Title: 
Hydrogen Fire Imager
Creator: 
NASA/Stennis Space Center
Subject: 
Fire department assistance
Description: 
The hand-held hydrogen fire imager was originally developed to "see" the invisible flames of hydrogen and alcohol fires. It has also proven helpful for firefighters who fight conventional fires by allowing them to see through dense smoke, locate the seat of the fire, and image smoldering embers. NASA and Lockheed Martin engineers at Stennis Space Center invented the fire imager and invited fire department and industry representatives from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to a demonstration. Stennis Space Center's fire department set fire to an abandoned building on the test site to demonstrate how the imager works on visible fires.
