ISR Systems and Technology
The Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems and Technology mission conducts research and development into advanced sensing, signal and image processing, automatic target classification, decision support systems, and high-performance computing. By leveraging these disciplines, the Laboratory produces novel ISR system concepts for both surface and undersea surveillance applications. Sensor technology for ISR includes passive and active electro-optical systems, surface surveillance radar, radio-frequency geolocation, and undersea acoustic surveillance. Increasingly, the work extends from sensors and sensor platforms to include the processing, exploitation, and dissemination architectures that connect sensors to operational users. Prototype ISR systems developed from successful concepts are then transitioned to industry and the user community.
