Thermal Imager Plays Major Role in Capture of Boston Bombing Suspect
The arrest of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on April 19 was helped in great part by images provided to authorities through thermal image technology. Using a thermal camera, police were able to see the movements of the suspect as he hid inside boat, beneath a cover, in Watertown, Massachusetts.
