Paper Abstract

The evolution in the UK of thermal imaging systems for use in submarines is outlined. A system is described in which a high-performance thermal imager is configured in such a way as to fit within a tubular structure while providing dual-field operation with an elevation facility, giving compatibility with a range of periscope designs. The aspects peculiar to submarine applications are discussed for each part of the system, and a technique for providing rapid surveillance using thermal imaging is described.
