ParisTech 2013 Award for an Onera Thesis on Infrared Optronics

Florence de la Barrière, a former doctoral student at Onera, had developed an extremely compact infrared on-chip camera with a very wide field of view during her Onera thesis (2009-2012). She has just received the prestigious ParisTech 2013 award for her work.

The work of Florence de la Barrière was carried out at Onera within the framework of a program of the Armament Procurement Agency of the French Ministry of Defense, DGA (Direction Générale de l'Armement), aimed at industrializing the camera. An industrially mature demonstrator will also be completed by early 2014, in close collaboration with the company Sofradir, which signed a Research & Innovation Partnership contract with Onera.
