I do not mean to veare from the answers Paul. Please excuse my thinking process.

  1. Thermal imaging cameras were developed during which war?
    Raytheon first demonstrated the technology to the military in 1979. In the late 1980s, the federal government awarded hIgh-density array development or HIDAD contracts to both Raytheon and Honeywell for the development of thermal imaging technology for practical military applications.

  2. Which thermal color palate best is most commonly used by home inspectors?
    Hard to disseminate. Depends upon the thermal camera.
    Rainbow/Ironbow.

  3. Which color pallet best shows thermal sensitivity?
    Thermal sensitivity is measured by mK. Not pallette. Grayscale or inverted grayscale.

  4. When using a camera during a rainstorm you should.
    I do not mean to veare from the answers Paul.
    Place a protective cover over the lens. Either a Lens hood or clear plastic bag around the lens with a rubber band ‘adjust’ emissivity to counter reflectance.

Thanks. Right back at you.

A call came in the form of a text message. A client needed help. I posted prematurely and forgot to return to complete my answer.

Sorry. I missed it. I will call you after Christmas. Happy holidays to you and yours.

Hi Roy.
I do not feel I have done anything wrong.
As well, I am not concerned about winning.

When it comes to infrared thermal imaging, the questions appeared ambiguous.
No reflection on Paul. The material is board.

I will try to do better next time.

Sorry everyone. Pardon me.

Is there any winners yet!

Not yet, one came close.

All the questions came from a trusted Thermagraphy site and the I checked to see if other sites verified the answers and they did.

On ambiguity?
I suppose if a person wanted you could say I made up bad questions and we could have a difference of opinion. Regardless, the questions are meant to be answered, not argued as this isn’t a debate. With all due respect I think the questions are reasonable and will have logical responses.
