The Telops Hyper-Cam is an advanced standoff infrared hyperspectral imaging system. This remote sensing instrument combines high spatial, spectral and temporal resolution providing unmatched performance. It is a versatile tool for remote detection, identification and quantification, and is ideal for field measurements.
Telops’ MS-IR family is composed of multispectral imaging cameras available in MW and VLW configurations. They have the ability to split a scene into eight separate spectral bands, and are particularly well suited for quartz mineral identification and methane detection and identification.
This high performance infrared camera family comes with InSb detectors and covers the 3µm to 5µm spectral range. Download the datasheet to learn more about its features and specifications.
The FAST-IR infrared cameras can be used for a variety of imaging applications including combustion analysis, and include key features such as sensitivity for targets that are difficult to detect, self-adjustment to fast temperature changes, and availability of real-time calibrated images.
The HDR-IR high-definition infrared camera covers extended scene temperature ranges. It is offered with an InSb or MCT detector, depending on the spectral range required.

Telops is pleased to announce its new partnership with Université de Reims, in France. Starting now, Telops will offer, in collaboration with Université de Reims, new measurement services to detect and characterize defects in a wide variety of materials using active infrared imaging.
Telops recently announces the signing of a distribution agreement with an important partner: Applied Infrared Sensing. This will result in a strengthened position for Telops in the Australian and New Zealand market.
Telops has developed a camera that is able to accurately detect minute methane leaks and emissions and film them in real time. With the Telops Hyper-Cam Methane, scientists are able to detect and identify methane present in a scene, and to locate it precisely in an image or video, pixel by pixel.
Telops, leader in the field of high performance infrared cameras and hyperspectral imaging systems for the Defense and Security, Environmental, Industrial and research markets, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest gas imaging camera the Hyper-Cam Methane.

High-speed infrared imaging is found to be a new diagnostic tool for studying ICEs. This Telops webinar offers a brief overview of optical engines, infrared (IR) narrowband imaging, and the investigation of a 4-cycle diesel ICE using high-speed IR imaging.
Telops has responded to the request of their customers for a smaller version of their Hyper-Cam hyperspectral camera and has miniaturized it enough so that it can be integrated into smaller systems and packages.
Vincent Farley with Telops offers insight into what to consider before selecting a high speed infrared camera.
Scientific research on different indicators of imminent volcanic eruptions is carried out on an ongoing basis, especially with volcanoes that are located close to urban areas. Remote sensing technologies are the preferred method of investigation due to the hazardous and sometimes unpredictable behavior of these volcanoes. The Telops Hyper-Cam has established itself as a reference tool for investigating clouds over large distances, and has illustrated its capabilities by imaging the Stromboli volcano, well known for its periodic eruptions of small magnitude containing various proportions of ash, lava, and gases. This application note highlights the benefits of using standoff infrared hyperspectral imaging for characterizing volcanic process.
Many types of natural gas from shale formations, including methane (CH4), are odorless, colorless, highly flammable, and leaks/emanations are important considerations for safety and the environment. Telops has recently launched the Hyper-Cam Methane, a field-deployable thermal infrared hyperspectral camera specially tuned for detecting methane infrared spectral features under ambient conditions and over large distances. This application note illustrates the benefits of using this imager a site where shale gas leaks unexpectedly happened during a geological survey near the Enfant-Jesus hospital in Quebec City, Canada, during December 2014.
When developing new materials, the characterization of mechanical properties becomes extremely important. Many different measurements as well as the nature of the material to be characterized dictate what parameters are needed and to what extent. Among the challenges encountered during the characterization of a material’s thermal patterns is the need for both high spatial and temporal resolution. Infrared imaging provides information about surface temperature that can be attributed to the stress response of the material and breaking of chemical bonds. This application note covers the process of performing tensile and shear tests on an variety of materials using high-speed and high-definition infrared imaging.
Engineers are continuously looking to improve the efficiency of internal combustion engines (ICEs) in areas such as lowering fuel consumption and reducing soot formation. Among the strategies used to improve combustion efficiency is the use of premixed air-methane charge in place of the use of air. In order to observe and analyze this technique, an optical engine is used with high-speed infrared imaging. This white paper walks through this experiment and investigates the different phases of the combustion cycle using four different spectral filters in order to see the difference in the exhaust fumes.
Some materials such as the fluoride and chalcogenide glasses used in the manufacture of optical fiber lasers cannot have any defects in order for the laser system to be efficient. This can be difficult because most existing quality control techniques are not compatible to these materials. To address this problem, a novel non-destructive testing (NDT) methodology has been developed based on infrared imaging. This application note shows how infrared imaging can be used to carry out NDT of optical fiber integrity. The methodology allows the screening of tens of meters in just a few seconds.
