About 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. To underpin this work, the CSIR has 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 application especially the management of large amounts of image data.
