
