The department of Optical Information Systems consists of three specialized units. In addition to these there are various specialized groups working on medium-term objectives. They work closely together in bringing specialised knowledge to the system level.
The department IOS possesses a substantial pool of expertise in sensor systems for optical exploration, involving their design, development, implementation and testing, particularly of algorithms and software solutions.
The department Optical Sensors and Electronics as one of three sub-departments of the Institute of Optical Sensor Systems mainly works in the area of infrared technology, and high-resolution satellite technology in national and international projects.
Our scientific work consists in the design, implementation and verification of new remote sensing systems and innovative strategies for the automatic processing of high-resolution sensor data.
The department has a long tradition in the infrared and terahertz - and laboratory spectroscopy. On this basis, we participate in a large number of projects. The analysis of the data that were recorded with these instruments, is an important area of research.
The Working Group optics, calibration and validation (OCV) deals with the spectral, radiometric and geometric calibration of opto-electronic sensors. The focus is on the spatial and spectral resolution imaging instruments and complete systems.
