Everyone needs to get a couple of these new thermal imaging rigs for you surival or zombie hunting kits.



Thermal imaging is far from a new idea, but that doesn't mean it has been forgotten. Thanks to slim sensors, the new lineup of small, mountable thermal imagers from BAE Systems promises to turn solidiers into more efficient marksmen.

The two big products from BAE are the SkeetIR and the StalkIR, a pair of battlefield-ready monoculars. Where as the SkeetIR has a footprint the size of a credit card, the StalkIR has a 640x480 resolution, dual lasers, and a magnetic compass. Both can be clipped onto weapons as scopes, while the SkeetIR can also be clipped to a helmet.

BAE says that they took the input of troops who fought in Afghanistan and incorporated those insights into the design of the imagers. They also released a pair of thermal binoculars, which as all the same features as the StalkIR, but, you know, with an extra eyehole.

Happy hunting!

Military cops used their Thermal Imaging to watch people getting it on in base housing or watching people spank away in military barracks.

If BAE makes Thermal Imaging cheaper it'll reduce profits to the Porn Industry.

They are not very new but would definitely come in handy, too bad they cost a whole lot of money.

wouldn't a zombie be at ambient temperature

I cant wait till these hit the surplus market, I have a lot of need for decent thermal imaging, but the $1X,xxx price tag turns my stomach.

The process of decomposition of the zombie would have it register higher than ambient I think ...
Mind you , never met one when carrying thermal imaging gear before.

The other thing to consider is the TYPE of zombification you are dealing with. If you are dealing with the biomedical experiment zombie apocalypse, then the chances are good that not only would any continued decomposition make the body slightly above ambient, but so would the biological processes keeping the zombie from falling down. Effort expended by a running zombie (I know, running zombies arent proper zombies,but it happens in the movies so I have covered it) , would surely create enough frictional stress,as well as muscular effort, regardless of its having no pulse, to register on a decent rig.

The only problem you might get, is with the sort of zombie that is bought about by some sort of black magic, wide scale demonic possession, or vodoo, although little is known about the real affects of all these things. See, when dealing with that which is outside the bounds of science, one leaves behind the familiar arcane knowledge that an average chap might have at his disposal.

One can never be sure what the effects of such a thing might have on the body, wether it would be hotter or colder, wether it would be more or less mobile, or to what degree the magick has affected it. Mind you , its all a bit moot because skeletonisation occurs within twelve to forteen days , so unless the method includes a complete ceasation of decomposition, you would only have to avoid the zombie for a fortnight or so, before the problem ceased to be a problem.

Depends on if it has stopped bacteria growth that occurs in dead bodies. It should give off the same heat signature as a compost heap.

I guess I am just more of the old school where you have to chop the zombies to bits and then burn the bits. I have always felt that whatever the zombification process it is so inimical to life that the normal decomposers like insects and bacteria will be unable process the zombies.

One thing I know for certain is that there are as many types of zombies as there are people who talk about them. Anyways a thermal sight would surely be a useful tool until the batteries ran out.

It would most likely be best to use in the north. Besides, Zombies have a greater chance of long term survival, the colder it gets.

hehe Im old school too.. in one of the cheesy Living Dead movies of the '80s, kids burned a zombie in a crematorium near a cemetary.. the fumes woke the entire graveyard!


Don't burn yer Zombies without serious ventillation and filtration systems!!!!!
Im more for a Chemical solution to the problem..( forgive the pun) and would dissolve the chopped up infected remains in Vats of lye.
