Re: Microelectromechanical mirrors (MEMS) are NOT SOLID-STATE...according to Wikipedia

 
Yes, reduced to definition of SS.
 
If definition of SS means no macro moving parts (as in current auto LiDAR), then MEMS is SS. 
 
And yes, if MEMS(LBS) LiDAR can deliver the necessary performance, it can win the contracts (assuming cost is competitive). If people want to call it "SS performance and reliability", that is fine. But it is basically just adequate performance and reliability, versus the application's requirements.
 
An example of people referring to something (in this case truly) incorrectly, (for marketing purposes and such), that everyone has been exposed to, is in flatscreen TVs.  There previously were 2 types, Plasma, and LCD. Plasma is out of the market. OLED came in. Now there are two types, OLED and LCD. But for years, manufacturers and sellers presented some LCD TVs as "LED TVs". (They more recently have been a little more clear about it.)  Why ? Because it was a new marketing term they could use, and it represented a distinction (but in back lighting, not base display technology type) that they could communicate easily to consumers. When it was unique, it was an effective marketing tactic. Now that it is more universal, the distinction isn't as effective a marketing tactic, so they back off highlighting it. (They have not backed off yet, overall.) Anyway, this is a little different than an industry using a definition (B2B, not B2C). But maybe sheds light on why SS is used as it is in autos.......it makes the distinction that MEMS(LBS) LiDAR does not have macro moving parts like current available LiDAR.
