Dayton defense contractor lands $100,000 Third Frontier grant


Dayton’s Battle Sight Technologies has landed a $100,000 grant from the Ohio Third Frontier Technology Validation and Start-up Fund.

The money will be used to further test and refine a new product to help distinguish friend from foe on the nighttime battlefield.

The Dayton business said it is the only company to receive the Ohio grant twice. The company first won the grant in 2018.

“I believe Ohio is a growing force in the emerging technologies marketplace and it’s exciting to impact state and local economies through the creation of technology-focused jobs,” said Nick Ripplinger, president of Battle Sight and a U.S. Army veteran. “We anticipate significant growth over the course of the next four years from our Dayton headquarters.”
