Greek Mythology

Those visiting this site for the first time may be wondering why the company is called Hyperion.

The name Hyperion means "he who goes before the sun" and may have arisen because he was sometimes thought of as the sun.  In Greek mythology, Hyperion is the Titan of light, the father of the sun, the moon, and the dawn.  He is a son of Uranus and Gaia, married to his sister Theia and has three children - Helios (sun god), Selene (moon goddess) and Eos (goddess of the dawn). 

For a company that specializes in making coldshields for infrared cameras it seemed appropriate to take the name of this mythological Titan, and to include the sun in our logo.
