The Electronic Systems Laboratory (ELSYS) is one of eight labs in the Georgia Tech Research Institute and one of three labs under the Electronics, Optics, and Systems directorate.[1] Among its research focuses are systems engineering, electronic warfare, and human systems integration.

Research areas[edit]

ELSYS focuses on systems engineering solutions in electronic defense; modeling, simulation and analysis; countermeasures technique development; sensors performance analysis; electronic warfare; systems integration; standardized test procedures; flight test support; laboratory support stations and test systems; missile warning system improvements; technology insertion and human factors. ELSYS also specializes in mathematical modeling, analysis of dynamic systems, specialized instrumentation, and real-time simulation.


ELSYS has five divisions: the System Engineering Division (SEN), the Test Engineering Division (TEN), the Systems Technology and Analysis Division (STAD), the Electronic Systems Integration Division (ESID), and the Human Systems Integration Division (HSI). HSI is the sole authorized consumer product test facility for the Arthritis Foundation, the Arthritis Society of Canada, Arthritis Australia, and Arthritis New Zealand.

Recently[when?], the GTRI Health and Environmental Systems Laboratory (HESL) was disbanded, and the staff were transferred to other parts of GTRI. ELSYS received many of these individuals, as it does a lot of HCI work, a field predominant in HESL. The Air National Guard Program Office is also under ELSYS.


Most of ELSYS' operations are located in the Centennial Research Building on Georgia Tech's campus in Atlanta, Georgia. ELSYS also has a field office in Warner Robins, Georgia to provide on-site support for Robins AFB.
