How Infrared Technology Works

Infrared supplies its users the power to see a reality that is otherwise invisible. First developed for military purposes, thermal imaging provides users the ability to "see" subtle temperature differences, adding a whole new dimension to sight. Raytheon infrared can see when a bearing starts to need lubrication, the footsteps of a fugitive or how a fire is resisting all attempts to cool it off.

All objects, natural and man-made, emit infrared energy. The ability to distinguish very subtle levels of hot and cold can often reveal what was once thought invisible.

Infrared gives users the ability to see the unseen, know the unknown, dramatically improving how we live and work.
