Abstract
Ten years ago infrared imaging systems available on the commercial market had reached a point in their development where accuracy, speed, thermal sensitivity and spatial resolution were sufficient to meet the vast majority of measurement requirements. They were severely limited in application potential, however, because the images produced by even the highest performing systems appeared on oscilloscope displays or Polaroid prints with no further image or data analysis offered. The development of the personal desk-top computer and its marriage to the commercial infrared imager was the key to an applications explosion for these systems. The addition of compatible videocassette recorders added even more to their versatility. This paper will trace the development of commercial infrared thermal imaging systems since the advent of the personal computer, provide an overview of some of the more outstanding features available today and make some projections into future capabilities.
