Low light camera
Infrared vision is used extensively by the military for night vision, navigation, surveillance and targeting. For years, it developed slowly due to the high cost of the equipment and the low quality of available images. Since the development of the first commercial infrared cameras in the second half of the 1960s, however, the availability of new generations of infrared cameras coupled with growing computer power is providing exciting new civilian (and military) applications, to name only a few: astronomy, buildings and infrastructure, works of art, aerospace components and processes, maintenance, defect detection and characterization, law enforcement, surveillance and public services, medical and veterinary thermal imaging.
