Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing - DEOS

At ISAE SUPAERO, the Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing (DEOS) develops skills in signal processing, information processing, and data analysis.
In both teaching and research, the DEOS focuses on the entire information processing chain. This includes sensor and instrument design, signal implementation and transmission, data analysis and using data in advanced aeronautics and space application frameworks.

The DEOS in short

Research groups

  • Space Systems for Planetology & Applications (SSPA)
  • Signals, Communications, Antennas, Navigation (SCAN)
  • MIcroélectroniques Image Sensors (CIMI)
