The department of Optronics researches methods and creates mathematical models for designing, evaluating and protecting active and passive electro-optical sensors in the business areas of Defense, Civil Security as well as Inspection and Visual Verification.
The work area active and passive sensors inspects and evaluates optronic sensors and sensor systems in terms of their performance and possible applications.
The area laser safety and optronic counter measures inspects, prepares and evaluates concepts for eye protection and the protection of electro-optical sensors (visual and IR) as well as the threat potential of laser sources for disturbing optronic systems.
In modeling and simulation,methods andalgorithms are developed for analytical modeling and imaging simulations to predict the performance of optronic systems in different situations.
Through close cooperation with the individual work areas, the department of Optronics disposes of the complete competence spectrum for the research, evaluation and simulation of innovative, electro-optical systems.
