Electro-Optical Infrared (EOIR) Systems

Electro-Optical Infrared (EOIR) Systems Overview

EOIR Systems

EOIR (Electro-Optical Infra-Red) systems are imaging systems that combine sensors across both visible and infrared wavelengths.

These systems act as eyes that give deployed military forces the situational awareness they require to operate in contested situations, day and night, and in low light or adverse weather conditions.

EOIR sensors

With long-range imaging ability and stabilisation, EOIR systems are usually mounted on aircraft or vehicles, but can also be carried. 

They are able to identify, track, and assess targets and threats from a distance and in difficult environments.

Typical applications of EOIR systems include:

  • Airborne security
  • Combat
  • Patrol
  • Surveillance
  • Reconnaissance
  • Search and rescue programs
