Optronic Sensor Systems

The CSIR’s research in the field of Optronic Sensor Systems (OSS) focuses on new and novel electro-optic sensors, and the modelling, simulation, engineering, testing, evaluation and development of advanced electro-optical sensor systems for day, night and multispectral surveillance. Researchers also evaluate and design countermeasure and electronic warfare techniques in the visual and infrared wavelengths. Underpinning this work, is a suite of specialist facilities, including a test and evaluation laboratory, flight motion simulator, ship motion simulator and missile exploitation laboratory.

Research areas include self-protection, advanced optical systems, surveillance applications and information applications, especially the management of large amounts of image data.
