Microbolometer Thermoelastic Evaluation (MiTE)
MiTE is a thermoelastic stress analysis capability that exploits recent advances in low-cost microbolometer detector technology to create a highly affordable, rugged, compact and portable means of imaging stress in dynamically loaded structures.
The MiTE application is available as freeware to registered users.
See the MiTE flyer for information about hardware requirements and potential applications.
See the MiTE Installation & User Guide for instructions on how to install and use the software.
