AITScan Government Services

The AITscan Government Services product enables you to scan all the government facilities roofs at once so that budgets can be prepared and repairs prioritized. In this phased approach, less money needs to be spent on government buildings that do not have problems, or have only a few or minor problems.

Understanding Aerial Infrared Imagery

  • Thermal infrared (IR) imagery is imagery that shows heat. It is often in the form of a grayscale picture whose shades of gray indicate the differences in temperature and emissivity of objects in the image. Typically, objects in the image that look lighter are warmer and those that look darker are cooler. Bright white objects are the warmest in the images. Black objects are the coolest. Any object with a temperature above absolute zero ( 0 Kelvin or –273 degrees Celsius) emits infrared radiation. An infrared picture only shows objects which emit infrared wavelengths in the 3000-5000 nanometer range. Objects in visible light wavelengths of 400 to 700 nanometers are detected, but only because they also emit heat. An example of this would be a warm street light that can be seen in the IR imagery. We record infrared imagery on digital videotape and may later copy it to a VHS videotape and/or a JPEG digital image file. The image may be modified in a number of ways to enhance its value to the end user, such as creating a false-color image or adjusting the brightness and contrast of a grayscale image. The digital images are captured directly to JPEG format and placed on a CD-ROM.

Advantages of Aerial IR imaging using fixed-wing aircraft

  • Production of reports with high-angle, straight down infrared images, which reflections and capture large areas at once, making the imagery easier to analyze and the report less expensive to produce.
  • Since images are captured straight-down or ‘plan view’, the report is clear, concise and easy to understand because infrared images, visual images and AutoCAD® drawings are reconciled.
  • The aerial infrared division of Stockton Infrared Thermographic Services, Inc. (AITscan) has performed numerous qualitative infrared thermographic surveys of steam systems for universities, cities and industrial clients nationwide. We brought together all the components that truly make us the state-of-the-art in the field of infrared thermography and our deliverable product is the best on the market today. We use high-resolution infrared imagers, digital recording equipment, techniques that have been refined over the years and the attitude that we are going to obtain the best imagery possible and produce a professional report in a timely manner.
