3AF – The French Aerospace Society – organizes OPTRO 2022, the 10th International Symposium on OPTRONICS IN DEFENCE AND SECURITY, taking place from 08 to 10 June, 2022.
OPTRO is the European event for engineers and scientists in the field of Optronics.

For its 10th edition, OPTRO2022 will reserve special topics to highlight the growing place of Optronics in Defense and Space.
By gathering leading specialists from government, industry, university and laboratories, the Symposium represents a great opportunity to implement fruitful exchanges between colleagues of different countries and disciplines.

The EPIC Roundtable will be also organised during the event and dedicated to smart optronic detectors (for ghost imaging, challenging targets detection, hyper & multispectral systems, 3DLidars, etc.)

OPTRO2022 will present recent findings in Optronics in the fields of Defence and Security and perspectives that Photonics offers in the near future through emerging technologies.

OPTRO2022 will host an exhibition, within the conference venue, offering all attendees and exhibiting companies in the Optronics field an opportunity to exchange on technical know-how and state-of-the-art products.
PhD communications will be included in symposium sessions and will be highlighted by the OPTRO 2022 best PhD communication Award.
The OPTRO 2022 Award will be attributed on 09 June, 2022.
