FLIR Systems is using its T1030sc thermal imaging camera to help bat conservation and research efforts. Bats play a major role in our ecosystem, but due to numerous threats bat populations have declined significantly over the years. FLIR thermal imaging technology is playing a key role in helping experts understand, and conserve, bat populations in the United Kingdom.

A video report from bat conservation advisors, Simon Holmes and Joe Nunez-Mino, from the Bat Conservation Trust in the UK, explains the important role that FLIR's T1030sc thermal imaging cameras play in their work.

The T1030sc is a portable, high-speed, high definition thermal imaging and measurement camera. It is designed for researchers, and scientists who need the highest resolution and sensitivity possible in a flexible, battery powered handheld package. Drawing upon 50 years of experience, the camera records full 1024 x 768 resolution images at 30 frames per second, with lossless high-definition (HD) radiometric imagery at up to 120 Hz that you can view, acquire, analyze, and share in FLIR ResearchIR Max or MathWorks MATLAB.
