VIGO System S.A. is a world-leading manufacturer of uncooled infrared photon detectors. In the 1980’s, a team led by Professor Józef Piotrowski, Ph.D., developed at the Military University of Technology a special technique for manufacturing detectors operating without cryocooling, which was subsequently implemented at the Company.

The Company’s unique position on the market is confirmed by the status of an official supplier of subassemblies for NASA. As a result of that co-operation, detectors developed and manufactured by VIGO System have been installed on the Curiosity rover exploring the surface of Mars.

A particularly important asset of the company is its ability to combine R&D works in the field of IR technology with manufacturing activity, all in a close co-operation with the customer.

The detectors manufactured by VIGO System are used in the following fields:
