  1. Finding Resolution In A Distant Image

    IR cameras on the military test range often need to focus on far-away objects. Despite common misperceptions, zoom lenses work in IR cameras, but understanding spatial resolution is key. 

  2. Software: A Critical Component Of Any IR Camera

    Software provides users of IR cameras with a work environment in which all the camera functions take place. Choosing the right software can greatly expand the capabilities of an IR camera.

  3. The Challenges Of Infrared Radiance Measurement

    IR cameras are used on the military test range primarily to measure the radiance of various targets. Understanding how radiance measurements work allows users to decide whether a camera is properly calibrated for their application.

  4. Advantages Of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras

    The integration of Type II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detectors into commercially available thermal cameras in recent years has allowed researchers and scientists to solve several of the most difficult temperature measurement challenges. In this webinar FLIR will discuss how infrared cameras with cooled LWIR SLS detectors deliver significant improvements in speed, temperature range, uniformity, and stability while providing examples of their performance benefits when used is various high speed thermal measurement applications.

  5. Measurements At The Speed Of Light

    Measuring the thermal signatures of rockets exploding or aircraft in flight occur at high speeds. Understanding the factors that go into making those measurements will help users determine if a camera is suited for the job.

  6. FLIR T500-Series Macro Mode: Single-Lens Solution For Imaging Small Targets

    Thermal cameras are used throughout many stages of R&D and quality assurance. Electronics inspection is one of the most common applications for thermal imaging, which typically involves finding hot spots on printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and ensuring that various components are working within their design limits.

  7. What To Consider When Selecting An IR Camera For Military Test Range Applications

    Thermal cameras can allow many types of infrared measurements on the military test range. Here are some of the factors you should keep in mind when purchasing an IR camera.

  8. Ultra-High-Speed Thermography

    Recent advances in IR camera technologies, such as fast camera detector readouts and high performance electronics, allow high-speed imagery. This article is part 5 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of ultra-high-speed thermography with IR cameras.

  9. Filters Extend IR Camera Usefulness

    Materials that are transparent or opaque to IR wavelengths present problems in non-contact temperature measurements with an IR camera. In some cases, an IR filter can be placed in the camera’s optical path to overcome these problems. This article is part 4 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how filters can be used to extend IR camera usefulness.

  10. Getting The Most From Your IR Camera

    Understanding IR camera calibration and corrections help ensure accurate temperature measurements and thermographic mapping. This article is part 3 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how to get the most out of using your IR camera.
