Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL)

The Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL) is a leader in EO and 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:

Electronic Warfare Modeling & Analysis - Enhancing performance through electro-optical & RF simulation, visualization and analysis.

  • Atmospheric Program Modeling
  • EO Systems
  • IRCM
  • Scene Generation
  • One-on-one to many-on-many

Sensor Intelligence & Visualization - Focused on data to knowledge solutions for community protection and wellbeing.

  • Decision Support

  • Web Applications

Electro-Optical Systems Innovation - Developing systems and technologies for remote imaging and other sensor applications.

  • EO Systems Design
  • Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)
  • LIDAR & Active EO Systems
  • Personnel Detection

EOSL also has the following Program Offices and Research Centers:

ARAT Program Office – This office provides support to the Army Reprogramming Analysis Team, which is a key component of the Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM), Software Engineering Center (SEC) located at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Aberdeen, Md. The Army Reprogramming Analysis Team is the primary distribution point for threat updates to Army aviation, ground systems and platforms. Among other services, it support warfighters by assisting with installation, operation and maintenance of aircraft survivability equipment, and it supports operations for the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines.

COSMOS - The Center for Optimization of Simulated Multiple Objective Systems provides the capability to analyze and optimize complex systems through the use of simulation tools. These tools have been developed according to a proven methodology for the evaluation and optimization of complex systems using simulation.

Medical Device Testing - Electromagnetic emissions from security and logistical technologies surrounding us can produce potential interference with implanted and externally-worn medical devices. EOSL's Medical Device Test Center simulates real-world exposure to identify interactions and help manufacturers improve compatibility.
