Vigo System is a world-leading manufacturer of uncooled infrared (IR) photon detectors. Vigo System’s origins go back to a team of researchers at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland, that developed a special technique for manufacturing detectors operating without cryocooling. The company’s unique position on the market is confirmed by the status of an official supplier of subassemblies for NASA, resulting in Vigo System detectors being installed on the Curiosity rover exploring the surface of Mars.
With its headquarters located near Warsaw, Poland, Vigo System provides a broad portfolio of photoconductive and photovoltaic IR detectors based on materials like HgCdTe (MCT) or InAs/InAsSb. Further detector product ranges offered by Vigo System are superlattice detectors or IR detector arrays. Beyond the detector components, various series of selected line or configurable line infrared (IR) detection modules are available, providing the infrared photodetector integrated with signal processing electronics, optics, heat dissipation systems and other components in a common package.
