L-1 Standards and Technology, Inc.
Booth Space 2
Exhibit Manager: Steven Lorentz
L-1 is the leading provider of absolute radiometric measurement solutions for national laboratories and space agencies around the world. For example, L-1 is the world’s primary supplier of cryogenic absolute radiometers, used by nations to establish their primary optical standards. Utilizing extensive in-house design capabilities, L-1 has developed radiometric instrumentation for both laboratory and space flight applications. We currently have two successful instruments in-orbit and are partnered for the development of future missions. In addition to our cryogenic radiometers, laboratory instruments include a cryogenic infrared collimator, detector calibration systems, stable detectors and pre-amplifiers. Our focus is the development of instrumentation for laboratory and on-orbit calibration of remote sensors for both government and commercial missions.
L-1 has recently undertaken a significant expansion of our laser based calibration facilities and can now provide radiance calibration for sensors from 350 nm to as long as 4 um. This facility provides a commercial alternative to the NIST SIRCUS or NASA GLAMR facilities, while providing NIST traceability.
L-1 is in Manassas, VA, just south of Dulles International Airport and the large aerospace technology corridor. We are a small business with 15 employees, occupying 13,000 square feet of office, laboratory and clean room space.
Space Dynamics Laboratory
