Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
Nature of Requirements: 

Context: The Munitions Experimental Test Centre (METC) of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) is an organization which is mandated to acquire data during tests and experiments on ultra-fast phenomena as projectiles in flight and explosions. Temperature measurements are required in several experiments. Thermocouples, while useful in some tests, cannot be used at extreme temperatures or in experiments with vibrations as in firing projectiles or explosions. These vibrations and extreme temperatures (up to 2000 ° C) are outside of the range of the best thermocouples currently on the market. In addition, the reliability of measurement of a thermocouple depends directly on the ability to get and keep a good physical contact between it and the part that we want to measure, which is more difficult in experiments comprising vibrations. The best way to overcome this is thermography which allows taking temperature measurements up to 2000 ° C and this without the need of any physical contact with the weapon or the part to be analyzed.
 To make accurate and reliable measurements, the latest models of high-speed infrared cameras can take images at a frequency of 1000 Hz, and this at resolutions of over 20 000 pixels. There are also high definition infrared cameras of over 1.3 megapixels which allow high accuracy measurement on large objects. These cameras also allow synchronization between them to be able to take continuous measurements without data loss and over a wide temperature range.

Deliverables:  Provide and deliver one (1) high speed infrared camera including one optional identical camera.

Trade Agreements:  The requirement is subject to the provisions of the World Trade Organization Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), and the Chile, Colombia, Honduras, Korea, Panama, Peru, Ukraine Trade Agreements with Canada.
