Abstract
The technique of airborne commercial thermography is as old as the first radiometric camera, historically performed by someone holding the camera out the window of a small plane or helicopter. Even today, some people still use this primitive method, but many problems occur which degrade the effectiveness of their work Systems developed for military operations have integrated infrared sensors into gyrostabilized gimbals, however these systems do not measure temperature. Lack of radiometric data along with the price of military developed gimbal technology has made it difficult for the commercial lR user to have success with this technology. The main challenges for airborne thermography are related to sensor operation, data storage and integration.
