Electro-Optical Calibration & Characterization

System performance needs to be understood and tied to SI standards so that raw instrument output can be converted to scientific units to accomplish mission goals. Subsystems and components need to be well-characterized as early as possible to reduce program risk and costs. SDL has a long history of performing electro-optical testing, calibration, and characterization of diverse sensor systems and associated test equipment for both in-house and customer programs.
