Abstract : An object of this invention is to provide a system in which detected signals from an infrared scanner can be used to provide a calibrated display, and by which the data can be stored for later use. In the system according to the invention, image signals originating from an infrared scanner are transformed into a digitized form for storage in a computer and manipulated to produce a calibrated display. This transforms the merely qualitative utility of such a scanner into a quantitative capability allowing analysis of heat energy losses from structures of interest with only modest investments in capital equipment.
