SCD.USA Infrared LLC is a full service US-based organization. We offer tailored maintenance programs to fit our customer’s needs.
SCD.USA-IR’s Optical Test Facility (OTF) provides a unique capability to fully characterize both semi-active and passive VIS/SWIR/MWIR/LWIR systems. The OTF includes a 10-inch broad-band collimator enabling evaluation over the system Field of Regard including MTF, NEDT, and NEP. The OTF also supports testing of system-level metrics including Target Resolution, Receiver ROC, Range Accuracy, Dynamic Tracking Accuracy and System Boresight Accuracy. We also have instrumentation and analysis software to perform Low Light Level testing down to 1/2 femto-Joule per pixel. Our environmental test equipment allows system and component testing over temperature from -45°c to 80°c as well as random and sinusoidal vibration of small assemblies and components.
Maintenance & Repairs
Our factory-trained staff uses the latest test equipment to troubleshoot and repair detectors, video engines and camera systems. Our technicians are certified by SCD to perform detector repairs and they are certified to replace the Ricor and Thales cryogenic coolers. We are equipped with an Optical lab for repairs or evaluating camera systems and optics. Our clean room areas reduce particle contamination based on ISO 6 clean room standards which allows our staff to disassemble and rebuild detectors, optics and replace coolers.
SCD recommends that the Dewar getters are fired every four years as part of a Preventive Maintenance Program to ensure the Dewar assembly’s vacuum is working properly and to extend cryo-cooler lifetime. We provide replacement of failed or end-of-lifetime cryo-coolers to bring your detector or system back to full operational capability. Cryo-cooler replacement includes the replacement of the cryo-cooler with a new unit, replacing any defective electrical or mechanical parts and firing the getters to ensure original high vacuum conditions. Each repair includes a full performance test report similar to the OEM Acceptance Test as well as a warranty. For more information, please contact our business development team.
