‘Seeing in total darkness in a maritime environment — the advantages of thermal imaging’
Practically all of us associate the sea with holidays and fun, but it can be a dangerous place, especially at night time and in bad weather. Yachts collide with other vessels and run on cliffs or other objects, resulting in heavy damages and sometimes even loss of life. Some of these accidents happen in open water, others while navigating in harbours and ports. A number of tools are available to help us detect potential dangers before they become a real hazard — thermal-imaging technology from Flir Systems is one of them.

Flir Systems has introduced the Flir Microscopy Stand — a complete solution for the thermal evaluation of very small objects.
County Deer Stalking is using the Scout PS-32 thermal-imaging camera from Flir Systems in its work to control the deer population in countryside locations in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex. The company, which uses culling as its method of deer management, believes that thermal imaging is a useful addition to traditional deer-stalking equipment.
Scout PS-Series handheld night-vision cameras from Flir Systems make it possible for farmers, reserve managers, researchers, gamekeepers and wildlife enthusiasts to watch the nocturnal activity of animals on their TVs. Prices for the cameras start at around £1,300.
Technical note: thermal-imaging cameras — a fast and reliable tool for testing solar panels download
The use of thermal-imaging cameras for solar panel evaluation offers several advantages. Anomalies can clearly be seen on a crisp thermal image and — unlike most other methods — thermal cameras can be used to scan installed solar panels during normal operation. Thermal cameras also allow large areas to be scanned within a short time frame.
This e-book from Flir Systems demonstrates the scope of thermal imaging in automation applications. The company reveals how its A-series camera can work in the most hostile environments with no need for additional lightings.
