Who We Are

Alakai Defense Systems, Inc. is a defense and security technology company specializing in laser and electro-optic sensing of explosives, homemade explosives, IEDs and chemicals of interest. Its product line of explosives detection systems is differentiated by operating at detection ranges much longer than those presently on the market, while remaining completely eye-safe. Alakai systems have been successfully deployed overseas by the US Army. Strong performance as a Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Prime Contractor and system integrator has led to recognition including: the Florida Governor’s Entrepreneurial Award (2008), the Tampa Bay Technology Forum Emerging Technology Company of the Year Award (2010), the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s “Fast 50” list of fastest growing companies in the region (2014), and the Inc. 5000 (2014).
