IRCameras provides the most technologically advanced infrared imaging systems available for scientific, industrial and military applications. In addition to our extensive line-up of standard commercial infrared cameras and IDCAs, we offer custom design and build services to meet unique optical, packaging and space-constrained requirements.

IRCameras is a subsidiary of Santa Barbara Infrared, a long-time leader in the design and manufacture of electro-optical (E-O) test instrumentation. SBIR, in turn, is part of HEICO Corporation, a technology-based aerospace company that has been engaged in niche market segments within the aerospace, aviation and electronics industries for more than 60 years. Together we are uniquely positioned to advance development of thermal imaging technologies, and to commercialize these technologies for a wide range of applications including:

  • Nondestructive testing
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Online process monitoring and control
  • Scientific research
  • Target signature
  • Security and surveillance

We offer a range of purchase, rental and lease options, and a full line of accessories including software, data acquisition systems and optics. Our goal is to make your infrared imaging program a complete success. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your requirements, and to explore how we might be able to assist in creating and supporting the optimal program to meet your particular infrared imaging requirements.

Santa Barbara Infrared


Santa Barbara Infrared (SBIR) designs and manufactures the world’s most technologically advanced test instrumentation used to test, calibrate and validate the performance of VisibleNear Infrared (NIR), SWIR, MWIR, LWIRLaser and Electro-Optical (E-O) sensor components and systems. SBIR was founded in 1986 and quickly became the leader in the electro-optical (E-O) test instrumentation field.  In 1999 SBIR became part of HEICO Corporation, an aerospace company based in Hollywood, Florida.  SBIR’s focus is on providing well engineered, cost effective hardware and software solutions to the E-O community. Our extensive design capabilities cover the spectrum of infrared, laser, visible and dynamic scene projection applications. SBIR’s proven systems engineering expertise combined with a practical, design-for-manufacturing approach results in production and custom instrumentation for the most discerning customers.

SBIR has four main product lines: Standard ProductsCommercial Test SystemsMilitary Test Systems, and Dynamic Scene Projection Systems.

SBIR offers an extensive line of reliable, high performance test equipment used to characterize and calibrate IR, Visible and Laser systems. Products include blackbodies, visible sources, target wheels, targets, collimators, target projectors, laser test modules/systems and IRWindows™ software for automated testing. These modular, cost effective instruments are user-friendly and easily integrated into automated test systems. For more information, please click on one of the links or visit

Sensor Technology Engineering

Sensor Technology Engineering

Sensor Technology Engineering was founded in 1996 to address the need for an effective radiation detector that could be distributed broadly amongst Law Enforcement and First Responder personnel. From that vision, the original Radiation Pager was born.

The Radiation Pager quickly became entrenched with U.S. Federal Agencies and soon spread to State and Local organizations, and then to our allies overseas. The Radiation Pager was the first broadly used Personal Radiation Detector (PRD), and tens of thousands of these units have now been delivered.

Following the success of the Radiation Pager, expanded its product portfolio to create additional class-leading products such as the Handheld Radiation Monitor (HRM), the Linear Radiation Monitor (LRM), and the RadPack Max.

All of these products have been developed in accordance with a philosophy that mission-critical field sensors should be reliable, rugged, and simple to operate. They should require minimal training and should be built for a long operational life, at low operating cost. Above all else, the sensors must be sensitive, so we’ve committed to using the best detectors available – large Cesium Iodide crystal scintillators with quality photomultiplier tubes for gamma radiation, and high-pressure Helium-3 tubes for neutron detection.

Based in Santa Barbara, California, Sensor Technology Engineering was acquired by the HEICO Corporation in 2018. HEICO is a U.S. company, focused primarily on aerospace technologies and manufacturing. HEICO is based in Hollywood, FL.
