Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL)

The Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory is a leader in electro-optical (EO) and radio frequency (RF) signal and information processing, with expertise covering system design, algorithm development, and modeling and simulation for signals across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Core research emphasis includes sensor information processing and visualization, optimization and modeling and simulation of self-protection systems, topographic and bathymetric LIDAR. EOSL houses high performance computing facilities, which allow the EOSL Center for Optimization to perform modeling and simulation of electronic warfare, infrared countermeasures, and self-protection techniques. EOSL also houses a unique Medical Device Test Center and provides infrastructure enhancement EW program office support to the Army. Key research areas include:
