Design features of a measurement facility for the prelaunch evaluation of ir space sensors are described. After a listing of the facility’s major capabilities, an analysis of its internal calibration process is given. This is followed by a discussion of test beam characteristics and some performance limitations. Concepts for improvements are presented.
