FLIR Systems has introduced FLIR Research Studio, a new thermal imaging software for Research and Development (R&D) and science professionals. Available for a free trial download, FLIR Research Studio is designed for use across multiple platforms and in 22 languages, to allow R&D and engineering teams to collaborate on thermal data collection, analysis, and sharing. In combination with a FLIR thermal imaging camera for science applications, FLIR Research Studio provides an ideal solution for R&D teams.
Easy-to-use and optimized for collaboration for users at all levels, FLIR Research Studio provides the powerful tools needed for analyzing complex live and recorded thermal data and collecting meaningful results. Available for Windows, MacOS, or Linux, Research Studio users can record and evaluate data across platforms from multiple FLIR science cameras and recorded sources simultaneously. The software empowers users to visualize the impacts of temperature differences across their subject and generate line profile and time versus temperature plots from several data files at once.
Rich with features such as custom workspaces, FLIR Research Studio helps research and development teams work efficiently and productively. Plug-and-play connections with multiple FLIR thermal cameras and a simplified “connect, record, share” workflow allow users to quickly start collaborating. Users can also save their workspaces to allow colleagues to view the results and export videos, CSV files, and other third-party formats for easier sharing and reporting. With the addition of multiple language options for precise translation, these features help reduce the potential for misinterpretation of results and increase efficiency.
FLIR Research Studio is available for purchase or as a free trial download. For more information about FLIR Research Studio, please visit https://www.flir.com/research-studio
Collecting Thermal Data at High Speeds
FLIR Systems has published a new guide book for military scientists, engineers and ballisticians interested in using thermal imaging for long range measurement and projectile tracking.
With the abundance of temperature measurement tools available, why should researchers and engineers consider thermal imaging?
One of the greatest advantages of thermal imaging cameras for military research and range applications is their ability to image and record thermal data without the need to touch the target object under test. Many high-end R&D and science-grade cameras also offer the speed, spatial resolution, triggering, and advanced timing features required to characterize fast thermal transients and targets moving at high speed. Thermal cameras can also detect the most subtle temperature changes, with the best cameras able to measure differences of less than 0.02°C.
Written by FLIR’s thermal imaging experts this free guidebook will give you a comprehensive understanding of research and science thermography for military research and test range applications from how IR cameras work to how they can benefit your project. Chapters in the guidebook include: Finding resolution in a distant image; Measuring at the speed of light; The challenges of infrared radiance measurement and Software – a critical component of any thermal imaging camera. The guide also provides advice on what to consider when selecting a thermal imaging camera, and provides recommendations for different military test range applications.
