Symphony Sensors, Inc. is a Delaware corporation founded in 2006 by CTO Dustin W. Carr, Ph.D. and CEO J. Michael Camp. Originally named Symphony Acoustics, our focus was on high performance microphones. By 2007, the seismic and gravity sensing communities began contacting Dr. Carr because of his previous work in these areas. In mid 2007, Symphony completed an initial financing round of $2.75M from a consortium of private hedge funds and accredited investors. Soon afterwards, the Company applied for, and was awarded, grants from the Department of Energy, which provided $850K of funding toward the development of seismic devices needed to better monitor violations of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Symphony also established a development and licensing agreement with a Fortune 500 company. This project began as a $500K feasibility study, and has grown to a $3.5M project with win-wins for both companies. In 2011, we demonstrated sensors that exceeded the stretch goals of this phase of the project. That success has moved us to the final stage of development: commercialization.
At this juncture, Symphony plans to realize its substantive intellectual properties and know how to commercialize sensors that will revolutionize the physical sensing industry. Stay tuned ....
