Research in the Egyptian pyramids: how does infrared thermography work?

Detectors infrared thermography are still fundamental in Egypt.

Thermographic detectors analyze in detail the temperature differences.

The infrared thermography is still one of the fundamental resources to continue advancing field investigations in the pyramids of Egypt. One of these latest findings are a particle of energy in the pyramid of Cheops at Giza, which will help explain the system of construction of these infrastructures with over 4,500 years of history. Research framed within the mission Scan Pyramids , also uses other devices such as next – generation drones.

Technology is key in investigations of this type.

Drones are also using last generation.

In the Egyptian Museum Cairo press conference in which he explained the last hour of the research project he was held Scan Pyramids . He was the director of the Institute for the Preservation and Innovation in Heritage, Mad Tayubi, which explained the particle detection of muons (energy particles that penetrate objects), with which they could discover whether there are hidden cameras .

Thanks to the use of cameras and detectors thermographic infrared is “has determined that on top of the Red Pyramid of Dahshur, south of Cairo, the temperature is always higher than the same location of other mausoleums” reports the EFE Agency in a press release. Instead, “there is no difference between the four sides of the same pyramid”.

Technology in the service of the story.

The different temperatures allow discovering buried objects or hidden cavities.

Of course, the investigation continues. And it will installing cameras infrared thermography inside the pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, Mycerinus and Dahshur.

Temperature differences which indicate that there is hollow behind the walls on which these differences are detected. Essential to continue to investigate and discover, for example, tracks if by Tutankhamen Nefertiti would be buried , as we told you in a previous article.

But how does a thermographic detector work?

Infrared thermography detects cavities and buried objects.

The FS-Thermoscan OKM detector is an example of thermography.

Such devices use the latest technology to locate buried objects and hidden cavities. Thanks to the software allows to analyze in detail all measurements which are shown in HD graphics .

Its operation is based on the measurement of temperature differences, identifying other warm and colder areas in the same field . These detectors work from a distance, without having direct contact.

Here you can see the FS-Thermoscan OKM , a detector of infrared thermography and its technical details.
