Space Based Infrared System

SDL designed, fabricated, and tested the IR Radiometer and Source System (IRSS) for GenCorp Aerojet (Northrop). The facility is used for calibration and final acceptance testing on the completed SBIRS systems. SDL also performed spectral tests on the IR spectral filters used in the SBIRS High infrared sensors. SDL developed the capability to test and characterize these filters in an optical configuration that matches the flight sensor configuration.
