Thermal Imaging Module
By: Nelson Nguyen
When was thermal imaging invented and who created it?
Thermal imaging devices were first made in the late 1950s and 1960s. It was developed by: Texas instruments, Hughes Aircraft, and Honeywell. These companies developed detectors that scanned the surrounding areas and produced images.
Who uses it and what is it used for?
The current thermal imaging modules were first used for the military. Thermal imaging provided ability to see and target enemies through the dark at night, or across a smoke-covered battlefield. Thermal imaging later on was helpful to military services around the world, also making it helpful to fire services and law enforcements.
