Paper Abstract

A survey is made of the principles and methods involving scanning the field of view of a single infra-red detector to form a thermal image or "thermogram." Scanning parameters and practical tradeoffs are considered as well as scanning methods ranging from oscillating mirrors, rotating drums and prisms and counter-rotating prisms. Also considered are signal processing and display techniques and methods of image enhancement.
