Wide FOV Target Projector

The Model 13649 is a broadband athermal portable target projector used for characterizing the performance of a wide variety of infrared sensor systems. The system incorporates SBIR standard components to provide accurate and precise stimulus to sensors under test in laboratory, depot and production line environments. Testing can be automated with the use of IRWindowsTM 4 test system controller that reduces test times and cost, while improving the consistency and accuracy of test results.
