FLIR Systems Cameras to Aid SARS Screening

PORTLAND, Ore., May 5 -- FLIR Systems Inc. announced today it has received orders for 50 of its ThermaCAM thermography cameras for use at airports, hospitals and other locations in Taiwan and Korea to help detect fever, a possible precursor to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The cameras can accurately measure temperature and can be programmed to detect body temperature, the company said.

Airline passengers and visitors to hospitals and other locations will be asked to look into the infrared camera to record their facial temperatures. The cameras, which FLIR says measure temperature to one tenth of a degree, include image storage and analysis capability and come in a variety of configurations, from lightweight handheld systems resembling a flashlight to integrated fixed installations.

The technology measures infrared radiation, or heat, that is emitted from objects. Traditional applications for this technology include predictive and preventive maintenance, condition monitoring, research and development and electrical and building inspection.
