Description

With headquarters at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, and additional research facilities at Hanscom AFB, Mass. and Rome, N.Y., the Sensors Directorate develops the new technologies that U.S. warfighters need to find and precisely engage the enemy and eliminate its ability to hide or threaten our forces. In collaboration with other AFRL directorates and DOD organizations, the directorate develops sensors for air and space reconnaissance, surveillance, precision engagement and electronic warfare systems.

Mission

The mission of the Air Force Research Laboratory Sensors Directorate is to lead the discovery, development and integration of affordable sensor and countermeasure technologies for our warfighters. Its Layered Sensing vision is to provide robust sensors and adaptive countermeasures that guarantee complete freedom of air and space operations for our forces, and deny these capabilities to our adversaries at times and places of our choosing. To achieve this vision, development is focused on surveillance, precision engagement, and electronic warfare technologies. Its core technology areas include radar, active and passive electro-optical targeting systems, navigation aids, automatic target recognition, sensor fusion, threat warning, and threat countermeasures.
