Night seminar demonstrates the power of thermal imaging

04 February, 2008
You can leave the carrots at home when you attend FLIR CVS's night seminar on thermal imaging systems because their cameras can recognise a human intruder at up to half a kilometre in complete darkness.
The Imperial War Museum at Duxford in England is the venue for a must-attend seminar on thermal imaging held by FLIR CVS on the 12th February. Starting at the unusual time of 4pm, FLIR's thermography experts will take advantage of the night sky to demonstrate the effectiveness of thermal imaging in perimeter protection which will be useful to anyone specifying surveillance applications that may be required after dark.

The seminar will answer many of the questions asked when considering this technology, the most popular of which is "How far can I see with a thermal imaging camera?"

The answer depends on the lens and equipment and on the definition of "seeing". Detecting the presence of an object can stretch to kilometres, recognising what that object is can be achieved at distances of hundreds of metres and identifying the object depends on profile and recognition features but can also extend to distances that might surprise anyone that associates the technology with the grainy monochrome blobs of a decade ago.

There are countless applications for thermal imaging and this is an opportunity to explore them. With focus on remote surveillance for such end applications as railways and pipelines with go/no-go decision criteria, the ability to spot intruders and identify them as human at any time of day or night could demand the range and flexibility of a thermal imaging system.

Anyone interested in the seminar can contact FLIR CVS direct or send an e-mail to me and I'll pass it on.
