The latest military applications of infrared thermal imaging include:
1. Infrared thermal imaging technology uses photoelectric technology to passively receive infrared rays radiated from various parts of the scene itself for detection. Infrared thermal imagers can break through human visual barriers, can detect objects in a completely dark environment, and can detect objects even in the presence of smoke and dust, and do not require light source lighting, so they can be used around the clock.
2. Due to the advantages of good concealment, strong anti-interference, and strong target recognition ability, infrared thermal imaging is playing an increasingly important role in both military and civilian fields.
3. Since the 1970s and 1980s, it has been gradually applied to sea, land and air battlefields. In order to strengthen their own defense capabilities and improve the level of night combat, many countries have included thermal imaging technology as an important technology of modern advanced weapons and equipment into their national defense development strategies and plans, and increased investment in thermal imaging research and development.
In short, infrared thermal imaging technology has a wide range of applications in the military field, including reconnaissance, guidance, early warning, confrontation, etc. It is an indispensable and important tactical and strategic means in modern warfare.
