Thermal imagers

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:

  1. DT - testing surveillance thermal imagers at laboratory/depot conditions
  2. SIM -simplified testing surveillance thermal imagers at laboratory/depot conditions
  3. WAP - portable wide angle projector
  4. LAFT -basic testing surveillance thermal imagers at field/depot conditions
  5. 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.
