This paper discusses Electro-Optic research activities from Electromagnetic Remote Sensing Defence
Technology Centre (EMRS DTC) funded programmes which have enhanced Selex Sensors and Airborne
Systems Ltd products. EMRS DTC EO Theme programmes relating to Broadband OPOs to reduce the
coherence of laser sources for active imaging at 1.5μm, Intra-cavity Adaptive Optics Control of Lasers, Cost
Reduction in 2D IR Detectors, Photonic Fibres for Active Sensor Systems, Novel low voltage InAs avalanche
photodiodes for affordable 2D IR photodetectors and Hyperspectral Algorithm Development have been
included in the discussion.
