Dan Simon from GM Shares His Years of Successful IR Apps!!
Online — Dan Simon spent many years working with Infrared technology in the Labs and plants of General Motors and some of their suppliers. In this video and others he introduces us and a class of students to some of the key ways to successes that he proved worked.
It’s more than dealing with the technology involved. He had to prove that this technology saved his organization real money and justified his way into creating one of the best examples of a Job Done Right.
He helped create a model program that is the envy of many other NDT specialists, process analysis experts and thermographers world-wide.
There are several other YouTube short videos that accompany the one above and the entire program is available online for free, just by asking for the 1 hour plus video on DVD.
The other segments are shown below, but if you jump to the very last page in this series all the links are together on the one page (hint).
Quebec City, CANADA — Telops, Inc. are well regarded for their high-speed thermal imaging and hyperspectral analysis infrared cameras.
They also bring special technologies to more common applications, but with a very high-tech component.
Their applications Notes, Videos and many technical publications are on the cutting edge of high-speed and exacting analyses in the infrared.
High-performance hyperspectral imaging sensors, and scientific infrared cameras can be used in a multitude of different applications including,

When performing high accuracy radiation thermometry, the size-of-source effect (SSE) of a filter radiometer can provide a significant contribution to the uncertainties associated with the measurements.
During the development of a new filter radiometer, the THermodynamic Optical Radiometer (THOR), which we designed specifically to measure the melting points of High Temperature Fixed Point (HTFP) cells, indirect SSE measurements were performed on a prototype instrument to aid selection of optical components and their optimum positions with the aim of minimising its SSE.
We performed tests to choose the objective lens, and to understand the effects of the collimating lens.
QIRT Conference Archives, Papers & More…
Online — An international conference, the first one Quantitative Infrared Thermography (QIRT’92), was held on the premises of École Centrale de Paris , in Château-Malabry, France. During the conference, the QIRT Working Group was established.
Since then, there have 13 QIRT conferences (see below).
The most recent edition, QIRT Asia 2015 was held in Mamallapuram, India, 6-10 July 2015.
The new QIRT website (http://qirt.org/) contains the listing and links to the papers from each conference, see listing below, along with information on the QIRT Journal and forthcoming conferences. Continue reading →

Gaithersburg MD, USA — The NIST Radiation Thermometry Short Course is offered every 2 years and covers the fundamentals of radiometric physics and instrumentation associated with determining temperature from observations of thermal radiation from materials.
Participants will gain a good understanding of temperature measurement using thermal radiation, proper uncertainty analysis, treatment of the measurement equation, and an understanding of the calibration chain for radiance temperature. Continue reading →
