Electro-Optical Sensors

SDL has been developing electro-optical sensors for over five decades for our military, civil, and industry customers. These systems span the electromagnetic spectrum from the UV to the far IR and have been used in diverse applications such as sounding rocket experiments, Space Shuttle payloads, satellite platforms, UAV and aircraft-borne systems, and ground-based facilities.
