Paper Abstract

The advantages of using far-infrared technology in guiding systems, warning systems or surveillance systems have been demonstrated in defense applications through a large span of imaging functions such as detection, target recognition and positive identification in complex environments. Used as a complementary tool in a set of camera sensing technologies, the far-Infrared thermal camera provides the key sense to improve system performance and increase human classification robustness. This enhanced capability relies on the detection of the unique thermal signature of a pedestrian in any weather and light conditions, day or night, without being glared by the sun or any light source. Implementing vision system based on shutterless far-infrared solution into an autonomous detection system can reduce the rate of false positive detection. Being an imaging technology, far-infrared camera using ULIS technology can be easily integrated into standard platform while minimizing computation resources required by detection algorithms thanks to the thermal signature detection.
