Our experts have taken on the challenge of protecting our warfighters against emergent threats in a continuously evolving mission space. We focus on developing hardened and threat-reactive materials to guard eyes, sensors, and structures. We work to characterize both the challenges and vulnerabilities in this space, specializing in thermal, optical, and electronic systems. Our photonic and electronic technologies research extends to laser-materials interaction, testing the study of materials’ performance in high-temperature environments. We operate the Laser Heated Materials Evaluation Laboratory (LHMEL), which uses controlled laser heating coupled with operationally significant environmental simulation to provide valuable data to high-temperature materials developers.
