Hear our Thermal Experts talk about their thermal imaging tips.

Tom Gibbs, our US Sales Director, starts the series with a small tip about surveillance ranges, AKA – DRI:

When your customer tells you that they need to see a target at 5 km, you first need to determine what they want to see.

A human? A tank? A cat? The size of the target effects the range.

Then, ensure you and your customer are talking about the same thing. What does “seeing” mean? We normally define this by using terms such as Detection, Recognition and Identification – AKA: DRI.

Ask your customer how many pixels they need to see?

Stay tuned for the next tip – coming soon!
