Athena’s Elevated Temperature Detection System to help detect Fevers
Athena’s Elevated Body Temperature Detection System to help detect Fevers provides fast, accurate mass screening for elevated temperatures. The system is non-invasive, non-contact, and fast. The system identifies the face of the subject, ignores hot spots like hot lights above and other hot objects on the person like a cell phone or hot coffee. The person looks at the camera, and the system finds the hottest point on the face near the eyes, called the inner canthus. Near the eyes is the area that most closely correlates with basal body temperature, so the subject needs to remove glasses and look at the camera. Athena is best utilized as the first of a two checkpoint system, where an elevated temperature that could be a fever is then confirmed by a second medical thermometer.
Please Note: The system can only detect elevated temperature and does not diagnose any virus or disease.
Fast and Frictionless
Quickly scan for temperature.
Highly Accurate and Precise Temperature Sensor, Accuracy within 0.3 ℃ and 0.6° F with HSRP-Heat Source Reference Device (Blackbody).
Automatically calibrates and adjusts based on ambient temperature conditions
Continuously self-calibrating for near-zero drift
No manual recalculation needed
The system measures for elevated temperature with the use of a thermal camera. Fever is a symptom of SARS, Ebola, Coronavirus/COVID-19, and many other diseases. This system is not a diagnosis tool. A medical-grade thermometer and healthcare specialist should be consulted for medical diagnosis. The system can only detect elevated temperatures that may be a fever and does not diagnose any virus or disease.
HSRP device (Blackbody) recommended to improve accuracy to 0.3 ° C

For use inside, without crosswind, away from HVAC
Does not pick up asymptomatic, non-febrile people

How It Works:
The highly accurate infrared-thermal camera measures multiple points on the subjects’ face near the eye, called the inner canthus, to determine the highest temperature. By detecting and quantifying multiple points on the inner canthus, which is constantly emitting infrared energy, the artificial intelligence-based platform can then make necessary adjustments to improve accuracy. Pre-configured 99.5 F alarm thresholds send the notification, once the subject that passes into the screen is emitting energy at or above this threshold temperature. Alerts come via password-protected HTTPS web application, secure mobile app, or integrated security or video management system. The system is non-invasive, non-contact, and fast. The system identifies the face of the subject, ignores hot spots like hot lights above and other hot objects on the person like a cell phone or hot coffee. The person looks at the camera, and the system finds the hottest point on the face near the eyes, called the inner canthus. Near the eyes is the area that most closely correlates with basal body temperature, so the subject needs to look at the camera. Athena is best utilized as the first of a two checkpoint system, where fever is then confirmed by a second FDA approved medical thermometer.
Top Features Include:
The visual camera records in parallel with the infrared thermal camera so that we can show a picture to identify the subject. The real-time visual camera stream includes a visual of the Alarmed High-Temperature numerical fever reading, adjacent to the subject.
The platform is automatically set up with 99.5 as (can be user-set) the alert notification threshold, and reduce the demand on operating staff because it’s “always-on”.
High-Temperature Alarm and Notification that may be a fever
Temperatures above the notification threshold are automatically sent to the web application and mobile application. The same username and password are used to log in via either a web browser for the web application or mobile app.
The Center of Disease Control advertises that fever, shortness of breath, and cough are symptoms of COVID-19. The system can be designed to rapidly, safely, without contact, scan large volumes of people for a certain threshold temperature as a monitoring event, which is determined by the owner. This system is part of two-step screening, where the second step is a medical-grade thermometer. If there is an elevated body temperature found and confirmed, the additional inquiry is recommended as to why. Elevated human body temperature is not a definitive marker of viral infection and just a possible symptom where additional medical advice should be sought. Furthermore, non-febrile people can also be carriers of contagious disease, so even those without elevated temperatures are not necessarily without the disease. Always consult your physician for personalized medical advice. It’s out of an abundance of caution that the Athena Elevated Human Temperature Detection System is recommended as part of a holistic approach to public safety. The system can only detect a high temperature and does not diagnose any virus or disease. This system is not approved or cleared by the FDA. Temperature measurements from the Athena system should not be solely or primarily relied upon to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19, or any other disease.
Must use an HSRP device (blackbody), and screen subjects one at a time.
