MoD Optimises Use of Infrared
The Defence organisation has been making increasing use of infrared cameras on its vessels and aircraft over the past years. Examples are the forward-looking infrared, the Sirius long-range infrared sensor and night-vision goggles. Because the armed forces are using this equipment more often, there is also a need to improve its use.
"EOSTAR calculates the optimum settings for infrared equipment. The system processes the environmental conditions, such as temperature, air pressure, humidity and oceanographic conditions", explains Lieutenant Commander Mario Bertelink. As Head of Meteorology and Oceanography of the Hydrographic Service, he is closely involved in the introduction of the system within the navy.
