The thermal infrared camara mounted an uncooled microbolometer (BOL) and the visible camera (VIS) were boarded on UNIFORM-1. The thermal infrared camera provides us images in which high temperature object appears brighter than that of low temperature. The visible camera, which has the same field of view as the thermal infrared cameras' field of view, helps identification of geographical location of wildfires.
