SENSOR & IMAGER TEST
Originally developed for military use, infrared sensors are now commonly used for a wide range of applications, such as building inspection, medical testing, manufacturing process monitoring, astronomy, etc. Most of these sensors rely on accurate test equipment during their manufacturing and need certified calibrations. Combined with optics, those sensors consitute imagers.
Some devices are composed by several sub-systems and become multispectral / fusion cameras (IR + Visible + SWIR imagers) or are associated with laser designator and LRF. The right combination of both optics and detectors, or several sub-systems, directly affects the devices performances and quality. Manufacturers or users can then characterize and tune the devices thanks to optical tests.
