The Warlock is a totally autonomous infrared spectral imaging camera that has been designed for field applications. The Warlock runs off a 12 volt battery and can run for 4 hours before a battery change is necessary. This unique infrared spectral imaging camera has an embedded computer based on a Power PC for digital video data storage thus eliminating the need for a frame grabber. It has an Ethernet port so that it can be operated over the internet or transfer video and data files from within the camera to remote location in the next room or around the world.
