Bears, Borders and Integrated Security Solutions

Did you hear the one about the bear that nearly caused a nuclear catastrophe? It was in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis. A guard at Volk US Air Force Base – home to a number of armed nuclear bombers – spotted a shadowy figure apparently attempting to scale the fence. The supposed Soviet […]

Reducing Fire Risk at Waste Management and Recycling Sites

Humans produce massive amounts of garbage each year. In the US alone, 700,000 tons of trash are produced per day.  All that garbage must go somewhere, and much of it ends up in waste management and recycling sites. These sites are at constant risk of fire. As the waste pile decomposes, chemical reactions that happen […]

8 Thermal Imaging Innovations That are Making Our Lives Better

Thermal Imagers for Early Cancer Detection Yes, you heard me right. Breast cancer, one of the most common cancers, affects millions each year worldwide, with late detection being one of the biggest problems. Breast thermography, now being practiced in a number of locations, is being used to scan for angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), one […]

11 Amazing Thermal Images You Have to See Right Now

In the last 10 years, thermal imaging technology has been developed for a seemingly endless host of applications, for everything from diagnostic thermography, to controlling fugitive VOC’s and harmful hydrocarbon emissions, to making cool music videos. Like the image of Abu Simel temple in Egypt above, the ten thermal images below tell a story that is usually hidden […]
