A forward looking infrared is a thermal imaging sensor where sensor output is based on infrared radiation (usually between 3-5 or 8-12 micron spectral range) generated by the external scene. FLIRs are used for targeting acquisition and aircraft pilotage on both the AH-64 Apache and the newly developed RAH-66 Comanche.[1]
