  • Blackbodies

    Inframet

    Blackbodies are devices that work as near perfect emitters of thermal radiation in range from visible to microwaves. There are many blackbodies available on international market. Inframet specializes in high-tech expensive blackbodies optimized for narrow market of high requirements. All blackbodies offered by Inframet are characterized by special features.

  • Rotary wheels

    Inframet

    Rotary wheels are one of basic blocks of systems for testing imaging EO systems. They are needed to enable motorized exchange of active target at collimator focal plane. There are usually 8 holes in the wheel for targets (other numbers are also possible). Wheels are covered with a black high emissivity coating (emissivity at least 0.97).

  • Meters

    Inframet

    Meters offered by Inframet are basically meters designed to support calibration of test systems manufactured by Inframet. The meters can be divided into two groups:*Temperature meters*Luminance meters

  • Discrete Detectors

    Inframet

    TRAL test station is a quasi-universal test station designed to measure parameters of discrete (or small linear array) infrared detectors sensitive in a wide spectral range from about 700nm to about 16 000 nm (NIR/SWIR/MWIR/ LWIR detectors or broadband non selective detectors). All main types of infrared detectors can be tested: photonic detectors: photovoltaic/photoreconductive, cooled/non-coooled, thermal detectors, pyroelectric detectors etc.

  • Light Sources

    Inframet

    There are many low cost artificial light sources used for illumination or for industrial applications: tungsten or halogen bulbs, fluorescent lamps, LED lamps etc. Some of these sources have regulated intensity of emitted light. However, there very few calibrated light sources of precisely known parameters. A light source can be considered as calibrated when its user can precisely regulate its photometric/radiometric parameters like luminance (or illuminance), radiance (or irradiance) at defined spectrum of interest. Such light sources are needed in many applications among them, in systems for testing night vision devices, VIS-NIR cameras and SWIR imagers. Inframet offers a series of calibrated light sources that can be divides into three groups:

  • Computer simulators

    Inframet

    There are three computer simulators offered by INFRAMET:*SIMTERM - computer simulator of thermal imagers,*VIRTEST - computer simulator of test proces thermal imagers ( MRTD measurement)*NIGHTMET - computer simulator of image intensifier tubes

  • Optical tables

    Inframet

    The primary goal of a well designed optical table is to eliminate relative motion between components of test system located on the surface of the optical table because such motion can generate measurement errors.

  • IR FPA sensors

    Inframet

    IR FPA sensors are the most important modules of thermal imagers. Design of sensor electronics (camera core) is a crucial part of designing of new thermal imager. Knowledge of precise parameters of IR FPA sensor is needed by both professionals involved in both IR FPA technology/thermal imagers technology because parameters of IR FPA sensors determine performance limits of thermal imagers. Therefore test equipment that enable measurement of IR FPA sensors is a vital tool for development of both IR FPA technology/thermal imagers technology. It is commonly known that data sheets provided by manufacturers of IR FPA sensors (both cooled or non-cooled) provide too little details for electronics designers. Sometimes the provided data is not accurate enough and better sensor performance can be achieved using modified control signals. Therefore design teams loose sometimes years to develop electronic camera core optimized for a specific IR FPA sensor. When the type of the IR FPA sensor is changed the whole process is to be repeated. In this situation an universal, flexible camera core that would accept IR FPA sensors from different manufacturers and to carry out semi-automatic determination of optimal signal controls for a specific IR FPA sensor would be highly desirable.

  • Image Intensifiers

    Inframet

    Image intensifier tubes (IITs) are vacuum tubes that amplify a low light-level image to observable levels. Image intensifier tubes are the most important modules of night vision devices that play crucial role in defense/security/industrial applications.Technology of manufacturing of image intensifier tubes is very difficult and performance parameters of modern IITs varies even within the same technological process. Next, test report offered by manufacturers cannot be fully trusted because there are some differences in test methods used by different manufactures. Further on, there are literature sources presenting conflicting claims of different manufacturers. It is quite common to find on the world market two night vision devices (or two image intensifier tubes) of the same data sheet parameters but of totally different image quality. Inverse situation is possible, too. Due to reasons mentioned above testing image intensifier tubes is of critical importance for both their manufacturers, manufacturers of night vision devices (NVDs) and final users of NVDs.

