Paper Abstract

The Strategic Air Command (SAC) used overhead infrared reconnaissance imagery to detect heat losses from the roofs of buildings. The effort was highly successful and revealed not only individual heat losses but also systemic losses in entire classes of buildings. On-the-spot inspections of buildings experiencing heat losses confirmed the accuracy and reliability of overhead infrared as a heat loss detector.
