COATINGSPRO MAY 2018 81 Next-Generation Thermal Imaging Android Smartphone FLIR Systems, Inc. announced that Bullitt Group, a manufacturer of rugge- dized smartphones, has embedded FLIR's Lepton thermal microcamera into the new Cat S61. Cat Phones' most advanced Android smartphone, the Cat S61 joins the "ermal by FLIR" program — created to fuel thermal innovation. Equipped with Lepton, the industry's smallest, lightest, and lowest-cost thermal imaging camera core, this smartphone enables users to see in total darkness and visualize heat invisible to the naked eye. "FLIR's technology has played a crucial role in bringing thermal imaging to a variety of professionals, enhancing the capabilities and awareness of construction workers and anyone requiring a device built to survive the elements," said CEO James Cannon.
