NASA to Talk on Thermography Use in Shuttle at InfraMation 2005

Aug 2005
BOSTON, Aug. 24 -– InfraMation 2005 organizer Flir Systems Inc., a manufacturer of infrared imaging systems, announced that NASA representatives will present a paper at the infrared camera applications conference, taking place in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 17-21, 2005. Space agency professionals will discuss the use of infrared technology for an on-orbit reinforced carbon-carbon damage detection system, used to inspect the exterior shuttle surface to minimize risk and ensure safe return during re-entry.

The application of thermography (detecting and measuring infrared heat) was first considered for the shuttle program in 2003, a concept study was undertaken, and last summer, the shuttle program requested a multicenter effort to consider the feasibility of detecting subsurface damage using a handheld infrared camera. NASA officials will present details of this study at InfraMation 2005.

The annual InfraMation conference provides opportunities for novice participants to explore infrared camera selection and basic techniques, while professional thermographers can renew and maintain their thermography certification by attending InfraMation clinics. Clinics and presentations for the 2005 conference cover fields ranging from plant operations –- with clinics in building science, mechanical, roofing and electrical operations –- to scientific and medical infrared applications including research and development, medical/health care and equine/veterinary thermography.

GLOSSARY
thermography
The recording of a scanned pattern on a photographic medium, utilizing the infrared radiation naturally emitted by the object, as well as infrared receptors, such as photoelectric cells.
