Organization profile

Organization profile

The Electro-Optics Center (EOC), a proud part of The Pennsylvania State University, is a hybrid between the best components of a university and those of private industry. This relationship allows us access to the university's researchers and scientists, its state-of-the-art facilities and leading edge research. Our staff, comprised primarily of former industry and DoD personnel, brings experience in exceeding sponsor and corporate expectations. Through the application of this hybrid model, the EOC is able to provide its sponsors with solutions that combine leading edge research with on-time and on-budget deliveries.
