The Security and Defence area is quite broad as it directly involves the citizens and represents one of the basic supports of the society. In the field of technology and processes, it has increasingly been focusing on dual-use solutions, civil and military. Cybersecurity is one of the most explicit examples of such duality.
Especially in view of this dual-use perspective, INOV has been developing activities in the Security and Defence area, which includes the elaboration of specific technologies, participation in European projects, technology development and transfer to companies, or even the providing services. The area of INOV actions include Cybersecurity, monitoring, navigation and control systems for automatic incident detection, LIDAR sensors, and systems of indoor location, among others.
