Getting the Big [Thermal] Picture
The farther one can get from the subject of any thermal imaging survey while maintaining enough spatial resolution to achieve the needed image quality, the more efficient the data collection process becomes and the more useful the imagery becomes. This is the aerial infrared advantage.
Thermal imagery (IR) from aerial infrared thermal surveys of buildings, complexes, campuses, military bases and cities can be used for many purposes. Systems like supply steam and condensate return lines, hot water lines, chilled water lines, supply water mains, distribution piping, storm water drains and sewer lines can be monitored by looking at surface temperatures and importantly, patterns of heat on the surfaces. Heating and cooling distribution systems can be flown rapidly and inexpensively to provide thermal data for asset management planning, condition-based monitoring and predictive maintenance (PdM) activities. As a result of finding and documenting the condition of various systems, energy usage can be reduced, infrastructure can be saved and informed decisions can be made, with all the related asset management benefits. The main categories of objects that are typically surveyed from the air and that are discussed in this paper are: flat and low-sloped roofs, heating and cooling systems, solar fields and waterways.
