Welcome Salam!

We are incredibly excited to announce the addition of Dr. Salam Elahmadi to our team as Vice President of Engineering.

Salam comes to us with 20+ years of proven success at large companies like Nortel and IPG Photonics and at start-ups like Menara. Salam co-founded Menara as its Chief Technology Officer and led diverse engineering teams developing complex optical transceivers and advanced mixed-signal ASICs for 19 years at Menara and at IPG, which acquired Menera in 2016.

At Voyant, Salam will be responsible for systematizing the development, productization, and product marketing of our state-of-the-art solid-state LiDAR products.

“We are so fortunate to have found Salam.” says Peter Stern, Voyant CEO. “His deep technical understanding and keen business sense for taking novel products from concept through specs, R&D, design, beta and prototype, to customer trials, production and deployment make him the perfect addition to our team as we move to productization.”

A passionate proponent for LiDAR, Salam finds Voyant “The perfect next step in my career. The team, the technology, and the opportunity to make LiDAR ubiquitous made Voyant irresistible.”

Voyant Photonics, based in New York, NY, is the only company demonstrating 4D LiDAR with on-chip beam steering in field-deployable systems. We are bringing LiDAR sensing technology to market at 1/10th the cost and 1/10 the size of any comparable system.
