ELA-015
Optronics, infrared, imaging - 2019

Optronics

OBJECTIVE :

This training will provide learners with an overview of optronics and its military and civilian applications.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:

  • Lectures with projections
  • Examples and applications
