Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency
NCAGE Code: G2632
The Unit is located at Vironas, in Athens.
Hellenic Air Force Support Command
The Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency was established in order to service the Hellenic Air Force and the Armed Forces in general, to face the high technology demands of the modern theater of operations.
To this purpose contribute not only the excellent equipment of the Calibration Center, but also the skilled personnel, both military and civilian.
The Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency has been assigned with the calibration and repair responsibility for all HAF’s and Armed Forces equipment.
The Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency also issues calibration certificates as well as certification or deviation measurment reports and calibration tables.
All Certificates issued are fully traceable to International Standards.
Two of the determining factors for the succesful mission of the Air Force, are the accuracy and credibility of the Weapon Systems. The Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency is the core of the system which ensures the desirable accuracy and determinatively contributes to the credibility of the Weapon Systems.
To service this necessity the HAF methodically started the calibration activity in 1959, with the establishment of the Calibration Standards Laboratory at Hellinikon AB.
Today the calibrating and repairing works of the measurment or testing equipment, is carried out from four Regional Calibration Laboratories and one Limited Calibration Lab throughout the country, as well as the Central Calibration Service’s Laboratory at Vironas Attiki.
The accuracy and credibility of the Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency standards’ is ensured by the skilled personnel, the strict controlled environmental conditions at the calibration sites and the collaboration with the internationally approved NATIONAL BUREAU OF STANDARDS.
Equipment – Capabilities
The Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency operates three standalone laboratories which perform calibration on the following sectors:
- Electromechanics and Mechanics.
The laboratories are equipped with high precision equipment, calibration devices and reference standards.
With this equipment the Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency has the capability to measure almost all the parameters of the Electronics sector and the most important parameters of the Dimensions and Electromechanics sectors.
Most of the Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency’s models, are calibrated to the Service’s laboratories by means of the Reference Standards or the Primary Standards. Those devices are sent periodically to the U.S.A. (AFMETCAL) for calibration.
Instruments supported by Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency
- Voltage, Current, Power
- Resistance, Capacity, Inductance
- Mechanical and Electromechanical
Mobile Calibration Teams
Apart from the Central Agency’s Laboratories, the Hellenic Air Force Calibration Agency has mobile teams which visit the interested parties perform on-site calibration of the devices which cannot transprted to the central laboratory (either because of cost, massive size or sensitivity e.t.c).
The mobile teams are equipped with specific portable calibration devices and are transported with appropriate mobile calibration vans. Those vans have environment control and special anti-vibration system to prevent the standards’ fatigue during transportation.
With their available equipment, the mobile teams have the ability to calibrate and repair a range of devices, Electronic or Mechanical, and Electromechanical as well.
