Thermal imagers sensitive in MWIR and LWIR spectral bands are one of crucial surveillance technologies for defense/security sector. These imagers have also found mass applications outside defense sector. Testing thermal imagers is needed for both manufacturers, maintenance workshops and final users for a set of different and important reasons. Hi-tech test equipment can help significantly in manufacturing, maintenance, training, purchase optimization, and optimal use of these expensive imagers.
INFRAMET offers five types of systems for testing thermal imagers:
- DT - testing surveillance thermal imagers at laboratory/depot conditions
- SIM -simplified testing surveillance thermal imagers at laboratory/depot conditions
- WAP - portable wide angle projector
- LAFT -basic testing surveillance thermal imagers at field/depot conditions
- SAFT -testing measurement thermal imagers
DT series systems are the most popular test systems that enables expanded testing of surveillance thermal imagers. A long series of parameters including MRTD can be measured. SIM systems are simple, low cost systems designed to enable focusing and resolution measurement of thermal imagers. Both DT and SIM are stationary systems to be used at laboratory/depot conditions.
WAP is a portable wide angle projector optimized for testing imagers of wide FOV. Small size and mass combined with wide projection angle are big advantages of this system
LAFT is mobile test station designed to enable basic testing surveillance thermal imagers at field/depot conditions.
SAFT is a small test system testing measurement thermal imagers designed for short distance observation.
