Uncooled infrared imaging technology provides a new, affordable, high performance tool for both conventional and emerging applications in the surveillance and law enforcement markets. This technology offers users significant advantages, including high reliability, low power consumption, excellent image clarity, and good performance in adverse environments. This paper briefly discusses the various technologies used for night imaging, the advantages that infrared systems offer law enforcement and surveillance applications, how uncooled infrared systems fit into this market, and the status of uncooled microbolometer systems at Lockheed Martin.
