Temperature detection with infrared thermal cameras has been around for over a decade, and used extensively outside of the USA by national governments. The underlying infrared tech was originally developed over 40 years ago, and is viewed as a mature technology.
Athena is rapidly improving this mature temperature detection technology to work throughout a diverse set of environments. We have deployed Elevated Body Temperature Detection Systems in Fortune 500's, The State of Texas, healthcare, food production, manufacturers, 911-call centers. One of our first Elevated Body Temperature Detection customers, says that Athena is a game changer because of it is: 1) accuracy 2) speed and 3) ease of use/install/operations.
Also, our company has proven other more advanced technologies like Gun Detection that is a greater technical accomplishment than temperature. A white paper written by Texas State University is listed on the front page of our website. Given the COVID-19 crises, Athena wants to be a part of the solution to the pandemic, so we quickly adapted our tech to solve for this new threat.
