DOT has pioneered the development of several key technologies. These include the development of a holographic beam combiner, a holographic spectrum analyzer, an optical network integration platform, and a holographic tri-stimulus filter for eye protection. It has also developed a holographic 3CCD camera and a polarimetric laser radar system.  Current research activities at DOT involve development of gyroscopes, accelerometers, atomic clocks, and laser beam combiners.


The areas of technical expertise at DOT include: Holography, Wavelength Division Multiplexing, Spectrum Analysis, LADAR, Polarimetry, Rotation Sensing, Accelerometry, Quantum Communication, Optical Communication, and Atomic Clocks.
