Defence and security

Development of photonics security and surveillance technology (imaging, sensors, transmissions) comprehensively improves the safety of people and goods alike.
Preventing attacks on people is currently subject to heightened political measures, calling for the development of increasingly effective surveillance systems such as airport security, industrial site safety and surveillance in private places.
The automotive market, public transport and railway interactions also require high-performance security systems (maintenance, monitoring of intersections, detection of objects, monitoring of driver compartments) related to photonic technologies: imaging, sensors, optics, lighting surface treatments, and adapted lighting.
