FLIR Thermal Cameras are Used for Night Navigation


A FLIR thermal camera, formally known as a forward looking infrared camera, is an imaging device that is typically used on military and civilian vehicles and air craft to help drivers to navigate their vehicles through fog or in extremely dark night conditions. These systems were originally developed beginning in 1978 and installed on vehicles involved in conducting energy audits. Today they are readily available for civilian cars and trucks, to improve visibility in poor driving conditions.

Sensors installed in a FLIR thermal camera detect infrared radiation, usually emitted from a heat source to create a picture of objects. Although similar to night vision cameras, these devices detect distinctly different wavelengths of infrared light, at night vision cameras operate in the range of visible light and near-infrared ranges of 0.4 to 1.0 μm. A FLIR thermal camera operates in one of two ranges: long wave and medium wave. Cameras detecting long waves are often called far infrared devices as they operate at 8 to 12 μm. They are used for sensing heat sources such as human bodies or vehicle engines that are a few miles away.

A variety of applications use these devices on vehicles in a mobile setting. These include ground-based security, search and rescue, transportation safety, firefighting, gas and fluid leak detection, border and maritime patrol, law enforcement and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) detection. A FLIR thermal camera can also be used for surveillance of warm-blooded animals, including those that present nighttime road hazards such as deer, and monitoring of wild game habitats, making them useful for hunters.

No matter what environment you’ll be driving in, you can rest assured knowing your FLIR thermal camera can penetrate thick fog and driving rain to give you a better picture of the road ahead. These cameras are built with commercial applications in mind, so their quality is second to none. You can rely on a FLIR thermal camera day in and day out to help you find your way and avoid obstacles.

At AmericanSecurityCo.com we offer FLIR cameras, mounting brackets and multifunction modules. We have everything you need to successfully install a FLIR thermal camera on your car, truck or SUV.
