and hosted the 2005 Sasquatch l{esearch Conference in Bellir:rgham, WA. His background in rnulti-media

view and film in infrared, thermal imaging and High Definition. The camera is the highest resolution
(1024 x 768 pixel) uncooled, long wave 7-I4 um ancl 17 micron pixel pitch system in the world today,
except for classified U.S. military equipment,
The Aurora

Peak emittance from the human body is around 10 urn and so this carnera will provide the best possible
resolution, ICI IR Flash software used with the cameta allows image enhancementto 12 Mega Pixels
which is better than any uncooled thermal imaging aamera in existence today, In other words you will be
able to literally print a 12 Mega Pixel image with a Thermal/Infrared Camera by using the proprietary ICI
IR Flash Software, T'his is unheard of in the entire infrared camera manufacturing industru, The FOV
(Field Of View) lens used will be a 44 mnx 176 mm optic, f 1,2, To our knowledge no company has
used a telephoto lens of this size with an uncooled 1024 x76fl camera fol such a projeot other than
possibly the U,S, Defense. Putting an optic on this particular {}amera will be a first for ICI as it is the
newest uncooled IR camera on the market today andnot even offered to the public at this time.

Funding andtax deductible donations for ongoing operations of the Falcon Project will be handled
through the ISU Foundation, to the attention of Janet Schubert, Development Officer for the College of
Science and Engineering, For fuither information contact Dr, Meldrum (meldd@isu,edu; 208-282-4:\79)'
