R&D in Optical Devices & Systems is focused towards Strategic and Defense Instrumentation.  Activities include R&D in the area of optics, photonics,
mechanical and electronic modules. The progress made in the Head up Display for LCA  
has met the R&D challenges which include, avoiding sun
glare during mid-day operations, performance up-gradation through software modification, raster implementation for night flying, improving the
transmissivity of beam combiners and motorized ir
is camera.  This success provided new impetus towards indigenous technology development of
Head up Displays for fighter aircrafts for Indian Air Force.  More than 890 successful flights of the LCA made by TD1, TD2, PV1, PV2, PV3 and LSP1
aircrafts have further proved ruggedness in the technology. This engineering perfection through SOF/LQT Unit of HUD for HJT-36 aircraft will further
lead to development of low cost versions of HUD for civilian aircrafts.
