Bodkin Design Manufactures OEM Blackbody Components for Marvin Test Solutions

Bodkin Design OEM Blackbody designed for automated self-calibration of infrared systems

Bodkin Design and Engineering is a valued supplier that we know we can depend on for OEM components and subassemblies that meet our most demanding requirements.

Bodkin Design & Engineering has custom-engineered a blackbody infrared radiance standard for Marvin Test Solutions, to integrate into their modular target simulators. The blackbody unit supplied by BD&E is a derivative of their MRDT-50 infrared calibrator product, originally developed to calibrate infrared tracking cameras at White Sands missile range.

Marvin Test Solutions incorporates the device into its MTS-916 series of Modular Target Simulators. The MTS-916 is part of a suite of armament and munitions test solutions that support the testing and verification of optically-guided weapon systems such as Maverick or Hellfire missiles. The testing of optically-guided weapons is complex, and a complete test solution requires a device such as the MTS-916 to simulate either a stationary or moving target. Target simulation ensures that the optical seeker can track and terminally guide the weapon to the target.

“Bodkin Design and Engineering is a valued supplier that we know we can depend on for OEM components and subassemblies that meet our most demanding requirements,” said Lowell Parsons, Director of Test Engineering for Marvin Test Solutions. “Their focus on quality and customer support enables us to continue delivering the advanced mil/aero test solutions our customers need.”

Bodkin Design & Engineering has recently been working with MassMEP, a resource committed to manufacturing growth in the state of Massachusetts, to grow their OEM business profile. The…
