4 April 1997 Thermal studies from images obtained with a thermal scanning system
Author Affiliations +
A two channel scanning system for the visualization and storage of thermal images has been constructed. The system may be installed in aircrafts for the acquisition and storage of aerial images or used in surface for terrestrial images. Detection in the 3-5 micrometer spectral region with indium antimonide (InSb) detector and in the 8-14 micrometer spectral region with mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) detector is provided in normal use; detection can be extended to near infrared by replacing In Sb detector by silicon or germanium detectors. Images are acquired in real time through an acquisition board, stored in the hard disk of a Pentium PC and displayed in a SVGA monitor. Characteristics of the system and the software developed are described. Some thermal images obtained are shown.
