Let's build-up the test bench you always imagined, fully adapted to your testing needs!

With the IRCOL test bench, HGH can create any testing bench perfectly well adapted to the characterization and performance validation of any electro-optical system:


  • Visible to SWIR cameras,
  • Night Vision devices,
  • Thermal imagers,
  • Laser rangefinders
  • Multi-axes sighting devices...

A versatile test bench, fully controlled by the INFRATEST Software

The IRCOL test bench's core is the IRCOL collimator, featuring a diffraction-limited off-axis mirror-based projector equipped with a motorized target wheel. The INFRATEST software completes the IRCOL system, for the automated control of the bench and the computation of an exhaustive range of measurements:

  • Noise functions,
  • NETD and other thermal resolutions,
  • Bad pixel location and non-uniformity correction maps,
  • MTF and spatial resolution data,
  • Distortion and field of view,
  • MRTD, TOD and DRI ranges calculation,
  • MRC and ranges calculation,
  • Multiple axes alignment control,
  • Laser rangefinder accuracy measurement, ...
