Observation, Weapon & Protection Systems

Together with our colleagues of Human & Operational Modelling, we are mainly active for Defence as our hundreds of experts help to protect the security of our country on three fronts. We focus on the development of distinctive observation technology (radar, sonar, cameras and electronic warfare (EOV)) and its intelligent deployment. The second focus lies on modelling the effectiveness and determining the vulnerability of weapon systems. The third area concentrates on characterising the diverse threats and protection against them.

Our knowledge and experience in these fields are used primarily for Dutch Defence and increasingly for security organisations both at home and abroad. We also assist companies all over the world in product innovation. Our strong technology base means we are able to work in a wide variety of domains from industry to space and the maritime sector. Our exceptional experimental facilities are internationally recognised and renowned.
