Defense & Security

Growing concern for Homeland Security has Defence organizations looking for new ways to detect, recognize, and identify threats to achieve a better situational awareness.

Defense and Security applications include :

  • Standoff chemical detection and identification of gases (CWAs & TICs)
  • Standoff chemical detection and identification of surface contaminants
  • Ballistics, missile infrared homing, infrared countermeasure
  • Illicit and clandestine laboratories detection (explosives and drugs)
  • Unexploded ordnance and landmines detection
  • Signatures of rocket, missiles and flares
  • Detection of mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs)
  • Military target infrared signature acquisition and analysis
  • Surveillance
  • Explosion characterization
  • Combustion and fluid dynamics
  • Explosion and material characterization
