The technology thrust of the OERL is the development and implementation of various structural sensing technology to real-world. The novel developments are achieved based on the multidisciplinary areas of optics, electronics, mechatronics and signal processing for the fields of laser and opitcs in engineering, integrated integrity management, fiber optic, noncontact and wireless sensing, advanced nondestructive evaluation and measurement, pyroshock measurement and simulation, and microwave imaging for stealth/radome structures.

   The application fields encompass Smart Hangar, space launchers, fighters, unmanned air vehicles, wind turbines, power plants, railway structures, and public safety.
