Paper Abstract

The Thermovision 1000 is the next logical extension of AGEMA's high performance infrared scanning systems. The unique scanning module, with its high optical invariant enables the use of a relatively small number of detector elements and a slow scan speed and still exceeds the performance of FLIR's which are currently in service. All of this is achieved with reduced complexity and higher reliability. A unique Fore-Optics design provides a dual FoV with remote operation. The extension of the Thermovision design principles to a state-of-the-art FLIR are discussed in terms of mechanical and optical design, detector application and thermal compensation system.
