Abstract:

Microbolometer based camera systems have made their way into the mainstream of readily available IR imagers. With the realized advantages over cooled systems of lower power consumption, short turn-on time, and higher reliability, these cameras are the clear choice for any application true hand held operation. Until recently, these uncooled systems were limited to output of a video image that displayed scene temperature differences.
