Pillars of our Nation’s Defense in post-COVID reconstruction

with keynote presenters Peter Baird and Elliot Shem-Tov
(Photobiomodulation therapy, infrared thermography, and regenerative medicine techniques and use cases for human and veterinary applications)
Thermography and infrared cameras were developed in 1929 as one of the first forms of anti-aircraft military defenses, protecting the United Kingdom from airborne threats. Today, the same technology serves as pillars of our nation’s defenses, as thermal cameras screen for elevated body temperatures, one of the most common symptoms of conditions such as COVID-19.
Join former McKinsey partner, Peter Baird, in a thoughtful and engaging discussion as we explore how infrared cameras are increasingly viewed as a safeguard in public safety, whether the military is protecting staff on a submarine or commercial leaders are defending medical staff in a civilian hospital.Click To Register For The Event
Thermography and infrared cameras were first applied as a military system in the trenches of World War I. Over the years, the technology has evolved, powering factories, protecting gas lines and over the last year, seems to be found virtually everywhere; you can’t board a flight or enter a gathering place without a quick temperature reading. After all, an elevated body temperature is the most common symptom of illness, including Covid-19. Yet many are wondering if the latest generation of thermal cameras are in fact a powerful weapon in our nation’s defense… or a risk to public health. No wonder so many defense, military and law enforcement leaders are trying to make sense of the confusion. Not to worry, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) – which some may be surprised to learn, oversees thermal and infrared cameras – recently helped clarify fact from fiction in the military applications of thermal imaging. The good news: If you work with infrared and thermal cameras with FDA 510(K) clearance you can take advantage of this break-through technology to further protect our nation’s defenses, civilian and military. The bad news, many cheap imports – without FDA 510(K) clearance — have flooded the market, leading to confusion and uncertainty.
