SANTA BARBARA, CA --- Santa Barbara Infrared, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced infrared (IR) and electro-optical (E-O) test hardware for aerospace and defense, has partnered with Labsphere, Inc. to provide an unparalleled family of E-O test systems. The COLOSUS systems, which include collimated optics, software, and uniform sources, are complete test solutions for optical characterization of sensors and cameras, offering both collimated and flood-mode test configurations. The two companies have merged their engineering expertise in hardware and software to offer turnkey, fully-calibrated solutions.

Integrating spheres, blackbodies, collimators, target wheels, system peripherals, and traceable calibration data are combined and controlled by the IRWindows4™ automated test software package to provide a single, easy-to-use testing method for each of the new systems in the product series. In addition to the COLUSUS family of standard product configurations, custom test solutions can be designed to achieve specific program requirements.
