  • We are proud to inform you that INFRAMET (www.inframet.com) has become recently the only company on the world market capable to manufacture high-tech test equipment for testing all types of electro-optical surveillance systems (thermal imagers, CCD/CMOS/ICCD/EBAPS cameras, night vision devices, laser range finders, laser designators, laser illuminators, multi-sensor surveillance system, SWIR imagers) and components of such surveillance systems (image intensifier tubes, IR FPA sensors, CCD/CMOS/ ICCD/EBAPS sensors, IR optics, visible optics, SWIR optics). In order to celebrate this unique achievement by our young dynamic company we plan to launch a scheme of free demonstrations of technical capabilities of our test systems in 2011 year. The most important and unique feature of this plan is possibility for free evaluation of our test systems.
  • The companies/scientific centers/university groups qualified to our demonstration plan will be able to evaluate one of our test systems free of charge for a period up to half an year at their own facilities (only costs of transport are expected to be covered by the borrower). It means practically that for up to half an year a test system of commercial value often over one hundred thousand USD can be used free of charge. December 20, 2010 is the deadline for presenting interest in taking part in the FES program (free evaluation scheme). If interested please send us email with the following data: institution, address, the hierarchical list of interesting test systems, suggested time needed to evaluate, and other data useful to evaluate the applicant institution (see evaluation criterions below). The letter should be confirmed by the management of applicant institution.
  • The following criterions shall used to evaluate applications to FES program:
    1. Is the Applicant from a country/region where Inframet products are unknown or little known?
    2. Is the Applicant a well known manufacturer of electro-optical systems/components with whom Inframet can potentially start/continue a long term cooperation?
    3. Is the Applicant a well known educational/scientific institutions with whom Inframet can potentially start/continue a long term cooperation?
    4. Can the Applicant be treated as a local opinion-making body?
    5. Can the Applicant potentially buy Inframet test system after positive evaluation (no confirmation is needed at this stage)?
    6. Can the Applicant potentially help Inframet in marketing its products?
    7. Level of possible logistical problems (distance, customs requirements, can Inframet engineers control online the test system at applicant facilities during demonstration and training)
    8. Educational level of the Applicant (how much training is needed, is there a risk that the equipment can be damaged)
    9. Can Inframet potentially start cooperation with the Applicant within framework of EU scientific programs?
    10. Estimated trust level to the applicant institution (is there any risk that we equipment shall not be returned in time, is the applicant a well known institution of good public opinion)
    11. Ratio of number applicants to the number of available test systems.
