Director: Dr. G. Nagendra Rao

The Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS), Bengaluru is responsible for design, development and production of electro-optic sensors and optics for spacecraft use. Sensor system includes earth sensors, star sensors, sun sensors, magnetic sensors, fiber optic gyro, temperature sensors and processing electronics. Optics system includes optics for remote sensing cameras, radiometers, star sensor optics, optical filter, optical masks, optical coatings, IR detectors and MEMS based inclinometer.

LEOS is actively involved in the development of new technologies for present / future satellites. This includes development active pixel sensor star tracker, Charge Coupled Device (CCD) based star tracker, Fiber Optics Gyro, Optical inter satellite link, high resolution camera optics, optical coatings and MEMS devices (magnetometer, accelerometer etc.).

LEOS is situated at Peenya Industrial Estate, Bengaluru where the first Indian Satellite Aryabhata was fabricated in 1975.
