Detection Technology Investment Area

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Detection Technology Investment Area allows forces to maintain operational tempo through a range of enemy threats by creating a family of systems that increases the stand-off distance for detection of kinetic or non-kinetic, surface or subsurface, manned or unmanned threats to a distance that provides the commander with a series of options ranging from bypassing the hazard to neutralizing the threat.

Detection technologies include:

  • Multi-spectral imaging
  • Explosive trace detection
  • Sensor and data fusion
  • Human social cultural behavior
  • Optical augmentation
  • Ground-penetrating radar algorithms
  • Electronics detection
