What Are Thermal Imaging Cameras?
Thermal Imaging Cameras are able to measure an object’s temperature at high accuracy in real-time. They enable quick detection of elevated skin temperatures. They are capable of discovering and tracking people’s body temperature in crowded public areas. Thermal imaging equipment can also easily be installed and implemented in places such as airports, hospitals, clinics, office buildings, cruise ships, and any large public gathering location.
Benefits of Thermal Cameras for Government & Military
The person who handles the thermal imaging system is not required to be physically close to the person being evaluated. In fact, the person who handles the thermal imaging system could be in a different area or room.
Scientific studies show that, when used correctly, thermal imaging systems generally measure surface skin temperature accurately. This is very helpful as the fever has been proven to be
one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.
The thermal imaging system may measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead or oral (mouth) thermometer that requires a close distance or physical contact with the person being evaluated. This makes access and traffic flow faster and smoother.

Thermal Scanners in Action
Pentagon installs FLIR Thermal Cameras to Support Fight Against COVID-19FLIR Systems, Inc. announced it has installed its EST™ screening system at the Pentagon Visitor Center in Washington, D.C. The company’s integrated EST screening solution, the A700 EST-IS, features the FLIR A700 thermal imaging camera. The system is being used to screen visitors for elevated or higher than expected skin temperatures, which can help guard against the spread of COVID-19. The installation of its EST system at the Pentagon is one of many efforts FLIR is currently discussing with the United States Department of Defense officials for applications across the armed services. “We’re honored to again serve the U.S. defense community in this effort to better protect visitors to the Pentagon and support elevated skin temperature screening,” said FLIR President and CEO Jim Cannon.
Georgia’s Gwinnett County installs Dahua thermal cameras in gov't officesChannel 2 Action News has found at least one local government that has spent more than $100,000 on the cameras. Gwinnett County officials said the county purchased four of the fever detection systems for $29,500 each, a total of $118,000. The county of nearly a million people in the Atlanta suburbs, where more than 2,400 have confirmed infections and 87 have died, quickly approved an emergency purchase of four scanners to be installed inside county court and office buildings. Everyone who enters the Gwinnett County Justice Center passes by the cameras to have their temperatures screened. County officials told the press that before installing the cameras, they were checking every temperature by hand with thermometers. The cameras now allow them to check temperatures without close contact.
