The scope of the program is to investigate, develop, and demonstrate concepts, components, and systems technologies to improve imaging performance for standoff high-resolution imaging (SHRI), hyperspectral sensing, infrared search and track (IRST), and sense and avoid (SAA) technology.

The EO-CHIL effort encompasses advanced research in focal plane arrays; optics, spectrometers, and optical systems; test targets; field and flight collections algorithm development; simulation of operational imagery; novel sensor concepts; and low cost, size, weight, and power (SWaP) technology.

"The EO-CHIL award continues our collaborative role with the AFRL on leading-edge research and development programs in key military and intelligence sensing technologies," says Leidos Group President Mike Chagnon. "The program fits within our portfolio of sensor, signal and data processing programs across EO, hyperspectral, ladar, radar, synthetic aperture radar, and sonar sensing."

Leidos is a Fortune 500 science and technology solutions and services provider working to solve the world's toughest challenges in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, civil, and health markets. The company's 32,000 employees support missions for government and commercial customers. Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Leidos reported annual revenues of approximately $7.04 billion for the fiscal year ended 30 December 2016.
