  1. Nordic District Heating Networks Monitored From The Sky With Thermal Imaging
    4/13/2017

    According to some researchers, district heating is the cheapest method for a city to make cuts on carbon emissions. District heating is a system that distributes hot water or steam to a centralized residential or commercial location through an underground network of pipes. Maintaining a large district heating network can be a difficult task, so to help large Scandinavian cities to effectively monitor and maintain their district heating networks, the company Termisk Systemteknik has developed a district heating scanning system from the sky, based on thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems.

  2. FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras Help Researchers Monitor And Evaluate Joining Techniques
    11/21/2016

    New composite materials such as carbon are being used more frequently in many markets such as automotive, aircraft, and railway manufacturing. These materials can offer benefits for the design and production of vehicles including higher performance levels or lighter weights, but also come with challenges in terms of manufacturing, inspection, and maintenance. Researchers at the Laboratory for Materials and Joining Technology (LWF) are focusing on the development of joining techniques for these composite materials.

  3. Infrared Cameras: Advanced Temperature Measurement For Today's Breakthrough Medical Research
    10/28/2016

    The versatility, affordability, and high performance of IR cameras provide a powerful remedy to gaining accurate temperature measurements in medical discoveries. 

  4. Mobile Infrared Scanning — A High-Tech, Alternative To Traditional Bridge Inspection Methods
    10/25/2016

    Thousands of bridges throughout the United States are structurally deficient and will require maintenance, repair, or replacement at an estimated total cost of $20.5 billion annually over the next 12 years. Identifying structural deficiencies in concrete bridges through traditional methods can be time consuming, and unsafe for both divers and inspectors. A high-tech alternative uses a truck-mounted infrared camera to pinpoint deliminated areas on concrete deck surfaces.
