: Kindly tell us about the camera & its features for fire mitigation?
As a theory, almost all objects around us emits infrared(IR) radiations which our eyes cannot see. Thermal Camera captures these IR radiations, transform the same to electrical signal and the same gets converted to video- but in the form of heat. So, in other words, we "SEE" heat with the help of Thermal Camera.
Picture below explains the text in visual form. This picture is for illustrative purpose only. Since IR radiations are everywhere, these cameras have application almost at all the places.
For fire fighting field, application like, location of fire, fire attack, search & Rescue, Clearing site after fire are applicable.

We have full focus for Indian market and hence has local office in Delhi with facility to provide after sales support.
What economic scenario do you see for the fire industry in India?
Fire Industry for Thermal Cameras is slowly picking up and I think it has good future the way overall India is growing.
What are the challenges in Indian market?
