Meyers Advanced Photonics started as SeaMesh Corporation, a unique underwater demolition company that started clearing away subsurface debris in the shipyards of Puget Sound. And evolved into providing a service for large ships to clear their hulls from marine growth while at anchor. With his patented method of utilizing a low-yield explosive mesh system. Meyers was able to create a high-pressure wave effect that would clear barnacles from the ship, but leave the steel hull undamaged. This allowed for expedited and inexpensive ship maintenance as costly dry dock fees could be avoided and the process could be completed in a day. Fewer barnacles resulted in less drag, and less drag resulted in better fuel economy during the routine ocean journeys of these large vessels.
As operations and insurance costs increased. SeaMesh became difficult to sustain and later evolved into B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. in 1974. Meyers took his interest in optics and astronomy and started an astronomy business out of their small home. Successfully selling a variety of telescopes and other equipment throughout the typically cloudy Pacific Northwest.

And then high-power infrared and visible lasers for weapons and military applications came next. Meyers Advanced Photonics design military equipment for the US and her allies. Specifically for those who are forward in the fight, both today and into the future.
