ThermalPass, ready for the front line
As more places and businesses reopen across North America, many companies and governments are looking to technology to make sure they remain open. But safe reopening shouldn’t come at the cost of your privacy or risking your health by breaching social distancing, or the intrusion of having a person hold a camera or thermometer up to your head.
Using thermal sensor temperature-scanning systems like ThermalPass allow businesses, airports, schools, and other high-traffic locations the ability to see a person's temperature without human intervention while maintaining anonymity. This is possible because our technology does not use thermal cameras that infringe on a person's privacy.
The US government’s recent ban on Chinese thermal cameras also positions ThermalPass as the technology of choice because it respects civil liberties and is less expensive and easier to use than thermal cameras.
In the coming weeks, we plan to go to market with ThermalPass, and in so doing, we have taken advantage of an opportunity to thoroughly pressure test the system with the help of the acclaimed aerospace engineering firm, Makel Engineering, Inc. Makel’s engineers work with NASA and specialize in space-grade intelligent sensors and chemical conversion systems. We are fortunate to have their engineering team conduct rigorous testing procedures to ensure the successful launch of our device. This final stage of quality assurance and control ensures that we deliver the highest quality product to our customers.
ThermalPass blends into any environment and rapidly scans individuals’ temperatures as they pass through the device, without having to slow their walking pace. It delivers more accurate temperature readings than camera-based systems and does not require any human intervention while performing its temperature scans – thus adhering to social distancing protocols. The system captures 400 temperature readings per second, detecting body temperature with accuracy of +/- 0.2°C, making it one of the most reliable and accurate fever detection systems to hit the market.
We are also hearing that our US channel partners have evaluated competing thermal camera systems and have found them severely lacking from an operational and security point of view. They see our sensor-based system as a secure solution in helping to maintain a safe work environment and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The coronavirus has triggered a boom the thermal technology market. According to industry analysts, thermal imagers will be a $7.6 billion market. Pre-COVID-19, analysts forecasted a $4.5 billion market. It is expected that more than 1.5 million fever detection devices will be deployed over the next four years.
