The Torch Technologies Optics Research and Development Laboratory is furnished with over $1 million worth of Torch and Government Funded Equipment (GFE) dedicated to the research, development, calibration, and characterization of optical sensors. The lab is a 4000-square foot, limited-access, secure facility located in our corporate headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama. Lab equipment includes calibration, characterization, and maintenance equipment.
Our personnel operate the optical sensors and participate in all pre-test (missile flight test) activities, e.g., internal readiness tests, dry runs, mission rehearsals, etc. Personnel are responsible for the sensor performance, as well as for troubleshooting and repairing data acquisition computers, electronics, telescope mirror mounting support, etc., to ensure a good endgame data collection. The procedures that Torch has instituted for field test equipment support and maintenance has ensured that Torch sensors have proved operational for 100 percent of the field test events supported.
