Information and sensor systems
A superior information position provides a crucial tactical advantage. It facilitates effective management of the military organisation and the deployment of resources. We help by devising and developing technology.
The Netherlands’ digital fortitude and resilience
Almost all vital processes and systems in the Netherlands are either partly or fully digitised. Digital fortitude, or cyber resilience, is therefore essential. This is why our scientists work every day on measures aimed at prevention, detection, response and recovery.
Our latest developments
Low frequency active sonar
TNO has over 30 years of practical experience with low frequency active sonar for anti-submarine protection. Find out what we do for the Dutch Ministry of Defence using LFAS.
Cyber and Electronic Warfare
The digital resilience of the Netherlands is essential. At TNO, we work with our partners on innovative solutions in the field of digital security.
We innovate for networked organisations, helping them implement innovations in various domains, like urban safety, security of vital infrastructure, crisis management, intelligence and national safety.
TNO is among the best in the world with a focus on Active electronically scanned array radars.
Intelligent autonomous systems
TNO-DSS uses knowledge about system architectures, advanced control systems, systems/software engineering and AI for civil and defense projects.

In a military context, situational awareness, i.e., an understanding of how well you can see and how well you can be seen, is crucial. Turbulence degrades image quality and absorption by aerosols reduces contrast, which reduces the maximum distance at which you can see.
Frank van VlietFunctie:Principal Scientist
I work in Microwaves. I do so as long as I can remember, and I hope to do so for many years to come. With a passion for Radio since my childhood, my professional career has focused entirely on Phased-Array systems, and in particular on pushing the technologies that make them work, enlarging and envisioning phased-array capabilities in view of future operational demands.

Electronic warfare (EW) is military action that exploits electromagnetic (EM) energy to provide situational awareness and create effects. EW is a key segment of electromagnetic operations (EMO), and can provide the operational level commander2 with a means to shape the electromagnetic environment (EME) to support NATO operations while denying the same to the adversary
