Contrasting temperature background for observing objects and events with an IR camera

Technology description

The name of the technology: Contrasting temperature background for observing objects and events with an IR camera
Challenge: When observing an object with an IR camera, if the observed object has the same temperature as its surroundings, it may merge with the background when evaluating the thermogram. This effect can be avoided if the background has a contrast temperature.
Description: Temperature contrast is achieved by placing a temperature contrast background behind the observed object. Mechanically, it is a sandwich structure consisting of a matrix that forms its own thermal background, as well as one or more Peltier cells and a heat exchanger that removes heat from the hot side of the Peltier cells.
Commercial opportunity: Commercial applications can be found wherever it is necessary to observe an object in the infrared region, especially in the vicinity or directly on the contours, and where the temperature of the observed object does not differ from the ambient temperature. These are cases of so-called low temperature excitation.
IP protection status: registered utility model of the Czech Republic No. 35734
Development status:

Phase 2

Corresponds with TRL 3 and TRL 4

Feasibility study. There is a realistic design of the technology and the initial tests in the laboratory are leading to the specification of the technology requirements and its capabilities.

  • TRL 3 represents a complete idea of a technology with the design of concrete steps, tests and experiments that will need to be carried out to verify that the idea is realistic
  • TRL 4 is a verification of functionality in the laboratory. The result of TRL 4 is the so-called Proof-of-Concept. Technology is therefore designed and tested for its functionality under limited conditions
