Our Founders

Dr Jae Daniel

Jae is a world leading laser scientist, and has spent his career at the cutting edge of laser technology for defence, industry, and medicine.

His passion lies in optics and photonics, having spent over 15 years working within the defence industry and academia. His enthusiasm for the space saw him pursue and achieve a doctorate from the renowned University of Southampton with a focus on two-micron laser sources and high power laser design.

Jae's skill and guidance has lead AIM to develop revolutionary fibre laser designs that reduce size and weight, while also making high power lasers safer.

Jessica Glenn

Jessica is a successful technology entrepreneur, having sold two prior companies.

She specialises in teaching computers how to think. Her primary focuses are in computer vision and large scale, low latency, distributed computing, translating masses of data into useable insight - in micro-seconds.

Her skill and experience has lead seen her found and lead several high tech startups, with several successful exits under her belt. Jessica's most recent company, tamme, utilised both computer vision and decision making machine learning to optimise high frequency advertising bidding at a rate of billions of decisions per day.

Having sold tamme, Jessica turned her focus on how to translate her tech startup learnings into Australian capability and has lead the AIM team to develop the world's most precise High Power Laser targeting system.


Fractl uses novel lasers with advanced AI engagement modelling and governor algorithms to safely engage incoming threats.
By focusing on a high quality optical system and utilising ultra-precise tracking, Fractl is an order of magnitude smaller than other directed energy solutions.
Fractl is able to be scaled as a single unit (vertically) or across collaborative units (horizontally) to address operational requirements as needed.
