There are two types of SPHEREA optical test bench:

  • Autonomous, to meet very specific needs,
  • Combined with a versatile bench, to enable multiple-system testing.

They are used in all life-cycle phases for optronics equipment:

  • in design to qualify performance,
  • in integration to validate operation,
  • in production to validate the manufacturing process,
  • in operation to diagnose failures or calibrate the equipment.

They are intended to be used in difficult environments, where a high level of system availability is required.

They can be used in fixed workshops but also be sent to external theatres of operations.
