Thermal Imaging Systems have found innumerable applications in industry, research, medicine and the military. One of the most valuable applications is in non-contact temperature and radiation measurements. This paper explores the unique problems that are encountered when making thermal image measurements in the field. An approach to solving these problems by the separation of the field data acquisition process from the lab data analysis is presented. Desired features for each of the three instruments involved in this process; the radiometer, data recorder, and data analyzer, are discussed and examples of typical applications are shown.
