WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio - U.S. Air Force researchers are kicking off a new effort to advance electro- optical sensor technologies for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), targeting, and situational awareness for manned and unmanned aircraft.

Officials of the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL's) sensors directorate at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, briefed industry on details of the Electro-Optical Combined Hyperspectral Imaging, Infrared Search and Track, and Long Range Imaging R&D (EO-CHIL) project.

U.S. Air Force experts are ready to approach industry for electro-optical sensor technologies for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), targeting, and situational awareness for manned and unmanned aircraft

The EO-CHIL project relates to an upcoming broad agency announcement (BAA-AFRL-RQKS-2016-0010) that will be released next September or October.

The objective of this contract is to conduct Research and Development to advance and mature the Air Force Research Laboratory's portfolio of electro-optical sensors and related technology for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), targeting, and situational awareness for manned, remotely piloted, and autonomous aircraft.
