The COLOSUS line of electro-optical test systems from Santa Barbara Infrared Inc. and Labsphere Inc. include collimated optics, software and uniform sources for the optical characterization of sensors and cameras. The devices are offered in both collimated and flood-mode test configurations. Integrating spheres, blackbodies, collimators, target wheels, system peripherals and traceable calibration data are combined and controlled by the IRWindows™5 automated test software package to provide a single, easy-to-use testing method for each of the new systems in the product series. Custom test solutions can be designed to achieve specific program requirements.
