Abstract : Results of a laboratory investigation have demonstrated that infrared thermometry is a promising technique for measuring surface temperatures of Navy shipboard equipment and systems. Certain problems are encountered when applying the technique. These problems in general are discussed. A specific infrared device, the Teletemp Corp. Model 44, was evaluated. It substantially meets all its advertised specifications and with certain recommended modifications, should prove a valuable tool for shipboard thermometry.
