Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the design rationale and actual applications of a completely programmable, infrared non-destructivetest workstation. The design concepts and goals will be discussed in detail, with emphasis on image generation and processing. The need for proprietary circuitry to provide fast image data transfer and analysis will be explained and depicted in block diagrams. Applications will show the results of generating high resolution thermal images and processing the image data to obtain definitive analysis ofthe exterior and interior ofthe test subject. Applications will also deal with programmable thermal sources for inducing heat into the test subjects for sequential, time lapsed, image analysis.
