May 5, 2020 – Laser Tech (LTI), was awarded the 2020 Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting on May 4, 2020 for their performance in advancing Colorado's economic international trade.

LTI is a Colorado-based company that designs and manufactures innovative laser-based speed, distance, and measurement products for professionals and field workers to help solve problems.

The catalyst of LTI's diversified and innovative product portfolio, Jeremy Dunne, CFO, provides an unparalleled understanding of laser measurement holding over sixty patents, and counting.

LTI has a history of product and market breakthroughs since beginning established export activities in 1990. LTI introduced the first commercial speed laser, the LTI 20/20 Marksman, was asked by the government to create a laser system to measure inflight distances between planes for de-icing training and refueling, created a custom space station docking system for NASA, patented distance-between-cars technology, and developed the world's first hand held reflectorless total station for GIS mapping.
