We are a team of engineers, scientists and general tech heads with a unique blend of expertise and experience in thermography, aerospace engineering, defence technologies and structural health monitoring.


We have developed the world’s first fully-integrated, microbolometer based thermoelastic stress imaging system. This system is not only extremely sensitive, but also user friendly, compact, easily deployable and capable of generating precise stress maps.

  • Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA) systems built around photonic infrared camera systems have been around since the 1970s, but have limited use due to their bulkiness, expense and complexity, which can make them difficult to deploy.
  • In 2005, the Aerospace Division of the Australian Department of Defence (Defence Science and Technology Group) embarked on a project to build a usable TSA system, based on low-cost, small package microbolometer cameras. This was the breakthrough that would later lead to the inception of 1 MILLIKELVIN.
  • Almost a decade later in 2014, Department of Defence (Defence Science and Technology Group) and the team from LRM Technologies (key personnel who had worked on the project with Department of Defence in 2005) were determined to develop this innovation into an accessible product for the rest of the world.
  • In 2016, a formal commercialisation agreement was engaged between Department of Defence (Defence Science and Technology Group) and LRM Technologies and work on the commercial product commenced.
  • In 2018, with the first concept demonstrator developed, 1 MILLIKELVIN Pty Ltd was formed to continue the development and provide a dedicated company to launch this product.
  • In 2020, 1 MILLIKELVIN releases the LTS-640V.

Our Mission


We were born from a great idea that seemed impossible and that is the driving force behind what we do. We want to bring great ideas to life and share them with the world. We want to develop real, elegant solutions to real-world engineering problems, that are as elegant as they are practical.


We strive to build products that are relevant for our customers, enabling them to drive innovation and advance their capabilities. The LTS-640V was built specifically for users of TSA, based on what they need. It offers high performance in a package that is easy to operate and deploy.


Our products are designed for engineers who develop the next generation of aircraft and other high performance vehicles of tomorrow, built with advanced materials, structures and manufacturing techniques.


Our products will deliver new insights into how your structure is performing and how it can be improved. 


Put simply, we help you build better, smarter, safer