  • Streak Tubes

    Inframet

    Streak tubes are the most important modules of streak cameras used for the study of ultra fast optical phenomena. The latter cameras are tools of critical importance in many areas of science and technology like studies of plasma/electric discharge/ combustion/laser ablation/ condensed matter phenomenon, in optical communications, electron beam acceleration technology, photochemistry, medicine, biology etc. Streak cameras have made possible a series of important scientific discoveries in earlier mentioned areas of science and technology. Precision information about parameters of streak tubes is needed both by manufacturer of such tubes in improve tube design and by users of these tubes to correct data generated by the tubes and make possible more accurate interpretation of output images.

  • THz Cameras

    Inframet

    Passive THz imagers are capable to see thru thin obstacles and are a very interesting solutions for short distance surveillance applications like airport screening, prison screening etc. Ability to create images of targets hidden by humans under clothes is particularly interesting. This ability can be evaluated when a set of parameters of these imagers is measured and known.

  • UV Cameras

    Inframet

    Solar blind UV cameras are imaging devices optimized to detect ultraviolet light of wavelengths below about 280nm. Such cameras are insensitive against sunlight due to negligible sensitivity to visible and long wavelength UV light. Solar blind UV cameras are used in a series of applications like corona detection, fire detection, combustion analysis, plasma research, testing UV lamps, etc. However, highly sensitive corona detection is the main mass application and these devices are of crucial importance in electric power industry. These imaging devices enable easy detection of degraded insulators of high voltage transmission lines, distributions and substations. They can see the emission of UV light when discharges occur at defect insulators. From design point of view solar blind UV cameras are actually bispectral imaging systems built by combining true UV camera with typical visible camera. These bispectral imaging system generate output image as overlay of typical visible image with UV image of analyzed UV source.

  • VIS-NIR Cameras

    Inframet

    Surveillance cameras based on CCD/CMOS/ ICCD/ EMCCD/EBAPS imaging sensors sensitive in visible and near infrared range are widely used in many long range surveillance applications as independent imagers or as part of a bigger multi-sensor surveillance systems. Majority of VIS-NIR cameras are used for day level applications but an increasing number of these cameras is used to enable surveillance in both night and day conditions. In both cases it is important to verify performance of these cameras under varying illumination conditions from very dark nights to ultra bright days. Important missions can fail due to too low sensitivity of VIS-NIR cameras at night conditions (dark, noisy images) or due to too low dynamic at ultra bright day conditions (saturated, blurred images). Next, it is important to use VIS-NIR cameras that generate high quality images in order to achieve maximal effective surveillance ranges.

  • VIS-SWIR FPA's

    Inframet

    Imaging electronic sensors sensitive in visible, near infrared, short wavelength infrared spectral bands that generate two dimensional electronic images have found mass applications in industry, defense, security, science, environmental protection, medicine etc. Imaging sensors sensitive only in VIS/NIR range are almost exclusively silicon chips manufactured using a series of technologies: CCD, CMOS. ICCD, EMCCD, EBAPS, sCMOS in color or monochromatic versions. Color VIS/NIR sensors are sensitive to light only in visible range when monochromatic VIS/NIR sensors are sensitive up to about 1000nm.

  • Targets

    Inframet

    Targets from group A are developed to support mostly testing infrared imaging systems understood as thermal imagers. These targets can be used also in testing visible/near infrared cameras or SWIR cameras but such application is not optimal. IR targets are mostly used in DT systems for testing thermal imagers and in MS systems for testing multi-spectral systems.
