Fast Thermal Imaging: Muzzle Flash Analysis
By TELOPS
Significant technical challenges need to be overcome when it comes to detection, location, and identification of small caliber hostile gunfire. The key characteristic for the detection of a small caliber gunfire, which also leads to the most obvious technical challenge, is its short, few milliseconds long, muzzle flash.
