Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing - DEOS

At ISAE SUPAERO, the Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing (DEOS) develops and realizes the payloads for the advanced aeronautics and space applications of tomorrow. The skills of its teams covers a wide range of technologies, from silicon sensors design to interplanetary science payloads, and from theoretical signal studies to advanced communication and navigation systems .

Our research teams

DEOS has various teaching missions

The DEOS is extensively involved in ISAE SUPAERO educational programs, both in the engineering program and the Masters program. The following non-exhaustive list includes some of the courses overseen by the DEOS.

The courses managed by DEOS are the OT/SU - Earth Observation and Universe Sciences course (followed by the 3rd year of the Engineering program), the major Space Imaging, Navigation and Communication (SINC) of the Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering and the M2R Advanced Communication Systems (ACS).

The DEOS in short

37 Permanent staff
31 Doctoral & Post-Doctoral students
12 Contractuals
4 Students (Research or Internship Paths)
