SPIE 2010 Overview

Dear  , 
Another successful SPIE tradeshow has come and gone leaving the military and defense community with plenty of exciting new technologies to look forward to in the years to come.  Thanks to all that visited our display in the exhibition halls.  It was good to see everyone again.  For those who couldn't make it, we hope to see you next year. 

SBIR introduced two new products at the show: our new IRWindows ™ software for automated sensor testing and the Common E-O test system.  Information about these new products is available by contacting us at [email protected].

SBIR was involved in numerous sessions and provided paper presentations on the following two topics:
  1. Non-optically Combined Multi-spectral Source for IR, Visible and Laser Testing
  2. LWIR Nuc Using an Uncooled Microbolometer Camera  (Dynamic Scene Projection)

The papers will be available on our website for your enjoyment  in the next week or so:  If you would like a copy beforehand, please send an email to [email protected] and we'll be certain to send one to you immediately.

43rd Annual IR Detector & System Applications 5-day Short Course
For the past 43 years, the University of California at Santa Barbara has offered the Infrared Detector and System Applications Course.  This is a one week short course in their post graduate extension program.  This has been a very successful short course program, each year attracting a large number of participants from the military, aerospace, scientific and commercial IR communities. 

Santa Barbara Infrared has participated in this program for many years, providing an exhibit of test equipment during their lab session on testing. Later in the evening SBIR hosts an off-site demonstration of live testing of infrared cameras where guests are welcomed to a more casual environment and open discussion of test theory and applications. 
Visit: for course details and logistics. If you do plan on attending the course, please leave Thursday evening open for a visit to our facility for food, drinks and a demonstration of camera testing.
