1. Industry background of handheld thermal imager

Crews and those who perform homeland security tasks (such as port security), and who should make emergency response to hazardous materials, whether the weather is good or bad, whether it is day or night, can take full advantage of the extensive features of handheld thermal imaging cameras to successfully complete key tasks on marine public safety vessels (e.g. police boats, fire boats, harbour patrol vessels, recreational boats and fishing boats).

2. Application of handheld thermal imager in maritime search and rescue

The maritime search and rescue mission is a very complex task. On-site commanders can use hand-held thermal imager to accurately locate victims, so as to smoothly launch underwater search and rescue work. Improved situational awareness helps to increase the safety of all participants.

In the absence of any lighting conditions, handheld thermal imaging cameras help maritime workers understand the dynamics on the land and delineate a warning area around the crime scene or search area, and provide effective assistance to law enforcement officers on the land. When the ship's staff communicate the possible safety issues to the units in the search area, it is very helpful for the maritime law enforcement officers and those at sea to carry out efficient and safe cooperation.

Handheld thermal imager are widely used in global maritime search and rescue operations. When someone falls into the water, the head of the person who falls into the water is often the only visible part of the body. On the handheld thermal imaging, the white or red "head-shaped" screen is set against a black or dark gray background. Since the head emits much more heat than water, the head is clearly visible. This effect can be obtained both in the day and at night, so as to truly achieve a 24-hour response.
