Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Collaborations with Industry & Government

LLNL has a variety of mechanisms in place to help meet your mission need pertaining to the signal & image sciences.

Technology Transfer


The LLNL Industrial Partnerships Office seeks to enhance the competitiveness of U.S. industry through the commercialization of LLNL-developed technologies. Its portfolio includes a wide variety of patents, software, and other licenseable inventions in the domain of the signal and image sciences.

Joint Research and Development

In addition to licensing technologies previously developed at the Laboratory, industrial partners can choose to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with LLNL. Signal and image processing technologies with the potential to mutually benefit both the U.S. Department of Energy and the industrial partner are eligible for this unique joint R&D process.

In the Spotlight — AOSense

The Idea

Signal processors leverage cutting-edge physics of “ultraslow” cold-atom interferometry to uncover shielded radioactive material

The Collaboration

LLNL signal processing engineers, physicists, threat analysts, and technicians team up with AOSense, providers of unique cold-atom sensors

The Results

Remarkably, these gradiometers can easily ‘see’ Earth tides… and achieve our more exacting standards as well. We're looking forward to the next steps in developing these sensors and in answering some fascinating basic physics questions.
