Researchers who want to stop motion on fast-moving targets, or freeze frame the thermal dynamics of targets that heat and cool rapidly, need thermal cameras that can do more than achieve fast frame rates. True high speed infrared imaging requires fast integration times – down to just microseconds – as well as the ability to capture data at 29,000 frames per second. Next generation infrared detectors now make it possible to record high speed data with the full 640 x 512 frame, meaning researchers can perform dynamic analysis of jet engine turbine blades, supersonic projectiles, explosions, and more, without losing areas of the frame to windowing.
Watching Bullets Fly with FLIR High Speed Thermal!
We bring the FLIR x6900sc into the field to look at firearm mechanics, how body armor reacts to bullets, and catching a bullet in flight! The FLIR x6900sc is one of our highest frame rate thermal imaging cameras.
