Paper Abstract

A variety of infrared instruments have been developed for the detection of intruders. Operating on the principle that all intruders emit infrared radiation, sensors have been designed to detect this radiation. This paper describes a number of applications in indoor area protection and outdoor surveillance. Also discussed are the advantages and limitations of such systems compared with other technologies.
