Say What?

As a retired FF that was on the line of many of these type fires, I didn't really get much of anything about infra red and what it does from this article. A night time view without the affects of day time weather. What was the "old technology GP? Tell me more, tell me more

High definition infrared night vision thermal imaging - much better than the older technology.
