Our history

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA) was founded in 1990 and has been successful in taking innovative technologies from the applied research stage to product development and ultimately to the commercial market. In some cases, the successes led to the creation of independent businesses. We have created companies in our area of focus, sold some of them to industry leaders in their fields, raised private capital, formed joint ventures and entered into a number of licensing agreements.

We are a Virginia-based company with a diverse team of scientists, engineers, and business professionals developing and manufacturing a new generation of technologies and products. Operating in 4 locations across Virginia, we employ a disciplined and integrated business model designed to accelerate the process of bringing innovative solutions to market.
